Earlier this week, we successfully captured ada balances in supported wallets across Cardano’s mainnet for the balance check snapshot. This means that if you held ada in a mainnet Daedalus or Yoroi wallet at that time (12.00 UTC on November 12), you can now check your testnet balance via special Balance check versions of Daedalus and Yoroi. This is an optional step in preparation for the full rollout of the Incentivized Testnet later this month. But we recommend you do this to check that you are all set to take part in the real snapshot. If you have any issues while checking your testnet balance, please submit a support ticket on the IOHK support portal for Daedalus or on the Yoroi support page for Yoroi. To download the balance check wallets, head to the official Incentivized Testnet website. You can also watch tutorial videos on how to use the balance check wallets to verify your testnet balance below.

Upcoming Shelley Incentivized Testnet Main Snapshot: what to expect? Over the past few months, we have been rolling out our Shelley testnet. You may have been following our reports about progress on the self-node and networked phases. Now, we are heading into the third and final phase before Shelley goes live on mainnet: an Incentivized Testnet that all ada holders can join to earn real rewards. This marks a significant milestone in the progress of the Shelley testnet, and in Cardano’s development. During this phase, ada holders will be able to earn real rewards from delegating their stake on the Incentivized Testnet.
