The Cardano blockchain clocked its second year this month, two years of broad research leading to the launch of a testnet for the new era of its development. As per the report by Esser, Cardano has been soaring high in the last few weeks, the network execution of Jormungander, the node that carries out the protocol that administers Cardano, supposedly got a good response from the community, which according to Esser influenced the development of Cardano.

An incentivized testnet employs real incentives in the shape of staking and delegation profits to bring in participation, unlike the traditional testnet which is a closed-off sandbox environment.

The testnet will permit users who save their ADA on hardware wallet to transfer their funds to either Daedalus or Yoroi wallets before the snapshot and then return them to cold storage after the snapshot is completed. This process will allow users who want to engage in the testnet to have all of the ADA they have in real life copied in the testnet.
