- Cardano will Offer New Incentive to Shelley Testnet Users
Cardano is among the top digital assets based on Blockchain technology today. The network has continued to invent new ways to make sure that its users enjoy better service. The latest scheme to this effect is the incentivized Shelley testnet that the network is bringing to users. In a bid to further engage its users and help them experiment with the Shelley testnet, Cardano has revealed that it will launch an incentive program shortly. It is rather uncommon to incentivize users who participate in a Blockchain testnet.

The initiative is a good one. This is because it is common knowledge that the actual purpose of Shelley’s testnet is to try new technologies. In the Cardano network, things are done slightly different from other Blockchain projects. The Cardano team has now confirmed that the incentivized testnet is going to be launched sometime in the future. As the network’s developers prepare to usher in the Shelley upgrade, Cardano is moving into a new era. Collecting as many user feedback as possible

In an unexpected turn, we may soon see the first MMA match between two figures in the cryptocurrency world. Jason Appleton (@jasonappleton) has set up a fighting match between YouTuber ChicoCrypto and Cardano (ADA) Founder, Charles Hoskinson. The boxing match will be done with the intention of sharing all the profits with St. Judes Children’s Hospital. What started off as a joke may actually end up becoming reality.
Hoskinson responded to Appleton’s request with a definitive ‘yes.’ “Let’s raise a million for the kids,” he writes. He seemed ready and eager to go through with the plan.
ChicoCrypto has also affirmed his intention to go through with the fight. He confirmed his intention of taking on Hoskinson during his own live stream. The fight is supposed to be in August 2020, which gives both fighters around 9 months to prepare.

Some, however, were not amused and even annoyed that this story was clogging up “real news” on Cardano (ADA). One user writes that he doesn’t look forward to hearing about this for the next 9 months and hopes “this whole thing dies.”
The idea probably came from the recent boxing match between KSI and Logan Paul which amassed significant media buzz. Although nowhere on the same level, the fight between ChicoCrypto and the Cardano founder would undeniably bring significant buzz to the industry, albeit for the wrong reasons some would say. Recently, ChicoCrypto drew attention to himself by claiming that Bakkt was Wall Street’s attack on Bitcoin.
For now, the fight is on—and if the two do end up raising “millions for the kids,” then it’d be a net positive for everyone. The naysayers may be proven wrong after all if it’s all for a good cause.
