Testnet Incentives

Participants on our testnets can now earn Joystream Testnet Tokens (tJOYs) backed by fiat currency.

Token in numbers

Value backing dynamics

There are two dynamics that impact the amount of value backing the tokens at any given time.

Replenishment

The fiat pool will be topped up weekly, without minting new tokens, effectively increasing the exchange rate (all else being equal).

Last replenishment: $150 on September 20th

KPI and Bounty Rewards

For every new Council term, Jsgenesis will create Council KPIs, each assigned a USD value. If the goals are achieved, Jsgenesis will reward the Council without affecting the exchange rate.

Jsgenesis will also create Community KPIs, similar to bounties, but managed by the Council. These are also assigned a USD value, and if achieved, Jsgenesis will (indirectly) reward the individual or group that achieved the goals.
