Matic Network’s Incentivized Public Testnet Event
An experimental testing event for everyone who is willing to participate in validating Matic Network, or test its limitations or earn mainnet MATIC tokens by showcasing technical skills, you’re all welcome to practice and compete with other validators on our testnet and earn rewards.
Setup your node and get comfortable. We’ll provide you with the setup guide before this and help you in the process. Staking does not begin yet. Just be observant here. Validating and the fun will begin soon!
7 - 10 days
Staking begins here! We’ll provide you the faucet to fetch tokens. You need to maintain your uptime; produce blocks at block producer layer or BOR, participate in consensus and commit checkpoints when acting as proposer at the validator layer or Heimdall. Your uptime score will determine your rank in the competition.

Compete for power! Now that we have already tried our happy flow, we can turn on the competitive mode and fight to win. Gradually we’ll focus to verify if the network is able to identify and penalize nodes for their bad behaviour. The one with the most stake wins.
Soon after Stage 1
There will be lucrative rewards for adversarial behaviour.
We’ll inform you once we are ready to face attacks. You are encouraged to modify software and collude with other players.
You are always welcome to build new ecosystem components.
