MANTRA Chain Incentivized Testnet (Phase 1)

2 min readNov 2, 2023


Following diligent development efforts behind the scenes, MANTRA Chain has reached an important technical benchmark — the public testnet.

The launch of the public testnet marks a critical juncture in our product roadmap, allowing the community to trial network capabilities ahead of wider commercial rollout.

We’re extremely excited to officially launch MANTRA Chain as the first network dedicated to the development of compliant decentralized applications. However, before we take that big step, we want to ensure everything is as refined as possible.

The testnet will give validators hands-on experience to stress test the network and provide invaluable feedback to help us strengthen the code even further.

Phase 1 of the MANTRA Chain testnet kicks off on November 8th and will run for approximately 6 weeks.

To reward participation and attract early adopters, MANTRA Chain is allocating up to $500,000 worth of AUM tokens in incentives across both phases of the testnet.

The testnet will feature challenges where validators can earn points by completing missions. At the end, overall scores will determine token rewards distributed to top performers.

MANTRA Chain Testnet Goals (Phase 1)

We have designed the MANTRA Chain Incentivized Testnet with the following key goals:

1. Network Security

Test transactions and ensure everything functions securely as intended.

2. Network Enhancement

Give validators hands-on experience to provide invaluable feedback helping us refine and strengthen MANTRA Chain.

3. Early Adopter Recognition

Foster an active validator community committed to governance and upgrades by rewarding early contributions.

MANTRA Chain Testnet Missions

The Testnet Phase 1 will require validators to test various scenarios and submit evidence that the task has been completed.
