Two groups of the Storeman Group are now in the state of competition

Currently, there are two groups of Storeman Group in the state of competition (or so-called election):

The Storeman Group named testnet_005 is the successor group of the previous group testnet_003. In other words, after the group test_003 ends at 8:49 AM UTC on October 16, 2020, the group test_005 will be the right next group. Storeman nodes and delegators in the group test_003 will automatically enter the group test_005 if those nodes and delegators don’t choose to exit. Note: For the new comers who want to participate in the election, please set up well your Storeman node on server before 4:00 AM on October 16, 2020 UTC.

The Storeman Group named Aries_001 is a new group which started election yesterday. Aries_001 will enter the group running state at 4:00 AM on October 18, 2020 UTC.

An Additional Storeman Group For Testing Will Open To The Public

Dear Community:

Thank you everyone for participating in Wanchain 5.0 testing with extremely high enthusiasm. Due to one Storeman Group only allows 21 Storeman nodes to participate, only 15% of the Storeman candidates were selected into the Storeman Group finally, but more than 100 candidates could not join in the group. In order to ensure that all interested node operators get a chance to participate, we have improved our process for distributing test coins. You can check out our new testnet coin faucet here, and read below for more detailed information.

To give more chances to testers, Wanchain team has made a decision to add an additional Storeman Group for the community to test. In order to participate, simply follow the same instructions from our original post on the testing program. Here is the information in detail:

  • Election Time: Oct 14th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC To Oct 16th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC
  • Storeman Nodes Setting up on Server: Oct 16th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC To Oct 18th, 2020, at 4:00am UTC
  • Storeman Group Running Period: 7 days
  • Storeman Amount: 21
  • Bounty Rule: The selected Storeman nodes will be rewarded with 300 WAN; those unseleted Storeman nodes will have a chance of luck draw.
  • WAN Test Coin Application:
