Hello everyone,

We've been notified of potential issues with the earlier released Daedalus Mainnet 2.0.1 wallet, with regards to the option for restoring ITN funds being disabled.

Kindly bear with us as we raise this with the teams and clarify further details.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
As per the IOHK team's response, the recent release of Daedalus Mainnet wallet (2.0.1) was intended to fix bugs and reported issues, not (yet) for allowing ITN rewards/wallets to be redeemable.

This functionality will be added very soon. Please read more details about "ITN Rewards - When and How to Redeem" and keep an eye out on IOHK's official social channels for more updates regarding this.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

PS: If you run into any Deadalus wallet issues, please submit a support ticket.
How to delegate on Shelley?

To delegate on Shelley, you'll need to start with the basics. Here's a short Daedalus guide to restoring your old wallet, creating a new Shelley wallet and safely moving your ada funds over.

More video guides coming soon!

Cardano 재단 홈페이지가 새단장을 했습니다. Project Renovare의 마지막 단계로서, 새롭게 편성된 브랜딩은 스테이킹 및 위임을 통해 분산화 단계에 돌입한 Cardano 블록체인의 현상태를 반영합니다.
カルダノ財団の新しくデザインされたウェブサイトが公開されました。 Project Renovareの最後の成果物として、刷新されたブランディングは、ステーキングと委任の開始により分散化されたCardanoの準備状況を反映しています。

"The Cardano Foundation updates its website and refreshes its brand identity as part of Project Renovare"

During the Cardano Virtual Summit 2020: Shelley Edition, we introduced the Cardano Foundation’s brand reappraisal—the last deliverable of Project Renovare.
In association with McCann Dublin, the Cardano Foundation and the website underwent a major refresh to coincide with the release of staking and delegation on the Cardano protocol.

This new era for developers and enterprise users of Cardano required a refreshed approach to the Cardano Foundation’s communications, a reiteration of our core missions, and a rethink of the way we begin attracting developer talent to the wider Cardano ecosystem.

OUT NOW: Daedalus 2.1.0 is the first major update to the Daedalus wallet and introduces two new features: Shelley ITN rewards redemption, and spendable rewards
on Cardano.

The “Redeem Incentivized Testnet rewards” feature lets you redeem ITN rewards to a Shelley wallet. This requires both the wallet recovery phrase (from the Daedalus Rewards wallet containing the rewards) and a #Shelley wallet with enough funds to pay the transaction fees.

Download today, only from the official site. Rewards included in the wallet balance are now spendable automatically when transactions occur. And completely transparent for users. Enjoy redeeming your ITN rewards. And happy staking!
