Dear #Cardano Community. It looks like some of the well known community members (either officials, ambassadors or normal members) are being impersonated on a massive scale. Please don't fall victim for these scams and report any fake account you see. Thanks! #ada #reportscam

Want to see what #ada rewards you could earn when staking arrives on mainnet later this summer? IOHK has released a staking calculator for the #Shelley Testnet, so you can estimate what your rewards could be on mainnet.

While you can try out delegation and staking features, there are currently no rewards on the Shelley testnet. ada rewards come with Shelley on the Cardano mainnet. Currently, we estimate rewards of around 4.6% annualized on your staked ada.*

Factors like stake pool performance total staking volume will affect the exact % (percentage) rewards you should expect. Here’s the calculator. So you can do the math. Use the sliders to understand how various parameters will affect your rewards: https://testnets.cardano.org/en/shelley/tools/staking-calculator/

For a deeper dive, check out our full walkthrough with Dr. Lars Brünjes, one of the core team behind #Cardano incentive design and implementation. He'll take you through the core features and help explain some of the theory.

Lars will take you through the full calculator functionality, explaining parameters and options for both ada holders and stake pools, and covering both basic and advanced modes. See here: https://youtu.be/8GiH-FNy-Oc

Exciting times ahead, with staking coming soon. But a final note of caution. Scammers will try to take advantage and catch the unwary. Remember: to earn rewards, you delegate securely from your wallet.

You'll NEVER need to send your #ADA anywhere, whatever you may be promised!

*Please note that the Shelley Testnet rewards calculator is based on what comes out of the Treasury, and doesn't include any Transaction Fees.
Here everyone!

!! ATTENTION TO ALL ADA DELEGATORS !!

Are you currently delegating your ada stake to a stake pool? 💸

If that's a 'YES' for you, then your stake pool might be saturated with the upcoming 'K' parameter network changes. 🧐
Please carefully read the following Twitter thread from IOHK, if you don't want to miss out on potential staking rewards. 👇

Important: https://twitter.com/InputOutputHK/status/1334907565604483072
On December 6th the Cardano network successfully transitioned to its new network parameter 'k = 500'.

Happy K=500 day! 🥳

🎉Great achievement to have Coinfirm's AML Platform integrated with the #Cardano protocol.

This increases the institutional capabilities of Cardano #blockchain and will help achieve mass adoption of #ADA crypto in regulated markets with the use of AML/CFT analytics.
