OUT NOW: New Daedalus Shelley Testnet Release! 🎉

IOHK has just released a brand new #Daedalus for the Shelley testnet. Now you can try out new #Shelley Shelley features in a sandboxed environment using test ada - including delegation, stake pools & seeing how real rewards will work on the mainnet later this summer.

Check Darko's Quick explanation video here:

IOHK will release have a full video walkthrough for you later this week, digging into the features in-depth. We'll also be adding new Daedalus testnet functionality incrementally during the Shelley roll out, over the weeks ahead.

Remember, no 'real' ada is involved on the testnet. But please always be vigilant against scammers. Never respond to 'giveaways' and never send your real ada to anyone claiming they are a stake pool. Delegation happens within your own wallet - your ada never goes anywhere.

The new Daedalus wallet (1.2.0-STN1) is now available from the Cardano testnets site; remember, for your own security, only download Daedalus from official IOHK or Cardano sites:
We hope you enjoy trying these features out! More information is available here.

Have fun - and please contact us via the support desk if you spot any bugs or have issues!

To help you better understand the stake pool key metrics, we've also added tooltips with explanations. Here's a video walkthrough from Darko, highlighting the key features:

Darko and Filip will also join us on tomorrow's monthly Cardano show to talk more about the new release and what's next, so be sure to tune in. And remember, download #Daedalus ONLY from the official Daedalus site:

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. 👇

On December 6th the Cardano network successfully transitioned to its new network parameter 'k = 500'.

Happy K=500 day! 🥳
