Mina rewards community members for contributing to Testnet with Testnet Points, making them stronger applicants for the Genesis Program.
Testnet Points are designed solely to track contributions to the Testnet and are non-transferable. Testnet Points have no cash or monetary value and are not redeemable for any cryptocurrency or digital assets. We may amend or eliminate Testnet Points at any time.
My measure of a project isn't the quality of the tech. It’s the quality of the community. I wouldn't have been able to spin my node up if it weren't for the insanely great members that helped me. And that's something special.”

It's hard to quantify, but it's not hard to see: in any community, culture is everything. It's the values that drive us. It's how we see the world and how we show up. Culture is who we are and becomes what we create.
What Unites Us
Above all, we respect each other. That's why we stand for equality and fairness. Why we're committed to decentralization. And why we strive to always be inclusive and accessible.
It's our obsession to understand and solve. Our attraction to big questions and impossible problems. Our love of collaboration and exploration. It's our imagination, at work.
We demand the best of ourselves. Elegant solutions. Symphonic systems. Technical beauty. We're committed to creating tech people can depend on. We enjoy the process and deliver results.
We're all about being there for our community. Empowering people with helpful information. Sharing where we are. Owning our mistakes. And serving our vision with humility.
