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.
It's hard to quantify, but it's not hard to see: in any community, culture is everything. Ours is rooted in respect and openness, curiosity and excellence.
