Testing Dashboard Overview

This is the home screen of the testing environment. At the top you can see your progress as you follow the steps to complete the testing tasks.
You need to complete 8 steps in total to be eligible for DOP rewards. The steps are listed below the progress section. Once you complete each step, its status will change to Completed, and the next step will become available.
The menu bar on the upper left side includes all the functions available on the Testnet. Click on any menu item to expand it and reveal the available functions. You can always click on Your Testing Progress to return to the testing dashboard.

Complete the tasks

Step 1 — Follow Us on X (formerly Twitter)
The first step is to follow DOP on X.

  1. Click Sign in with X. When the button turns green, click Follow DOP on X.

2. In the popup that appears, select the checkbox to confirm you have followed on X, then click Done.
Steps 2–4 — Claim Testnet tokens
In these preliminary steps, you claim test tokens that will be used in the following steps. In Step 2, Step 3 and Step 4, all you need to do is click the Claim button:

  • In Step 2, you will get 0.05 tokens of SepoliaETH.
  • In Step 3, you will get 1000 tokens of Testnet DOP.
  • In Step 4, you will get Testnet versions of 10 crypto assets, 10,000 tokens of each. These are tokens intended for testing use only, and they have no real value.

In Steps 3 and 4, you might want to add the token contracts to your Metamask so they will be visible in the wallet. Simply click on the Metamask fox icon.

Step 6 — Send Assets
In the Step 6 — Send Assets tile, click on Get Started to go to the Send screen. Then follow the steps below to send encrypted assets to another DOP wallet.

  1. Click the down arrow on the right end of the DOP Account field. A dropdown list opens, displaying any DOP accounts you have created in the current wallet, and also a test account address. You can also click inside the DOP Account field and manually enter an address to which you would like to send assets.
  2. For the purpose of this test, select Test DOP Account.
  3. Click in the Select encrypted token field to display a list of available encrypted assets. The token you have encrypted in the previous step should be available on the list. Click to select it.

  11. When the transaction is completed, a notification will appear to let you know that the assets were successfully decrypted. You can also click on View in Explorer to see the transaction on the Etherscan. The tokens you have decrypted are now visible again on the blockchain and can be transferred to any wallet outside of DOP.
  12. Click Close.

Final Step

The following popup appears:
Share your unique referral link with at least 3 friends, and click Done.
At the bottom of the Step 8 — Invite 3 Friends box, you will now be able to see if 3 of the friends you had invited have joined.

All Done!

Once 3 friends join through your unique link, you will be eligible to receive your DOP reward after the official token launch in early 2024. Your Progress at the top of the screen will change to 100%.
Mind that for each additional person you refer (up to a maximum of 100) who completes all the testnet steps you will receive a 20% bonus. In other words, you can earn up to 2000% more in DOP token rewards!
At the top-right of your dashboard, under Invite & Earn, you can see how many people have joined through your referral link (starting from the 4th person) and completed the testnet, and also the percentage of the bonus rewards you’re entitled to.
If you want, you can use the navigation bar options on the upper left side of the screen to encrypt, send, and decrypt tokens again. However, these actions will not be counted towards any additional rewards.
