    An Update of the TestNet Incentive Program

    [Rewards Policy] The TestNet Incentive Plan has been updated. The SBP reward of 30 million VITE tokens per year will be divided into two parts. 50% of rewards will be based on the number of blocks created, another 50% rewards will be based on the number of votes received. In addition to the top 25 SBPs, the following 75 candidate nodes may also receive rewards under this update. The Vite SBP Node Operation Guide has also been launched.
