6 min readJan 10, 2022


Dear Aresians, test network Gladios node deployment( second phase) will be open for the public this week. This testing phase includes claiming test coins, deploying nodes, extracting data sources, running validator nodes etc. processes.


Participants would be given a certain period to accomplish all the processes. While you successfully deploy validator nodes and run for 24 hours, you will be entitled to the second phase reward.

Reward Rules

In the given time, we would make statistics about the running endurance of each node according to the background data. Nodes are required to be 24 hours operated. Node running is only supported by cloud servers so far.
The statistic will be published at a particular time. Validator node rewards will last for successive ten days( two weeks), 200ARES/per day will be rewarded per node. Specific punishments pertained for connection failure due to electricity disconnection or malpractice.

Task 1:Deploy nodes (reward:100 ARES/perday reward)
Task 2:Deploy nodes+be a candıdate for valıdator nodes(reward:200 ARES/perday )

Please ensure that you are in our telegram node mining group (Ares Protocol Node Miner) for easier access to inform you about the reward distribution and related node operating information.
