Rules and Tasks

Welcome to the Stegos $150,000 Bounty and Hackathon! To celebrate our final testnet release before the upcoming Stegos IEO and mainnet release, we’re offering a $150,000 bounty program to help spread the word about Stegos and collect feedback on our app and blockchain. The bounty program will run in two parts, each with a prize pool of $75,000 in STG coins. The two halves of the bounty program will run simultaneously, and you can take part in both. »

Tutorial 4: Staking

Type commands and press enter to perform actions. Type help to see the list of available commands. To stake, switch to the account registered with the bounty and type stake [amount].
