If you participated in the Incentivized Testnet (ITN) and earned rewards by running a stake pool or delegating your stake, you can now redeem your rewards as ada on the Cardano mainnet.
Daedalus Mainnet has a “Redeem Incentivized Testnet rewards” feature which allows the redemption of ITN rewards to a Shelley wallet.
To redeem your ITN rewards in the latest version of Daedalus, you must have the following:
- The 15-word ITN wallet recovery phrase (from the Daedalus Rewards wallet that contains the rewards.)
- A Shelley wallet with enough funds to pay the transaction fees.
NOTE: You can not redeem your ada if you lost your 15-word ITN wallet recovery phrase, even you can access to your rewards balance from your ITN wallet.
