Welcome back to the Serum Newsletter! We hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season as we head into the New Year! Today we’ll be focusing on on-chain staking progress!

The goal for this beta test is more than finding bugs and making product improvements, the goal is to allow other programs (such as governance and auto-funding of rewards through Serum) to start being built by others, providing feedback to the APIs provided here!

Rewards will be randomly dropped over the next two weeks to provide incentive to people. Nevertheless, expect a beta experience and ask questions on our Discord HERE!

For node leaders, i.e., people who want to aid in operating the DEX by running cranks, documentation can be found here:

MSRM stake is not required for this initial beta deployment.

Please note that all APIs are subject to breaking changes. If you’d like to propose any changes, please post here or make an issue in the relevant repo.
