ArDrive Inferno double rewards
Inferno was designed to reward users with ArDrive tokens (ↁ) for uploading data through the ArDrive suite of apps. The total number of tokens to be distributed was set at ↁ50,000. Upload stats are collected for the whole week, and rewards are sent out on the weekends. Inferno began in May 2022 and concludes on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at 11:59 PM EST.
So, to go out with a bang, during the last five weeks of Inferno, 2,000 ArDrive tokens will be awarded per week to the top 50 uploaders who qualify. Each week has a minimum amount that needs to be uploaded in order to ensure ArDrive tokens are not being rewarded to users who upload a very small amount of data. However, every person who uploads the minimum has a chance to get the rewards if they are in the Top 50 uploaders.
The minimum amount that users need to upload to qualify for the token distribution is 100 MB. Essentially, up to 50 unique wallets that upload 100 MB for the week will receive the tokens. And all partial amounts are rounded up. The tokens are distributed on Sunday evenings at 10:00 PM EST. Upload data is collected from Sunday 12:00 am EST to Saturday 11:59 PM EST.
But wait, there’s more!
