RON Staking is LIVE on Saigon Testnet!
Stake your Testnet RON with one of 16 new validators before DPoS goes live
Staking is live on Ronin’s Saigon Testnet.
Testnet stakers can stake their RON to these validators as a dress-rehearsal for the upcoming Ronin DPOS migration.
This allows us to battle-test Ronin in preparation for its migration to DPoS.
We're ecstatic to announce the arrival of 16 brand new validators to Ronin's Saigon Testnet! Our Saigon delegators can now delegate their RON to these validators and partake in a dress-rehearsal for the upcoming Ronin DPOS migration.
This rehearsal is crucial for collecting vital feedback for the Validator Portal and Ronin Documentation.
Meet the validators
On Ronin, there are Standard Validators and Governing Validators. Standard Validators participate in block production and ensure that the bridge is always operational. Governing Validators act as Standard Validators with the additional responsibility of making decisions that shape the future of the network. On Saigon Testnet, we’re pleased to have QU3ST, YGG, DappRadar, Stable Node, BLRD, and Alphalab Capital as Governing Validators.
Ronin’s groundbreaking migration to DPoS is approaching fast, and we’re proud to see our community rally around this historic moment. Thank you to our sixteen new Saigon Testnet validators BigYak Axie Club, Paolo Diomede and Graphtronauts, The Lunacian Wizard, Web3addicted, SuraGaming, Ramanode, BLRD, monica, FirstStudio, Razor, DBS DAO, AlphaLab Capital, Airdrop Sultan ID, Battle Bears, My Cointainer, and the Mystic Ronin Node Group for embarking on this journey with us.
Here are a few words from some of the trailblazing new Testnet validators battle-testing Ronin before the big day.
As we take our place as a validator on the Ronin network, our hearts swell with pride. We are a community of Axie IP fanatics, bound by our passion for web3 ownership and a commitment to protect not just our own Axie family, but all future communities on the network.

The BYAC can't wait to see what we can achieve together.
