Seoul, South Korea, December 12th, 2023, Chainwire
OverProtocol, a Layer 1 blockchain focused on democratizing validation, has exciting plans for the next year, including a mainnet launch in the first half. In October, the project successfully completed a closed beta testnet with 15,000 applicants from 127 countries, of whom 1,300 completed all tests. In preparation for the mainnet launch, they have now announced an open beta testnet and an incentive program open to everyone.
Community-Focused Launching Plan
The project will initiate an airdrop through the OverProtocol Community Airdrop Program (OCAP) to build a strong community. The path to the airdrop unfolds through two pivotal quests. The first quest, already active on OverWallet, showcasing OverProtocol’s mobile-centric vision, has attracted significant participation. Over the past six months, more than 4.7 million users have joined, with over one million users actively participating in missions each month. Meanwhile, the second quest invites users to engage with OverProtocol by running validators via OverNode on the Open Beta Testnet.
Open Beta Testnet (OBT)
The Open Beta Testnet is divided into two seasons: OBT Season 1, which runs from December 13th to 22nd, and OBT Season 2, scheduled for February of next year. During the testnet, participants can experience Home Staking by running a node and validator at home through OverNode and also learn about Ethanos, a key feature of OverProtocol. The total scores accumulated from both seasons will be considered when determining the airdrop amount. Everyone can participate in OBT Season 1, but only those with enough points in OverWallet can complete key missions. OBT Season 2 will also have a point requirement, so if you are interested in OverProtocol, download OverWallet and join the OverProtocol community.

Vision of OverProtocol
OverProtocol is a new layer 1 blockchain based on a protocol named ‘Ethanos’ that only considers active accounts valid, enabling full nodes to discard obsolete data and operate with less storage, thus allowing for reduced storage requirements. Superblock, a core contributor to the project, is developing ‘OverNode’, a full-node client that allows anyone to run a full node of OverProtocol and become a validator on their home PCs.
“By allowing anyone to run a validator, individuals have the opportunity to earn $OVER through a process known as Home Staking. This enables them to embrace a new lifestyle, offering new payment options, enhanced credit, and innovative financial opportunities,” Ben, CEO of Superblock, added.
OverProtocol is a layer 1 blockchain network committed to fostering a truly decentralized ecosystem, allowing anyone to serve as a validator. Leveraging ‘Ethanos’, an innovative node optimization technology, it empowers individuals to operate full nodes from their home desktops. Driven by the vision of decentralization, OverProtocol aspires to place the power of a new internet right in your hands.
