To empower the beta, a new ERC-20 token called bDSLA will be issued on the Ethereum test network (Ropsten). Just like their real DSLA counterpart, bDSLA tokens will be used to make guarantee deposits, to purchase guarantees, and to settle DSLA Reward and DSLA Compensation claims.
When DSLA.network and DSLA Protocol launch on the mainnet this year, eligible bDSLA token holders will then be able to convert their bDSLA rewards and compensation into real DSLA tokens.
Whether you plan on providing DSLA guarantees as a Proof-of-Stake Validator, or purchasing DSLA guarantees as a Delegator, you will need bDSLA tokens to use the DSLA.network Ðapp.
The amount of testnet bDSLA tokens you will be able to claim at beta launch is the amount of mainnet DSLA tokens you hold at the time, on a 1:1 basis.
Special conditions may apply to different types of users, please check out the Claim bDSLA tokens section of this guide for more information.
