How to Earn XP on Initia

As part of Initia's incentivized public testnet, users can earn XP and build-a-Jennie by acquiring testnet tokens, buying Initia usernames, swapping tokens, staking INIT, and claiming rewards. Users can also earn more XP from bonus tasks by sending INIT to different chains. 


Key Takeaways

  • Initia is a Cosmos-based network that is creating interconnected blockchains through its infrastructure that combines Layer 1 and Layer 2 technology. 

  • Founded by former Terra developers, Initia is backed by Binance Labs and successfully raised $7.5 million in a seed round co-led by Delphi Ventures and Hack VC

  • Users can now interact with the Initia incentivized public testnet for an eight week campaign to earn XP and feed their Jennie.


Potential Initia Airdrop

Initia is a network in the Cosmos ecosystem that aims to create scalable and interconnected blockchains by combining Layer 1 (L1) technology with application-specific Layer 2 (L2) infrastructure. It is designed to simplify the process that developers go through when launching blockchains applications as L2s while offering features including native stablecoins and multi-chain bridging. 

The project’s vision is inspired by the Apple design philosophy whereby developers may use different frameworks to build their app while still having access to the same native features. For example, developers can launch apps in the Apple App Store with access to ApplePay, FaceID, and more. Initia is introducing this into its platform by combining a powerful and flexible tech stack with features like InitiaScan, Initia Wallet, and Bridget.

Initia’s architecture removes the complexities from the usual modular and multi-chain systems to make it easier for developers to create scalable and sovereign blockchain systems. Some of the key features of Initia include support for the creation of native stablecoins, enabling cross-chain interactions, using optimistic rollup technology, and providing native liquidity.

Founded by former Terra and Cosmos developers, Zon and Stan Liu, Initia is backed by Binance Labs and successfully raised $7.5 million in a seed round in February 2024. The funding round was co-led by Delphi Ventures and Hack VC with participation from Nascent, Figment Capital, Big Brain, A.Capital, and various angel investors.

Initia has launched an eight week incentivized public testnet for users to get familiar with the platform. This includes interacting with features like swapping, staking, and buying an Initia username. Teams of applications can also use it as an opportunity to develop, iterate, and test their products. Given the testnet’s limited time period, now is a great opportunity to dive into Initia!

Do note that while Initia has confirmed a token launch, there is no official announcement regarding a token airdrop and no guarantees that participating in the Initia incentivized public testnet will result in a future token airdrop.

Step 1: Get the Initia Wallet (Optional)

This step is optional because you can also connect other Cosmos compatible wallets directly to Initia.

Head to https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/initia-wallet/ffbceckpkpbcmgiaehlloocglmijnpmp?pli=1 to download the Initia Wallet extension on Chrome. Then, you can choose to create a new account, or import an existing wallet using its recovery phrase or private key. In this guide, we will be creating a new account. 

Create Initia Wallet

Set your password and write down the recovery phrase in a safe place. We recommend that it is through an offline method such as written in a book that is kept away from potential damage.

Step 2: Get Tokens

Once your account is created, Get testnet tokens either through the wallet or directly at https://faucet.testnet.initia.xyz/

Before receiving the tokens, you will need to verify proof of humanity through Gitcoin Passport. First, connect an Ethereum wallet to the faucet.

It may also take a while to see the testnet tokens appear in your wallet.
