What makes Shelley so important?
Shelley is a phase in the Cardano roadmap when the platform should be completely decentralized. Independent pool validators receive incentives to participate in the proof-of-stake system (PoS). The update also introduces delegation where ADA holders can delegate their tokens to a staking pool and collect rewardsThe public test network is following the launch of the Incentivated Testnet (ITN), which took place in November 2019. Shelley will cause the Mainnet to go live on July 29th. Holders who did not join the ITN last November will have to wait until the Mainnet launch to transfer Cardano coins and receive rewards.
