The Shelley testnet has made its network debut after several months of developments. The Shelley is working since last week and it has been released to the market for the community to join on September 26.
The information was released by Tim Harrison, Communications Director at IOHK in a blog post on Sept. 26.
Shelley Testnet Released
The Cardano (ADA) community will now be able to enjoy Shelley’s testnet and start getting used to the new solutions provided by the network.
One of the most important things to mention is that this is the first decentralized implementation of the Ouroboros Genesis consensus algorithm. Cardano was launched two years ago and the Ouroboros feature was one of the most commented developments of this crypto network.
