The Algorand team is excited to announce that we’re opening our TestNet to the public at large. Our community continues to grow and influence the future of blockchain and we’re inviting you — businesses, developers, and users — to engage with our platform.
Opening up our TestNet is a major milestone for our team as we approach the launch of our MainNet and we hope you’ll be part of the journey as we learn and grow.
Our TestNet has a strong core foundation and we’re continuing to work on improving performance, scale and speed every day. To that end, we’re inviting businesses, developers, and users to start building on the Algorand blockchain in hopes that you will share your feedback with us so we can continue to evolve our platform to be at the forefront of global blockchain technology. Opening the TestNet more widely also allows us to identify features that our ecosystem wants, which will help influence what our future roadmap looks like in a positive way.
We’re also excited to let you know that we’ve open sourced all of our SDKs, so developers can continue to iterate and make improvements. This is part of our overall mission to enable our ecosystem to collaborate and innovate, which is why Algorand’s core protocol will also be open sourced in the near future — stay tuned.
We’re really excited about opening up our TestNet, but we’re just getting started. There’s a lot more innovation to come as we prepare to launch MainNet in the near future.
As the Algorand team works on delivering that innovation and growing the company, we want you — our community members — to be an integral part of our platform. Here’s how you can get involved.
- Start by learning what’s possible with Algorand and the platform’s basic functionality.
- Visit the Algorand developer site to get started and access our official documentation.
- Join the Algorand discourse community to meet other community members and be a part of the conversation.
- Participate by building new products, helping improve the protocol, creating apps that leverage the power of blockchain, and influencing the Algorand roadmap.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you as you get involved with TestNet. Stay tuned for more updates on the development of our platform, MainNet updates, and our company via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
