Celer Network is thrilled to announce today the launch and upgrade of Celer’s public testnet 2.0, Sirius, from the debut version Centauri Testnet, and Celer’s layer-2 technology-driven dApp gateway mobile application from the previous cWallet.

Three months ago, we lighted up the Centauri testnet, the first-ever launched with the cutting-edge off-chain smart contract scaling capability. With Centauri, we bring ZERO-fee smart contract transactions and 10,000X transaction latency reduction to Ethereum. The amazing user statistics shown below speaks for the success of Centauri testnet.
