Hello New York!

Celer Network team is super excited to be part of the New York Blockchain Week for the first time! We got a series of exciting events and fun activities lined up for you!🎉🎉

Celer’s Mainnet Sneak Peek at ETH New York 👀

Celer Network mainnet is coming soon to the public. Though it has only been 7 short months since we launched our first public testnet, Celer Network has pushed the boundaries of layer-2 scaling technology, user-facing product and developer ecosystems. With blockchain mass adoption as goal, Celer Network user counts has grown by 50X to almost 20,000 monthly active users from 88 different countries. Celer Network testnet is processing around 4 million off-chain smart contract transactions on generalized state channel with absolutely ZERO cost. Amazing though the numbers already are, we want to note that this is just one application’s statistics on the still “paper-money” testnet. Like you, we are eager to see the power of layer-2 scaling fully unleashed.

For those of you who don’t want to wait, we invite you to come to ETHNewYork and get the first behind-the-scenes sneak peek of our public mainnet alpha. As an appreciate of your kind help, we will be giving out our limited-edition T-shirts and a lot of secret prizes at our booth. (Just FYI, at ETHDenver, we ran out of T-shirts on the very first day. 👀)

  • Friday night at 10:30–10:55pm: Celer Network SDK: Build fun and interactive dApps @ Andromeda (1st floor).
  • Saturday afternoon at 13:00–13:25: Celer Network: Lessons Learnt Running The Biggest Generalized State Channel Network Testnet @ Andromeda (1st floor).
