Testnet 2.0 and Mainnet launch dates!
IOST is proud to announce and confirm the exact dates for IOST’s final Testnet version 2.0 and official launch of Mainnet version 1.0!
Staying true to our roadmap, with Testnet 2.0 scheduled for Q4 2018 and Mainet scheduled for Q1 2019, we will once again be hitting our ambitious goals and development timeline with these timely releases.
The exact dates of these releases will be as follows:
- Testnet v2.0 ‘ Everest’ — December 20th 2018
- Mainnet v1.0 — February 25th 2019
We have so much planned for the run-up to Mainnet launch, and Testnet v2.0 will be a vital step in that plan. Developers and projects can now prepare for DApp launches on this final testnet version, which will then migrate onto Mainnet in February.
Last week we released the first of our Developer Bounty programs, which coincides with the run-up to Mainnet to make sure we bring in as many developers as possible who are interested in working with and contributing to the IOST ecosystem.
Additionally, over the next several weeks we will be releasing a series of articles giving a complete overview of the IOST network, protocol and ecosystem. The first in this series will be details about IOST’s consensus mechanism and decentralized committee election process — to be released tomorrow!
We are so excited to be drawing closer to these big releases and can’t wait to share everything we have been working on over the last year with the IOST community. We hope you are as excited as we are to start using the IOST network and see this project move from concept to reality!
We really appreciate everyone’s support and contribution to the community and ecosystem over this year and especially to those that provide their continued support across our social channels and communities!
The IOST team.
