IRIS Betanet is Going to Launch!

Please join us for IRIS genesis

Today, the IRIS Mainnet Launch page is live on www.irisnet.org. IRIS Foundation published the plan for starting IRIS Betanet in the middle of Feb 2019, which will be the first step for mainnet launch.👏👏👏

IRISnet is designed to be the foundation for next generation distributed business applications. It is a BPoS blockchain, built with Cosmos-SDK, that enables cross-chain interoperability through a unified service model. You can find more details about IRISnet here.

Since July 20th 2018, the IRISnet community has been running the Fuxi testnet and has made several major improvements on it. On Nov 26th 2018, On-chain software upgrade was successfully tested by validators. This capability made it possible for IRIS Mainnet to start with PoS essential modules while adding more advanced functions gradually such as IBC and service dispute arbitration, etc through decentralized on-chain governance.

IRIS Betanet, as the first step towards the Mainnet, will be launched after Chinese New Year. Following is a list of the key activities in the next six weeks and more detailed information about the plan as well as Betanet expectations can be found on IRISnet official website.
