Tel Aviv, Israel — December 20, 2018 — Orbs, the hybrid blockchain, announced today the launch of Gamma, a local testing environment that enables developers to prepare for the launch of the Orbs production platform. In addition, Orbs will be launching a new command line interface “Gamma-cli” enabling developers to interact with their personal Orbs Blockchain and design partners to access the full testnet. Gamma will create a local blockchain on each machine to allow developers to write and test smart contracts using the Orbs Smart Contract SDK.

The launch of Gamma comes in the build up to the release of the full production layer in early 2019 enabling developers and businesses to begin testing the platform.

“We have seen a tremendous swell of excitement in Orbs that has only grown as we approach the production launch in 2019,” said Daniel Peled, Co-Founder of Orbs. “Our focus remains on creating the optimal platform for building large scale applications and to help improve this process, we wanted to give partners and developers the time they need to test and learn on our system. By leveraging the period ahead of the launch to work closely with partners and developers, we can help them gain the maximum benefit from being among the early adopters of Orbs.”

Earlier this month, Orbs released the company’s product roadmap which highlighted several major updates to the project’s readiness. With the release of Gamma and further testing updates, the company is gearing up to the full launch of a production ready platform in early 2019. The period will be utilized to work closely with partners and developers to help them optimize their onboarding process ahead of the launch.
