F&F testnet runs 'astonishing' well
It was launched last Monday and is currently being tested by 19 stake pool operators in a kind of “alpha” for the Shelley mainnet. The Friends & Family test network is set to grow by a further 38 stake pools, with each current member recruiting and training two new members, IOHK announced:Yesterday the second week of the Friends & Family testnet began, with Input Output Hong Kong (IOHK) describing on the day before yesterday that it is well underway thanks to the hard work of the “pioneers”, the first stake pool operators. Cardanians.io wrote that the stability and speed of blockchain synchronization through the Haskell node is “astonishing” good.
This week will focus on the basics of a pool setup and operation, according to IOHK. With regard to the launch date, there is still no concrete date. The only thing that seems certain is that the launch will take place in 2020.
Yesterday IOHK announced the release of the new Cardano Explorer 1.0.0. It is a completely redesigned application based on the Byron reboot infrastructure and Haskell code. The new Cardano explorer represents a significant advance over the original, which was released in 2017 with the launch of the Cardano mainnet.
