According to Cardano founder, Charles Hoskinson, the Cardano community will soon have a chance to learn how to use the upcoming testnet from a data dump. The current schedule will see data dump on December 5th, while the new Shelley’s Incentivized Testnet will come four days later, on December 9th.
Cardano’s new testnet will arrive after a long time of development, and the project’s community appears to be quite excited about it. The testnet will be entirely new software, which was built on top of Jormungandr version 8.
Cardano’s parent firm, IOHK, delivered a successful snapshot of the testnet only yesterday. The confirmation came just after Hoskinson asked the community to transfer their ADA coins to one of the two Cardano wallets, Yoroi or Daedalus.
Hoskinson announced the data dump in his recent AMA session, posted on YouTube.
According to him, the data dump will be rather big, and it will provide users with all they need to know in order to use the testnet.
Furthermore, he revealed that the developers are currently working on making content accessible, as well as making it available in different languages.
More work ahead, but Cardano is ready to deliver
Cardano’s ecosystem appears to be heading towards a number of new releases apart from the testnet. For example, the project will soon receive a stake pool dashboard, as well as a brand new explorer. Developers will allegedly release a complete list of what is to come in the data dump, scheduled to arrive in five days.
Hoskinson also mentioned Haskell Cardano 1.0, stating that the Foundation pushed it to the relays and that the developers already successfully replaced the relay nodes. The core nodes are still waiting for a replacement, however, but that will come as well after the OBFT hard fork.
The CEO did not reveal an exact date, and it is likely that one doesn’t even exist as of yet, as the team still has a lot of work ahead.
