After two more months of testing and hardening the Coda protocol, we’ve arrived at the end of Testnet Phase 2. The goal of Phase 2 was to ensure that these features would be durable — that they would last on longer testnets, and snowball into an increasingly viable mainnet release candidate. See below for more detail on how Phase 2 progressed.
Coda’s Testnet Beta Phase 2 is concluded! Release 2.4 ‘Rising-Phoenix’ made a great, stable ending of Phase 2. At the time of writing, the block height reached almost 4000 and it was capable of handling the activity peaks during Magic Window hours, where testnet users were loading the network with transactions.
Almost four months ago, Coda’s Testnet Beta Phase 1 was launched. Today, we’ve arrived at Testnet Release 2.4, named ‘Rising-Phoenix’. This release is the result of many testing and moments, where we saw our hopes diminish, rise again and reach higher peaks.
Testnet Beta Phase 2.2 was a busy period, marked by a lot of tinkering and breaking. The community rose up to the challenge to increase the transaction throughput during 'Magic Window' hours, and a new bug soon came to the surface, which the team can now investigate.
Phase 2 of Coda's Public Testnet Beta kicked off with a *lot* of interest in the staking challenge. 70 people signed up to stake on the new release and about 50 people ran a testnet node. Together, the community was going strong and racked up almost 100k testnet points* on the new Phase 2.
Coda Protocol's Phase 1 of the public Testnet Beta has concluded! We had 8 successful weeks of testnet on a 1-week release schedule. The technical advancement that was made would not have been possible without the participation of enthusiastic members in the community.
It has been 8 weeks since Coda Protocol's Public Testnet Beta was launched. Last week's testing provided us with interesting findings in the protocol - read on to see how a bug (!) saved the day.
We’ve arrived at the 8th week since Testnet [Beta] was launched. Last week, we saw about 40 testnet users participating in the ‘Grab Bag’ challenges and members becoming leaders in the growing community.
We’ve hit an important public Testnet Beta milestone this week — 100 active members who racked up over 200,000 testnet points!
Week 5 was an opportunity to retrospect on the state of the network over the past month and reflect on what could be improved to ensure a better experience for node operators.
Today, we've arrived at the fifth week since Coda's first public testnet [BETA] was released. It has been incredibly fun to dive in with the core group of our community evangelists. While stress-testing the network, testing main parts of the core protocol, staking, and producing blocks, unexpected situations arised and the community graciously embraced these surprises.
