Cardano Foundation is all set to release Shelley’s Incentivized Testnet on 9 December. This will be a totally new software based on Jormungandr version 8. Cardano’s parent company, IOHK, had confirmed a successful snapshot for the incentivized testnet on 29 November at epoch 159, slot 6886. Prior to the scheduled snapshot, the CEO of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson, had asked users to move their ADA token to either a Daedalus or a Yoroi wallet.
Going forward, Hoskinson revealed an upcoming “data dump” on 5 December. In his latest AMA session, the CEO elaborated,
”.. so next week, December 5th, I believe we are going to have a big data dump and basically that’s going to be all the things you need to know to be able to effectively use the testnet as well as the economic parameters.”
He further briefed the community by stating that the team is working towards making content accessible, while also localizing them in different local languages. Other releases lined up for the Cardano ecosystem include the explorer and a stake pool dashboard for which the team will have a complete list of all of the releases that are coming out on 5 December.
On the Haskell side, it was previously reported that the Foundation had earlier revealed pushing Haskell Cardano 1.0 to the relays. Commenting on the same, the CEO added that the developers had replaced the relay nodes and will be able to replace the core nodes as soon as the OBFT hard fork is executed. A date has not been set for it since it will require extensive work in terms of building infrastructure for the exchanges.
