The Radix Olympia Betanet is now live. Welcome!
In the run-up to the launch of the Olympia Betanet on April 28, we have put together a short FAQ addressing common questions we have seen from the community. In the main, the questions cover:
Just over a week ago we announced our April 28 launch of the Radix betanet, a temporary test network ahead of the Olympia mainnet launch. We also launched our Validator Community Proposal Program for those who wish to run one of the 100 validator nodes on betanet.We wanted to provide a quick update on betanet, particular for those interested in validator node-running.
The Radix DLT team is pleased to announce that we will be launching our “betanet” network on April 28th, 2021. This will mark the end of our “drop 3” internal milestone (more on our drops here), and the completion of the bulk of core Radix development intended for the first public network release by end of Q2.
Radix give an insight into how the Radix network operates, including the desktop wallet and the command line interface to manage validators.
The Radix public network roadmap is split into a sequence of major releases each named after a city that bore one of the wonders of the ancient world.
DeFI made history, seeing the year out with US$15.442 BN in TLV. 2020 was also incredibly busy for Radix - take a look at our highlights.
Radix Key Milestones and Deliverables - Cerberus consensus & DeFi whitepapers; RPN Drop 1; partnership with University California Davis.
The Cerberus Whitepaper describes Radix's breakthrough multi-shard consensus protocol that enables unprecedented DLT scalability.
Radix partner University of California Davis to formally analyze and prove the security and scalability of Cerberus’ consensus design.
DeFi needs to be built on a protocol that enables fast, secure development of commercial applications while maintaining composability.
The Radix DeFi Whitepaper explains how each of the four Radix platform technologies work to create the first truly layer-1 protocol for DeFi.
We're excited to provide an update on our RPN-1 Network, including a video demonstration of a working drop-1 network
We're delighted to release our new consensus whitepaper - Cerberus. Cerberus creates a multi-lane superhighway, capable of processing massive numbers of transactions in parallel. Through the Cerberus consensus protocol, we are tackling one of the most pressing issues facing the blockchain industry, that of scalability.
We've decided to move to open source - as the only way moving forward to keep Radix transparent, anti-fragile and a public good.
