I was forwarded these questions from the community and wanted to provide some transparency.
Yes snapshot is coming but does anyone know what is happening right now?
We don’t know. A V-Team composed of migration committee members was put together January 2nd to decide on this.
When the announcement will be?
When the V-Team is ready.
How much time will there we between snapshot and launch or between announcement and snapshot?
The V-team is also looking at this.
Yes we/they are testing, but we do not see any updates anywhere, and the promised bug fix and reboot of the testnet is nowhere to be found or info of it.
A critical bug caused a network stall on January 12th. Due to the severity, it is RC-resetting and requires a restart of testnet. A fix was committed on January 15th. The fix has not yet been deployed anywhere. In general, there needs to be a better plan for pushing both critical and non-critical updates to testnet.
- Independent security audit is expected to be completed by mid February.
- For confidence, testnet must run without any critical issues for 2 months but preferably 3 months.
- There needs to be some sustained testing with 1000 nodes because there has been minimal large network testing.
- There should be some load testing on the public net in order to better determine minimum system requirements for a node, especially when the network is running at max TPS.
If any additional critical issues are identified, they’ll likely be RC-resetting and push out the public net release date. Non-critical issues can be fixed without requiring a testnet restart.
Thank you for your questions!
