Shelley Hard Fork Initiated
Charles Hoskinson’s trending tweet is coming at a time that the community is preparing for the hard fork that is expected to fully launch the Cardano community into the Shelley era, scheduled to take place on 29th July 2020.
In a recent live video, Hoskinson stated that over the weekend, his team of developers would be conducting an exhaustive 72-hours burn-in for a necessary quality assessment.
“We have now begun the countdown over the next 5 days to hard fork Cardano from Byron to Shelley. Our las chance to abort will be sometime on Monday, during the weekend the engineers and the QA-team will be conducting an exhaustive 72 hours burn in, to go through all checklists that we have.”
He acknowledged the efforts of all the state pool operators as they fully participated in testing the software to identify and fix bugs on the network.
“From here on out, Cardano is the best cryptocurrency on market when we think about it compared to bitcoin. And as soon as we get native assets and smart contracts, we’re the best cryptocurrency, bar none,” Charles Hoskinson added.
