Bytecoin along with its Bytecoin network will become available for users to test them out via the public testnet. The release is scheduled for July 10. The development team states that 'big plans' are kept for the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2018.

After the release of the stable API, it seems the progress was stalled for a bit: according to the blog post, the hard fork procedure is delayed as Bytecoin Network suffered from severe lags on May 8–10 and the dev team is trying to make the hard fork more secure and stable. With the public testnet, the Bytecoin community will be able to see the real life operation of the 'hard-forked' platform. Moreover, P2P protocol won't have to undergo any additional update process once the hard fork is complete.

It’s very important for us to know your thoughts and ideas about the new releases as that will be act as a direct bridge between the community and the development team.

 

Yours truly, Jenny and the Dev Team
