Shardeum Sphinx has had a phenomenal response from the community! We’ve seen thousands of nodes being run by all of YOU! Thank you for being part of Shardeum and helping us build a truly decentralized Layer 1 Blockchain.
Based on all the bugs and feedback received, the core dev team has been hard at work to resolve bugs and bring new enhancements to Sphinx.
Very soon we will release Sphinx 1.1.3 which includes stability fixes that will help make the network much more stable.
Testing 1.1.3 further will help us refine the network and increase the stability.
In parallel, we are also preparing for Sphinx 1.1.4 which will have further fixes for network stability.
Something to take note – The purpose of running Sphinx is to ensure we can test and fix issues as they occur. This testing is very important for our journey to the mainnet.
Don’t be surprised when bugs are found. Bugs are expected at this stage of the process, that’s how software development progresses.
Shardeum Development Steps:
– Code is built
– Code is tested at the build level by core devs
– Code is deployed to community for further testing
– New bugs are found by community
– Community reports the bugs
– Core devs work on solving these bugs
– New bugs are fixed and process repeats
Through this extensive build -> test -> build process we make the Shardeum network stable, robust and ready for prime time 💪
Once the network achieves stability, we then have to work on onboarding all the DApps to Sphinx. As new DApps onboard, all of us have to try these DApps and further test the stability of the Shardeum network.
What you’re experiencing now is how a brand new scalable blockchain is built from the ground up.
Congrats, you’re part of the early community that is helping build Shardeum. We’re creating history together. Opportunities like these don’t come often, I’m glad we’re all part of this together 🚀🚀🚀
