If you’re running a block explorer, wallet, exchange, validator, or any other service (eg. custody provider) that depends upon the Cosmos Hub or Cosmos ecosystem, you’ll want to pay attention, because this upgrade will involve substantial changes.
Help us to get the word out–this is a major leap for the Cosmos Network and we want everyone on board 🚀Testnet
We've launched the first public alpha testnet for the Stargate Upgrade on Tuesday August 25th.
This testnet is intended for:Testing wallets, exchanges and block explorers against the legacy Amino REST interface Giving node operators and validators an opportunity to test their integrations against a work in progress version Playing with new Stargate features including IBC but real testing of IBC will wait on Akash updating the Relayer and possibly a future testnet.
We anticpate restarting this testnet with future integration targets. Once we have a migration script, we will launch a testnet with a simulated upgrade from cosmoshub-3.
Our validator node for a persistent peer is available at[email protected]:26656
