Phase 2: Public Testnet (Completed)

BitCanna’s testnet program contains 3 phases: internal, invitational (incentivized) and public.

We’re happy to share that we have successfully concluded the invitational (incentivized) testnet, and as a result, we’d like to introduce the next, and final step before our mainnet launch: the public (non-incentivized) testnet.

To stay up to date with general updates regarding the public testnet, we highly recommend subscribing to our social channels and our newsletter. If you’d like to join the public testnet, simply join our Discord server (public-testnet channel).

Public Testnet Goals

πŸ›‘οΈ Secure the network Increase the amount of delegators on our network. Learn how to choose the right validator to secure the BitCanna blockchain.

πŸ“— Educate and prepare delegators & validators Teach our community about the new staking mechanism in our Cosmos-based BitCanna network

🌻 Expand the community Surround ourselves with a large and diverse group of people.

Public Testnet Details

πŸ“ The public testnet will have unlimited spots.
