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).
