Blockchain platform Ardor’s testnet goes live
Ardor, open-source multiple blockchain systems created by the Nxt development team, announced that its testnet is now live for everyone.
The launch of the testnet allows users to test the various features of Ardor so that the developers can fine-tune the blockchain platform for the mainnet launch in the third quarter of this year, the website stated.
Ardor uses a proof of stake consensus system that is similar to Nxt. Ardor is designed by Jelurida BV developers and has high expectations within blockchain industry as it solves various issues that are currently affecting the sector. Also, Ardor incorporates a novel multiple blockchain architectures that allow users to form own and customized subsidiary blockchains that are secured by the main chain, IBTimes reported.
“Blockchain technology is increasingly entering the mainstream consciousness. The developers at Jelurida BV have created a platform that makes blockchain technology more accessible and delivers scalable solutions for retail and institutional participants. Its potential applications extend to a number of industries burdened with legacy issues and antiquated transaction processing systems,” Travin Keith, a board member at the Nxt Foundation, said.
The testnet is available for Linux and Windows users and when using the Ardor testnet, users must remember not to use their Nxt passphrase for security reasons.
