The countdown to the launch of Cardano’s Mainnet ‘Shelley’ appears to be imminent with the blockchain platform increasing its preparation for the long-awaited launch.
A picture of the selfnode was shared on Twitter by a crypto enthusiast with the username Adataimment. He revealed that Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson posted the pic on Telegram and hinted that the selfnode test could launch on the 17th of June.
The selfnode testnet would be released to a select pool of users to run local nodes and find bugs within the testnet. If all goes according to plan there would be a testnet launch which would integrate all nodes connected together to simulate the decentralised stake pool.
After further testing and certification from Cardano, the stake pool would go live which would bring about the launch of “Shelley Mainnet.
It is understood that the Cardano team have put a lot of effort into achieving this milestone. The blockchain intends to launch its Mainnet this year after several delays.
