Testnet1 released


Hi all,

Just a quick note to announce that testnet1 is out! It's still at the build-it-yourself stage and has a lot of known (and likely unknown) issues. But it will allow us to start testing the existing codebase in a live environment.

To get started, yeastplume has updated the build guide, just make sure you build the source from the milestone/testnet1 branch:


As I'm sure there will be issues, make sure to report them with as many details as possible on Github, including logs (grin.log). We won't be able to send any transaction before about 12:30pm UTC as it takes 1000 blocks for block rewards to become spendable. At which point I will make fake grins rain on everyone who wants 😀

To everyone involved: congratulations and thank you for your hard work!
