Geneva, Switzerland, March 29, 2018 – Big news for developers. DCore public testnet is officially up and running. The testnet allows for anyone interested in creating a blockchain dApp, to do so in a safe testing environment on DCore testnet.
To put it simply, the testnet is a deployed blockchain, a clone of the actual DCore technology and platform built specifically for testing purposes. This is great news for all developers and projects who want to use blockchain, but didn’t know how or where to start.
Developers now have an opportunity to test applications without any risk or consequence in case they discover an issue or bug. As one would guess, the dApps built on DCore testnet are just for testing purposes. Actions on the testnet can be performed without using real currency, tester account registration, financial transactions, fees, or payment transfers.
For example, a developer could create a new wallet dApp on DCore testnet but balances or transfers from accounts within that dApp hold no actual value because it is running on the testnet blockchain, not the DCore mainnet. Even things like miner fees are simulated without being attached to value and miner nodes do not need to be run by real, paid miners.
“Me and my team have been working hard to deliver the tools developers need to get active with blockchain and our DCore platform. Testnet is just the start! We are proud to showcase our work and appreciate all feedback. We especially would like to invite all developers to get involved with the development process of DCore. Looking forward to seeing where these future collaborations take us.” said Ronald Filo, Head of Research at DECENT.
DECENT is a non-profit foundation that has developed an open source blockchain ecosystem focused helping businesses adapt to a decentralized future. With their proprietary technology and platform called DCore, DECENT can improve a wide range of real-world applications, especially content distribution networks.
