GateChain Testnet 3.0 Launch
About GateChain Testnet3.0
Gate.io launched GateChain Testnet 1.0 on September 30th, 2019. GateChain creatively presents a solution for security issues such as loss of private keys and assets being stolen.
After the launch of the Testnet, we have received constructive feedback from users and we have upgraded the network accordingly.
The newly released GateChain Testnet 3.0 is a very important upgrade：
①We redesigned the network module and implemented a new consensus mechanism.
②The performance in the testing environment reaches 2000+ TPS (Transactions per Second) and supports 1000+ validator nodes.
About GateChain Mainnet
GateChain not only has its unique asset security features, it also comes with great network capacity.
For the new underlying architecture and consensus mechanism, we will build a single module and launch it as an independent project：
The new module will be equipped with the one-tap chain issuance feature, which enables other blockchain development teams to utilize GateChain’s technology under the respective open source and intellectual property right related protocols.
We will release GateChain Testnet 4.0 in May 2020, the launch will include bug fixes, performance optimizations. We will also continue to collect feedback and suggestions that facilitate further development and optimization of Testnet 4.0. The GateChain Mainnet 1.0 will be released shortly after Testnet 4.0 around 2020 Q2. During this time, we will launch the individual module mentioned above together with the one-tap chain issuance feature.
