Gemini 3e Non-Incentivized Testnet Launch
We are excited to announce the launch of Gemini 3e Non-Incentivized Testnet, set for July 5, 2023, at 5 pm UTC.
Gemini 3e will launch as a non-incentivized, test-only environment while the core contributors debug and closely monitor the network. That means it’s important to acknowledge that there could be some bugs, slow sync times, and several breaking changes as we continue to develop and enhance the codebase.
A robust network of farmers will assist the core contributors with rapid issue identification and resolution, thus accelerating our progress to the incentivized phase. The active participation of each farmer in the Gemini 3e Non-Incentivized Testnet is crucial for propelling us toward the Incentivized Testnet stage. Thank you for your patience and support!
Gemini 3e Non-Incentivized Testnet consists of significant upgrades over Gemini 3d, designed to improve the user experience for our farmers. While there are a number of upgrades in this iteration, the primary objective is to test and validate the performance and effectiveness of Dilithium: Subspace v2 consensus when deployed on a large scale. Other major upgrades and enhancements include, but not limited to:
- Improved sync times
- Block propagation speed improvements
- Resolved networking overload/bandwidth issue for certain routers
Recommended Minimum Hardware Setup:
- CPU: 4 Core+
- RAM: Rec. 8 GB+
- SWAP: 4 GB
- Storage: 100 GB+ SSD
On Wednesday, July 5, you can visit Simple CLI (Recommended) | Farm from Anywhere for instructions. There will be breaking changes, so please run the wipe command before jumping on Wednesday.
Gemini 3e Non-Incentivized Testnet Launch Party!
To celebrate another huge milestone, we are throwing a Launch Party! The event will take place in our Discord server at the Gemini 3e launch. It will be an excellent opportunity to engage with our core contributors, learn how to farm on the Subspace Network in real-time, and bootstrap Gemini 3e together.
