Hoskinson Talks All About Byron Reboot Following Cardano’s OBFT Hard Fork

  • Cardano has seen some bullish action with several developments underway on the ecosystem.
  • Charles Hoskinson revealed that the Byron reboot will see launch next month.

Ever since the start of this year, Cardano has seen some bullish action with several developments underway on the ecosystem. Last week, we saw the launch of the OBFT hard fork which was integrated smoothly without any hic-ups.

But there is still more to do for the network as this hard fork was just a stepping stone to the next era for the network, Shelley. This will see full decentralisation on the network.

But speaking in a recent update, the CEO and co-founder of IOHK, Charles Hoskinson revealed that the Byron reboot will see launch next month. 

He further went on to say:

“The Byron reboot release is very significant and we are still sizing up exactly everything that is going to be in it. So we are finishing up the sprint for this month and the next sprint will be the polishing and finishing the sprint for the Byron reboot. So with any luck, mid-March is when we will expect to see that.”

This is said to be the most significant release for the network, especially when you think about the retail side. The Byron Reboot is “100% re-written code, security audited, built with formal methods and it’s a 100% built in-house.”

The CEO has further said:

“In March the Byron reboot will launch. We hope to get the Shelley testnet up and running in March or April depending on how each sprint works. We are very close to getting a band for the release of the Shelley mainnet. That band gives us a two-month time frame for the release of the Shelley mainnet. We will have greater clarity by the end of March as to a two to a four-week window when the Shelley launch will occur.”

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
