IOHK Blog: Unboxing the Blockchain – the Shelley Testnet Making its Network Debut

About two weeks ago, a team from IOHK, along with Cardano Ambassadors and representatives from the Cardano Foundation, met at a co-working space in London. After a quick presentation, laptops were switched on and a few Rock Pi computers were booted up. An hour later, we had them all connected to a peer-to-peer network of nodes. It was the first instance of the new networked Shelley testnet available for the community to join. Read more about it in the link below!

Cardano Ambassadors in Bulgaria

The Cardano Community is truly something we can be proud of and we will continue to help grow it as best and as organically as possible. The Cardano ecosystem is about steady growth, both as a project as well as the community itself.
Last week’s 2-year anniversary event is one of such results. Let us introduce some of these special community members that have dedicated their time and energy to help make this community better, more involved and exciting. We invited four Ambassadors to the venue and participate in the event, and a fifth one helped organize it (Vasil).
Please check out some of their recaps, pictures and (sometimes exclusive) videos!

(From left to right in the picture are: Marin, Carlos, Vasil (co-organizer), Josh and Kenny)
