New Cardano node, explorer backend, and web API released
Today marks the culmination of considerable effort by the Cardano team: the release of a new Cardano Haskell implementation. This implementation consists of two main components: Cardano Node and Cardano Explorer Backend and Web API
These have been deployed as additional nodes on the Cardano Byron testnet and mainnet. For now, Cardano’s blockchain production remains on the old implementation. The full migration of Cardano nodes to the new implementation will happen after the update to Ouroboros BFT. There is no corresponding wallet release at this time. All existing wallets will continue to work.
