Great episode. David Esser seems like an impressive asset to have as product manager.


Any timeframe in the video where he speaks about Shelley and the Roadmap?

Have you tried looking at the pinned comment on youtube? A simple cmd/ctrl + F should list out all timestamps with Shelley and roadmap.

I couldn’t get that done. Hmmm

Roadmap end of May or begin of June (I forgot)

Shelley testnet start in June in 3 phases:
Phase 1: self nodes, everyone runs it’s own testnet based on a self generated genesis block
Phase 2: network milestone: unified testnet
Phase 3: incentive milestone: testnet ada staking rewards

Shelley mainnet expected at the end of Q4 2019.
