I went to see how the ITN has been doing and have discovered that no one seems to be running a node. Not even IOHK, Emurgo, or the Cardano Foundation.
The CEO of IOHK has been focused far too much on ETC which has lead to the neglect of the TestNet.
We all understand that Cardano must be interoperable so it makes sense to reach out to other blockchains do the fact that there is not a single person focused on the Canary network AKA the TestNet is appalling.
No Ambassador, or any community member has been focused on the state of the ITN. Without the TestNet Cardano development will be how it always has been. Frustratingly slow.
Life is too short.
I have bought a Rock Pi and will begin to bring the TestNet back from the dead.
Honestly Charles it is one thing to work with a project it is another thing to completely obsess with a project that has had no development nor drive to progress.
ETC is like your fist kid. We get it. Do this kid is a fool who refuses to take into account anything you propose.
You will have to fork ETC due to their foolishness.
There have been numerous blockchain projects that have emulated the Cardano ITN and at times they seem like they are copy and paste projects.
The Cardano ITN is an excellent tool that will bring DAPPS to market in a faster and safer way by testing them out first.
All DAPP developers need to see if there are any errors in the code.
I hope that this has inspired some community members to join me in giving life once again to the ITN.
All the operators are chasing profits which is understandable, but we also must focus on rapid development and deployment of DAPPS.
Join me and together we will bring forth the revolution!
Viva le filet de test incité!
