Will Shelley still be launched in Q1?


#1

couldn’t find any info anymore, any idea?


#2

No exact dates given, but Charles did explain the necessary steps involved before Shelley is released in his latest release: 23.1.19 - Charles Hoskinson Live Video on Stakepool Taskforce and Staking


#3

I’d be very surprised if staking in any form would be live on the main net before 31st March. But that’s just my opinion.


#4

given that we’re about to end the first of the three months of Q1, let’s hope…


#5

We have to realize that there is a difference between decentralization and staking. I think we will start the transition into decentralized network in Q1 but staking will come after that, maybe when the network is proven to work as designed.


#6

So ppl running stakepool(nodes) without rewards at the beginning?

Is that what you mean?:face_with_raised_eyebrow::face_with_raised_eyebrow::face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Yes, but that’s just my expectation judging by how CH described the process. I may have gotten it completely wrong, but I think decentralization (approving blocks) and delegated staking are technically two different problems and might go live at different time frames.
