Euphoria Staging Network has been released!
As of April, Aura Network has launched 2 main testing environments, which are Serenity testnet and Halo testnet. These two testnets have completed their job well as an ideal environment for developers to test their dApps and practice running a full node.
To gather momentum for the remarkable event of the Mainnet launch in September, Aura decided to open a close resemblance to the production mainnet environment. This is where our staging network, named Euphoria, is officially created.
Similar to the staging environment concept in traditional software development, Euphoria is the near exact replica of Aura Mainnet. This means we will try our best to bootstrap external validators, set up vesting, voting and operate the Euphoria bootstrap community as closely as we will do on Aura Mainnet in the future.
During the last week of June, Aura Network has selected 55 validators to evaluate the security and decentralization aspects of the product. As tokens used in Euphoria are not Aura mainnet tokens, these validators are encouraged to join Euphoria through the Incentivized Validor Program (IVP). This is a program tailored for Euphoria validators, aiming to compensate them for the time and resources they spend on the network.
