QuarkChain QKC: Testnet Launch
After six months of design, development, and testing, the QuarkChain Testnet 1.0 is officially launching today (July 7th, 2018). QuarkChain’s promise of high throughput, decentralization, security, and scalability are all demonstrated in this testnet.
A testnet is an alternative cryptocurrency blockchain, to be used for testing. Testnet coins are separate and distinct from real coins, and are not supposed to have any value. This allows application developers to experiment without resorting to using real coins and not worrying about the integrity and security of the mainnet.
