Taraxa TARA: Incentivized Testnet Launch
Welcome to Californicum (named after taraxacum californicum, a dandelion native to California), Taraxa’s first incentivized testnet!After months of intense development, testing, and help from a group of highly committed community members, the Taraxa testnet is ready for a larger audience.Californicum helps pave the way for Taraxa’s mainnet launch by introducing a more heterogenous operating environment to help rigorously test the network for security and stability.
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.
