Stellar Testnet Pushed Back to February 27
Stellar Org took to Twitter to share that Testnet Reset that was scheduled for January 30, 2019, has been now pushed back to late February.
The announcement made by Johnny Goodnow, Director of Development Engagement at Stellar Development Foundation reads, “We’ve decided to push back our testnet reset to February 27th, 2019 in order to allow us more time to build in warnings to the reset date within Stellar’s developer tools (Horizon, Friendbot, etc.). We’ll continue to remind developers as we get closer to the date, and we’ll post the corresponding Github issues tracking these enhancements here for those interested.”
Stellar enthusiasts replied in appreciation as one did here,
“I like that you were communicative about this pushback. It really bolsters confidence when communication happens such as this instance.”
And another one,
“Been a fan of Steller since 2017 and been loading up at every price below .20 cent great project.”
However, other crypto fans weren’t appreciative and an XRP enthusiast took a shot with, “Stellar is still only running Testnets??” While another one, “It’s okay, there’s plenty going on over at TRON.”
At the time of writing, Stellar has been trading at $0.0846 with 24-hours loss of 3.45 percent, incurring biggest losses among the top cryptos.
