Shelley is close to launch, according IOHK things are looking pretty good. IOHK is pretty confident that they are going to make the deadline for Shelley.
Read about the news above, in following update article of IOHK https://forum.cardano.org/t/here-s-a-brief-shelleysaturday-update/36382
MC4 (Mainnet Candidate 4) is most likely the last version for Shelley Mainnet lauch. Cardano will become a fully decentralized network. Already there are over 200 stake pools registered on MC4.
We registered our stake pools JUNO (ticker A4PEU) and SATURN (ticker A4PUS) on MC4 this morning 8 AM UTC.
The launch of Shelley will make Cardano one of the most decentralized open source blockchain networks. It will be at least 10 times more decentralized than Bitcoin, and this is just the start. The majority of stake pools still have to register themselves on MC4.
Today or tomorrow, we are expecting a new Daedalus Shelley wallet. This new wallet works with MC4 and it will be Shelley compliant. Everyone will be able to import their Byron wallets from the Byron Mainnet and transfer their tADA (test ADA) from last weeks snapshot to a Shelley compliant wallet.
Pool operators can pledge to their pools. regular users and pool operators can delegate to any stake pool.
Everyone can participate in testing with their snapshot tADA by delegating to stake pool.
Get yourself familiar with the procedure in anticipation of the Shelley Mainnet launch coming month . You will be able to earn return on stake on your ADA ownership. For this you have to delegate it to a stake pool. With your delegation you are helping to secure the Cardano network.
In our previous post, we provided a very detailed delegation guide that was based on STN2 (Shelley Testnet 2), this network will be shortly taken down by IOHK. We will rework this document on basis of MC4 shortly once the new Daedalus Shelley wallet is available for us.
Please subscribe yourself to our social media channels so you will notified about the latest version of our delegation guide.
