Raiden, an “off-chain scaling option, allowing near-instant, low-fee and also scalable payments”, has actually announced the launch of its new test network at the Dappcon programmer seminar in Berlin on 19th July. Raiden’s most recent addition will aid Ethereum (ETH) to be traded on off-chain channels. The testnet will certainly be examined for the last time prior to it obtains offered to the routine users.
Raiden’s mainnet implementation
This is a significant step and also as Lefteris Karapetsas, the core developer of the task, informed CoinDesk: “It’s the first step to mosting likely to the mainnet.”

Karapetsas added that this most recent release goes to its preliminary phase of mainnet application. It will possess some recently revised contract code as well as repayment channels that are recoverable in case of any type of unexpected closure.
To locate any type of potential pest, Karapetsas dealt with developers asking them to utilize this testnet to locate any kind of. To monetarily back this, a program will certainly also be announced. “We actually desire people to really check this so we have an interface, we have an API and also we have actually developed an open Github for whatever they can find, so if we go with any luck bug-free on the mainnet,” Karapetsas said.
When will it be launched?
The payment channel network for Ethereum, hasn’t already specified when it will in fact applied. But Raiden is striving to remain true to its initially assured summer launch. “Till the end of August it’s still summer,” Karapetsas claimed. “Feature-wise the plan is to just launch with the exact same functions that carry the testnet right now.” Raiden, in the meantime is attempting to attend to some scaling problems of Ethereum and various other blockchains.
Later, routine code updates and optimizations will certainly follow the mainnet launch.
” Raiden is essentially the payment channel network for ethereum, it’s meant to help us range token transfers,” Karapetsas explained, adding:
” The long-term goal would be to have individuals utilize Raiden from a mobile device and also have the ability to make off-chain token transfers simply from their phone. That would be the long term vision, it would possibly work in mix with various scaling options, sharding, plasma, a kind of crossbreed.”
