Thanks to an increase in SCRT, as well as the buffer, we exchanged for $30386 and this again allowed us to run for an additional month.
Testnet was challenging at times recently, but we’ve met the challenges.
Currently syncing can take a long time, and you require more memory.
This quarter we look forward to migrating to pulsar-3, which gives dApps a closer copy of mainnet.
Stakeholders are urged to reach out to @ertemann or myself so you’re kept in the loop and migrate timeously.
The charter was updated with the following tasks for the migration, and anything else it takes to ensure a smooth transition;
Migrate to pulsar-3
- Run new testnet alongside pulsar-2, including faucet, load balancer for public endpoints
- Co-ordinating with testnet validators
- Communicating with stakeholders, dApp devs etc
- Updating explorers, faucets, Keplr config
- Updating docs
- Updating Secret JS Templates
The budget is quite similar to the previous quarter, although market conditions have changed a lot and this makes the SCRT ask including buffer around 88K at current price.
Given the higher demand on the testnet recently, as well as the upcoming migration to pulsar-3, I don’t believe we can cut the expenses to compensate.
We’ll continue to strive to do the best we can with the support we have.
Kind thanks for your support of the testnet.
