Cardano launches Shelly mainnet two days before Virtual Summit.
Cardano (ADA) is upgrading from “Byron” over to “Shelley”. According to an announcement from the project:
“We’ve been successfully running node v 1.14.2 on the Shelley public testnet for over a week now. And we can confirm that we’ll deploy the new node to the Cardano mainnet… today, 30th June as per the first date in the rollout plan.”
Shelley offers greater decentralization and lays the groundwork for Goguen, which will introduce smart contracts. The Shelley version of Daedalus wallet has been released as well.
