Raiden, an “off-chain scaling remedy, enabling near-instant, low-fee and scalable settlements”, has introduced the launch of its new test network at the Dappcon developer meeting in Berlin on 19th July. Raiden’s latest inclusion will certainly help Ethereum (ETH) to be traded on off-chain channels. The testnet will be analyzed for the last time prior to it obtains readily available to the normal users.
Raiden’s mainnet execution
This is a significant action and as Lefteris Karapetsas, the core developer of the job, told CoinDesk: “It’s the first step to going to the mainnet.”

Karapetsas included that this latest launch goes to its initial phase of mainnet application. It will own some freshly reworded agreement code as well as payment networks that are recoverable in case of any kind of accidental closure.
To discover any kind of potential insect, Karapetsas addressed designers inquiring to utilize this testnet to discover any type of. To financially back this, a program will likewise be revealed. “We actually want people to actually check this so we have a user interface, we have an API and we have actually created an open Github for everything they could find, so if we go with any luck bug-free on the mainnet,” Karapetsas stated.
When will it be launched?
The repayment channel network for Ethereum, hasn’t already specified when it will actually applied. But Raiden is aiming to stay real to its initially guaranteed summertime launch. “Until completion of August it’s still summer season,” Karapetsas claimed. “Feature-wise the strategy is to just release with the exact same attributes that have on the testnet now.” Raiden, in the meantime is aiming to deal with some scaling concerns of Ethereum and various other blockchains.
Later on, routine code updates and also optimizations will follow the mainnet release.

” Raiden is essentially the settlement channel network for ethereum, it’s intended to assist us range token transfers,” Karapetsas described, adding:
” The long term goal would certainly be to have people make use of Raiden from a mobile phone as well as have the ability to make off-chain token transfers just from their phone. That would certainly be the long term vision, it would probably work in combination with numerous scaling solutions, sharding, plasma, a sort of hybrid.”
