As the IOTA Foundation on your Blog announces, it needs to Coordicide, so the abolition of its most Central element, some Tests. Therefore, the developer team is now GoShimmer. This is a prototype, which has to include the concepts of Coordicide blueprint. In other words: GoShimmer the Code is, the basics of a decentralized IOTA-testing Ecosystem.
GoShimmer is intended to serve as IOTA stresses, only as an Experimental environment for developers:
GoShimmer not finished
Through this approach, we are able to use our concepts piece by piece and, above all, at the same time, but independently of each other, in our prototype implementation.
Quite Mature GoShimmer far that seems to be, however. It is said in the message that you have to add in the coming days and weeks, missing blocks, in order to make the Whole "a[m] fully functional prototype". Finally, it was important to give the Community an insight into the current status of the IOTA-Ecosystem:
Even if the development of this code is not yet complete, we want to give the Community the opportunity to track the development process and to the testing of the individual modules to participate in.
In the coming months, this prototype will be implemented even in a public "Alphanet". To give both the developers and the Community the opportunity to test IOTA and its future is extensively.More about the IOTA Coordicide
recently published in IOTA, the Roadmap for the planned abolition of the coordinator. Herein it was said already, that on GoShimmer another Testnet is to follow. However, it is only when the IOTA Foundation and the Community have gained a certain level of security. It is all about the test, such as the IOTA System without a Central instance, the coordinator works. This ensures that the Tangle – IOTAs technical basis – stands on secure legs.
