Charles Hoskinson, Cardano CEO of IOHK, has finally revealed 11 dates for the proposed Shelley era.
On Thursday, May 28, the CEO laid out a roadmap for its anticipated Cardano updates. The updates (11 in total) will be made on specific dates which he revealed in a tweet.
The rollout was originally scheduled for 2019, but things didn’t go as planned. However, the Cardano team deployed a testnet, an alternative blockchain for testing, in December 2019. The testnet was a success and showed that the Proof of Stake security model was possible. Since then, there has been a huge buzz within the crypto community anticipating when the final launch would occur.
The first date on the roadmap is June 9. Users from all over the world would be able to access the stake pool. The next updates will occur in one-week intervals.
Hoskinson explained that if there are no major issues within the first 3 updates, then Cardano will release the full Shelley code on June 30. He also advised users to upgrade between June 30 and July 29, before the hard fork begins.
One of Cardano’s primary missions is to become over 50 times more decentralized than its competitors. Along with other features, this is what the Shelley era promises.
