Announcing Lisk Testnet v3 Migration
The Lisk Testnet is an invaluable tool as its main function is to enable all relevant upgrades to be tested publicly first before they are released into production onto the Lisk Mainnet. Essentially, the Lisk Testnet can be defined as an independently deployed testing network which to a large extent simulates the actual Lisk Mainnet. We have released a blog post with everything you need to know about the Lisk Testnet v3 migration as well as what to expect from the update coming up on July 1st.
Introducing the Lisk Community Squad
As a consequence of Lisk’s growth, development, and expansion we felt the need to encourage and include core community members even further by giving them a chance to make a difference in our community and ecosystem. We called them the Lisk Community Squad, and they are the voice of our community.
We released a blog post that provides further information as to what led to the creation of the squad, the actual roles, and responsibilities of the current team members as well as an insight on how to join.
