Users advised being aware of bugs and issues, as it is just a prototype of the actual mainnet. The pioneers of blockchain technology are extremely satisfied with the functioning of Shelley testnet, which also resonates through its head of delivery, Christopher Greenwood.
Cardano Shelley TestNet Upgrade
There has been an overwhelming response for all functionalities, including transaction submitting, delegating, and changing pool parameters. According to experts, minor hurdles faced in the form of ‘cosmetic’ bugs but did not hamper their spirit. Users can spread this vulnerability through word-of-mouth and increase its usage.
