Energi implementing POS. Testnet is live
By Rafał - 2019-02-05
I am very excited to announce this - we have been working hard on implementing Proof of Stake for Energi and we are now ready to begin a public test of the PoS system! This is an amazing opportunity for the community to see what is in store for our next release of Energi, including learning how to stake your coins before PoS goes live on the main net. The test will be conducted on our testnet, using testnet coins which have no value and can not be interchanged with main net coins.
