Summary of the weekly AMA with Dan
Q: Hi Dan, how is SYS 4 coming along? How close are we to testnet?
A: SYS4 is coming along really well… we made some improvements to how masternodes communicate that should reduce network congestion and Jag and Willy are testing that on our internal testnet right now. I am not hearing of any major explosions on that front, so I think we are getting closer to public testnet. Jag wanted to verify that MN change was solid before opening up the testnet.
Q: I have a question about the whiteblock report. I’ve been wondering if it would make sense to release this at the same time as SYS 4. Is this probably what will happen?
A: Yeah that is what we are planning, or in very near succession. Whiteblock is using SYS4 for their testing, so it makes sense imo. Likely a zdag paper as well by then.
Q: What will Sys4 enable that is needed for Pangolin to be completed?
A: There is nothing really related to pangolin dependencies tied to SYS4
its more business priorities holding up Pangolin.
