Cardano News: IOHK Updated The New Incentivized Testnet Before 2020
Cardano made headlines not too long ago when Weiss ratings compared the project to EOS.
“Cardano is clearly superior to #EOS. EOS was first to market, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that of the two, Cardano is vastly superior…” says Weiss Ratings agency.
Other than that, Charles Hoskinson said that the platform is preparing for a massive marketing move in 2020.
New incentivized testnet was updated one last time before 2020
IOHK, which is the company behind Cardano, said that they had updated the new incentivized testnet one last time before the new year.
The testnet allows people to earn rewards for holding Cardano’s native crypto ADA when they are joining the network and create nodes in order to process and verify transactions.
“We’ve just pushed out a new version of Daedalus (v2.0.1-ITN1) to squash a few common bugs including those affecting balance and stake pool display for some users. It is available to download now from the Incentivized Testnet site.”
Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson said that so far, the testnet has been a massive success, and there are more than 340 independent stake pools registered.

The announcement received great feedback.
Someone said: “The update fixed my Daedalus crashing problem, it also fixed the stake pool dashboard from disappearing, and it also fixed my delegation to an unknown pool to now showing the proper pool. Swift fixes even with a skeleton team during the holidays. 😍”
Another Twitter user posted: “v2.0.1 works great! Thank you so much for your hard work during the holidays,” and someone else said: “Updated and working like a champ! The rewards wallet is fine as well. ”
The crypto market also looks good today with most important digital assets trading in the green.
