Shiba Inu: When is Shibarium mainnet launching?
Shytoshi is seen telling influencer Lucie in a chat that the Testnet could be deployed for the next two months minimum. The developer added that the Testnet period might go further and dropped a tentative timeframe. “It can be much longer! 4 months,” said Shytoshi.
Therefore, when the influencer asked, “How long will Beta take?” Shytoshi responded, “Depends. We will be creating systems and bug hunting”.
Bug hunting is a process of finding vulnerabilities in software before it releases in the market. The development fixes all issues regarding security, and UI/UX, and identifies errors before the final launch. It is the most important period for a trial-and-error process to make the final release a smooth experience for the user.
When asked by the influencer how many months could the Beta testing phase remain, Shytoshi answered, “Guess 2 months. It can be much longer! 4 months,” he said.
However, this is not a confirmed release, and the dates may vary as the beta version needs to be fully tested end-to-end.
