April 23, 2020

The Stacks 2.0 Testnet is Live

It appears that Blockstack has launched the Stacks testnet today – To get started right away, visit   Go try it out and get ready for the launch of the mainnet later this Summer.

Go to the testnet and try out running a node, mining (coming soon), creating smart contracts, testing…

Welcome to The Stack CafeTM — A Giant Leap for Blockstack – Testnet for Stacks2.0, a new mining protocol.

Blockstack is about to introduce a new mining mechanism – Stacks2.0 or proof-of-transfer (PoX).  In this new protocol, a new secure blockchain is established in which the miner transfers the cryptocurrrency to another participant on the blockchain instead of burning the cryptocurrency.  This new Pox protocol helps incentivize – earn rewards – network participants to actively participate in the network but also may help eliminate the bootstrapping problems for new blockchains and make the new blockchain protocol more stable and secure. 

To learn more about PoX, join the community meeting on April 24, 2020.
