EVEN testnet
EVEN testnet
Our test network has been running for 2 weeks. During this time:

  • more than 200 nodes registered;
  • more than 500 transactions completed;
  • simultaneously up to 15 nodes were registered online;
  • node synchronization after installation usually takes 1 minute;
  • the nodes were running on Windows, Linux, Mac OS.

We proposed EVEN network testers to upload 2 files - the actual node installer and the client. Then it was necessary to open two consoles. In one of them, a node was launched, which immediately connected to peers and synchronized, and in another, a client opened. The following features were available: viewing peers online, creating wallets, viewing balances of any wallets, sending transactions, uploading files to the IPFS network (to learn more about IPFS implementation in EVEN network read this document).

The network proved the stable operation of nodes and clients, the developers' hypotheses were confirmed. We collected useful metrics on data transport speed via IPFS.

We have identified issues that will be fixed by the next release:

  1. With an increase in the number of nodes, the network worked better, but the load on individual nodes increased. The load on the nodes should be optimized.
  2. There were some problems with the deployment and synchronization of a few nodes.
  3. There were problems with data transport associated with damaged files. This interfered with the network monitoring but did not affect end-users of nodes.

We thank all the participants of the testnet. Special acknowledgments to Hovo Tumanyan and Micabytes for the captured videos and testing of various platforms.

If you still didn't join the testnet, download the main EVEN node daemon and utilities needed for network operation and transaction visualization and follow the guide.
