What's the difference between the Hive and the Matrix?
Hive is getting better with every new release! ;-)
This is going to be a very broing post for non-technical users, so if you happen to be one, then idk, just enjoy the new promo animation:
Beneficiaries: 100% set to @hbdstabilizer (TL;DR: it makes HBD more stable and as a side effect it profits whole platform and its users)
OK, so if you are still reading then you just want to get raw data quickly:
New testnet instance is based on recent
develop branch, i.e.
So if you want to run the same code use:
git checkout 32716a5b2c82eaad7c9ba58e435295bbefbc66b5
Other useful information:
p2p-seed-node = testnet.openhive.network:2001
Hive testnet chain-id
API endpoint (via jussi)
Hive Testnet Condenser instance
Hive Testnet Wallet instance
hived direct http server
hived direct websocket server
hivemind server direct server
For now, just to start things up quickly, I'm running new hived, but the old versions of all the other components such as hivemind, condenser, wallet. Those will be upgraded to current versions soon.
It wasn't long before first issue was identified thanks to the new testnet instance:
legacy mode in
Fix is on its way, but expect more issues and rough edges.
That's the whole point of testnet: to improve things before the final version is ready.
For testing changes to RC and other more demanding close to real world scenarios we would have to provision a mirror-of-the-mainnet type of a testnet. Lets in the meantime focus on this "little thing" ;-)
Little testnet thing
- Snapshot takes 6.2GB (was: HF25 testnet: 3.9GB)
- Account history RocksDB storage: 2GB
- Block log: 1.3GB
- Shared memory file: 4.9GB
- Hivemind storage: 2GB
So as you can se it's fairly easy and lightweight to run your own Hive components in the tesetnet, whether you join the public one or run it on your own.
If you want to participate in public one, please let me know in the comments so I could send you some "testnet funds" if you need them.
Remember that those have no value and will vanish.
(Hopefully I don't have to remind about that, right?)
Also please expect that due to the nature of the testnet it's expected to be unavailable from time to time and/or reinitialized (i.e. restarted from scratch losing all history) without any warning / notice.
