Development Updates

During the last month, the Cartesi team worked vigilantly towards several upcoming Q2 milestones.

  • Cartesi Rollups: Continued work and implementation of Cartesi Rollups. Concluded coding of the “Output”, “Validator Manager” and “Descartes V2” contracts, all with basic unit test coverage done.

We are now working on completing the Delegation system and it will be released on testnet soon. We are now entering the final internal testing phase before the public launch by the end of Q2.
