Cardano (ADA) is introducing a new peer-to-peer test as part of its efforts to become fully decentralized.
“We are optimizing the network to increase throughput so more transactions can be processed faster, and decentralized applications (DApps) and smart contracts created and used more efficiently,” developers of the project wrote in a blog post confirming the development.
Cardano said around 3,000 stake pools are being managed by operators (SPOs). These operators control the distributed nodes that power the network.
A small group of eleven poll operators have been invited to participate in a semi-public testnet before the program is launched on a large scale.
The semi-public testnet will enhance the node’s Prometheus with three connection techniques; outbound, inbound, and unidirectional or duplex connections.
Additionally, the blog post explained that “community-supported rollouts” are key to the company’s approach citing the Shelley incentivized testnet and the Alonzo testnets program.
