The highly anticipated project by RSK Labs officially moves into open beta status today with the launch of their public testnet named Ginger.
RSK Labs, the company behind Rootstock, announced at Consensus 2017 on Monday the global release of their open source testnet, Ginger.
Developers worldwide can now deploy an RSK node, grab some testnet coins, and try out ethereum-style smart contracts on RSK's sidechain to the Bitcoin network.
A network stats page, an RSK block explorer, and a testnet RSK coin faucet are also available to the public.
Ginger "Adds more functionalities to the Bitcoin network such as smart contracts, greater scalability and a new revenue stream for miners," RSK Labs described.
RSK Labs plans to use their latest funds for R&D, strengthening network security, and deploying a "Mainnet in a few months," which would end the Ginger trial and launch RSK for real usage this year.
