Matic just announced June launch dates for its staking testnet and mainnet.
“Staking UI to be publicly available on testnet by 15th June,” Matic said in a June 10 statement on its blog. “Final staking and delegation to foundation nodes on the Matic mainnet to go live on or before 29th June,” the post added.
Matic staking goes live for education
Orignally an Initial Exchange Offering, or IEO, on Binance, Matic Network operates in the payments sector.
The project’s June 15 launch brings out a staking test network, hosting over 110 validators, with a user interface, letting the public experiment with staking on Matic, the statement said.
Mainnet also goes live in June
Matic also plans to start up its mainnet in June after a third-party outfit completes “an additional round of audits,” the statement said, adding:
“Based on their feedback, we will be making a few upgrades before the final launch of staking and delegation to Foundation nodes on or before June 29.”
Amid the news of the coming launch, however, Matic’s asset price tumbled approximately 20% between the end of May and early June.
