Regen Candidate Chain Conclusion
We successfully concluded our candidate for mainnet launch on April 6, 2021 and only a small need to fine tune the genesis file was required. Due to the hard work performed during the previous testnets by the community validators and the RND Inc team we are happy to announce that the chain operated perfectly and we are ready for launch on April 15, 2021!
You can read more about the purpose of our one week candidate chain here however, to summarize, the main purpose of our candidate chain was to allow token holders to audit their wallet balance before launch.
The candidate proved to perform it’s job and a few minor changes were made to the genesis file, mainly parameter changes and a couple of allocation updates. The biggest change we made is 1 REGEN was airdropped to all addresses (to be used for staking / withdrawing rewards), except fully unlocked RND & Foundation addresses. The airdrop serves the purpose of paying for the initial gas fees when delegating to validators. You can read a more detailed description by visiting the final pull request for the genesis file in the Regen GitHub which includes the following technical information.
Changes from pull request number 116
Airdrop 1 regen to all accounts to pay for fees
Changes from pull request number 111
Updating accounts.csv with necessary updates from the initial candidate chain account addresses & balances:
two missing token allocations were added
Tokens in RND’s Community Bootstrapping Fund decreased by 7207 REGEN, as this address was holding the extra funds for the missing token allocations
one token holder needed their addresses updated
two token holders needed their allocation split between two addresses
I’ve set a new genesis time for a second candidate chain to occur at:
0.334to the Hub's value of
“blocks_per_year”: “6311520” was changed to “blocks_per_year”: “4360000”
Now that RND Inc and the Regen community have performed extensive audits and testnets, we are ready for our much anticipated launch to mainnet! This is a very exciting time for everyone involved and we couldn’t be happier!
Please register for our launch party starting on Thursday April 15, 2021 at 1400 UTC on crowdcast.io! Following the Cosmos tradition, we will be launching the chain live at 1500 UTC. Come join the excitement and see you there!!
