Shelley project and its ambitious goal, how it’s broken down into manageable workstreams and an outline of the key deliverables were previously explained in detail by Liz Bancroft-Turner from IOHK. She speaks about the capabilities for Cardano [ADA], Shelley’s plans for the future, important dates and their timeline during her update with a video presentation.
The Shelley high-level roadmap consists of three phases: Research phase, Design phase, and the Implementation phase.
In the research phase, the delegation and incentive research papers were almost complete. The team expects Q2 or Q3 of 2018 of their share, i.e. the research papers.
The design phase has a number of key deliverables including delegation and incentives design document on which they are currently working on, making good progress.
They also have a number of networking design documents, peer discovery documents, Delta Q measurement designs, communication protocols, and core DIF. Out of which, peer discovery documents and communication protocols are work in progress or nearly finished.
The implementation phase is expected in Q3 of this year and that’s the delegation and incentives core – front and back. The peer discovery is in progress and they also have other deliverables like Delta Q measurements, communication protocol, and core DIF as already mentioned, awaiting completion and implementation.
Shelley Test Net:
There have been various communications about this with the stake pool registration window having been closed at the end of May 2018. The team continues to focus on research programs and they anticipate the Shelley test net for the staking to arrive at the end of Q3 this year based on their current progress.
Liz expressed towards the end mentioning:
