The Axo Testnet Is Live

Unveiling the Future of DeFi

The wait is over, and the speculation can finally be put to rest. Yes, Axo is live on testnet! If you can’t wait any longer, you can jump straight in.We've heard the buzz on social media, questioning if we'd ever launch. Well, here we are, and let us tell you - good things take time. Building the next generation of trading isn't just about tweaking existing models; it's about shattering norms and setting new standards. That's exactly what we've done.From developing groundbreaking mathematics of finance to creating xlang, our very own programming language, we've gone above and beyond to set a new bar for what's possible in decentralized finance. 

What to expect

The primary objective of our testnet is to gather robust testing data from large scale protocol use. As we navigate the pre-mainnet launch phase, here's how the protocol on the testnet will operate:Unconventional market behavior: Given that testnet participants will have access to freely minted tokens devoid of any intrinsic value, we anticipate unconventional trading patterns. Such scenarios, which wouldn't typically manifest in a real market, will drive intriguing market dynamics. For instance, the prices between DJED/token X and ADA/token X might diverge considerably, given there is no necessity to arbitrage.Controlled throughput: To enhance the clarity of proofs generated by the Axo protocol, we might intentionally limit the Axo network's throughput, thereby minimizing data noise.Potential network forks: Depending on the insights gathered from the testnet, we might introduce an Axo protocol update. These changes could be as subtle as brief downtimes or, in more extreme cases, necessitate a comprehensive network relaunch. Such updates might occasionally not be backward incompatible, especially if significant modifications are warranted.Feature rollout: Some functionalities, like strategy backtesting, are still in the pipeline, while others have yet to reach their finalized versions.Algorithm Introduction: Our aim with the testnet is to amass high-quality feedback. To achieve this, we've opted for a phased approach to algorithm deployment. We'll commence with simpler algorithms and gradually incorporate more intricate ones as the testnet progresses. While users have the freedom to craft any algorithm using xlang, the protocol's public algorithm bundle will be unveiled in stages to meticulously assess their influence on the protocol.Bugs: Will be found - that’s the goal of the testnet!

Let's get started

Setup is different for each wallet, so if you don’t know how, make sure to check out our guide.You’ll want to load up on some tADA (test ADA) from the IOHK faucet. The testnet would be no fun without something to trade, so when you’re ready, jump onto the testnet - make sure to connect your wallet - then click the faucet link in the top menu to live out your whale fantasies and mint whatever tokens you’d like!

The road ahead

If you think this is it, you're sorely mistaken.
