Sovrin Provisional Network Launched


Phil Windley (@phil), Chair of the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees, just posted this announcement that the Sovrin Provisional Network went live at 17:30 GMT today.

This milestone marks the graduation of the Sovrin Alpha Network, which has been operating since early June, to the Provisional Network stage. While all transactions on the network will now be permanent, the network will be still undergoing stability and scalability testing, feature upgrades, and security reviews until such point that the Trustees, Technical Governance Board, and Stewards concur that it is ready for General Availability.

During this period the network will be operating under the Sovrin Provisional Trust Framework.


This is an important and exciting achievement.

Congratulations to all who participated and helped make this happen!


@peacekeeper Congratulations to you and the other 9 stewards who took part in the genesis transaction!
