Main Network

The real network

Production releases are used for server ready to serve the real grid.

Thank you to join this next release but keep in mind this is not fully stable yet.

Test Network

Make it bulletproof

Yaaay, you were waiting for this, it's now available for our grid version 3 !

The test network is the way to go if you want to enjoy features of our version 3 release without going too deep into development and get a nearly stable version.

Thank you to join this next release but keep in mind this is not fully stable yet.

Dev Network

Crashtest

Our current version 3 is the next awesome release of the grid. This version includes real decentralization and lots of new features, but it's still in an early stage.

Thank you to join this next release but keep in mind this is really not stable yet.
