It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop


This seems to be a recurring theme as of late, us finding critical bugs in our upstream codebases*, and it has happened yet again. We have discovered during our development a a severe bug in our upstream codebase, it is so serious we will not be commenting or answering questions on it at this time.

upstream codebases* – I have had a few DMs on Discord and it seems some people are missing this part of it. These bugs are not created by our development and originate upstream. Our current upstream codebases are Bitcoin, Ravencoin, DASH, and Monero.



In October we identified a bug and worked with the Ravencoin devs to help get it resolved, you can read more about that in our Raptoreum October 2019 Update. Here is a screen from the Ravencoin Discord:

Ravencoin bug found by Raptoreum


When we set a target date for something like a new testnet stage or mainnet launch it is always tentative, and this is something we have always tried to be completely clear on. We will not rush and release code into production that has not been well tested and audited, we are constantly as a team trying to find holes and issues with the code. Turns out we are exceptionally good at it, much to the dismay of our roadmap! Please don’t ask us about this bug, we will release details on it when it is safe to do so, we also are not setting a date for mainnet at this time. We need to get this resolved and launch TN4 first.


On a more positive note, some of you may have noticed the addition of several bright blue people to the Discord server. They are:
