The Final Testnet

Shardeum's journey to mainnet requires thorough testing of prototype networks. The alphanet, Shardeum Liberty, tested EVM compatibility and sharding features. Shardeum Sphinx simulates Shardeum’s mainnet environment, ensuring production readiness and allowing safe application testing. Sphinx is the final step before the mainnet launch.

Before that, let's see the progress made on
