Ethereum Foundation members recently announced the launch of its new Testnet – Görli, a proof-of-authority [PoA] testnet on Ethereum, this week during GörlieCon 2019. It is also Ethereum’s very first PoA cross-client testnet.
According to reports, the testnet was initiated in the month of September 2018 and the leading teams of the Foundation collaborated on the open-source project. This includes Infura, MakerDAO, Parity Technologies, ChainSafe and PIA network.
In a blog post titled – ‘The Gorli Testnet Proposal – A call for participation’, Afri Schoedon, the hard fork co-ordinator at Ethereum and Release Manager at Parity, had stated that this testnet could become the next-generation public testnet of Ethereum. The proposal was also made taking into account that there was no testnet that was both “widely usable across all client implementation, and robust enough to guarantee consistent availability and high reliability.”
