Waltonchain has announced alpha testing phase of their blockchain, after completing internal testing.
During this phase WTC token holders will be involved in testing of basic functions, typical applications, blockchain security and the wallet. Participants will need to have a balance of at least 1,000 WTC tokens to take part in the alpha testing phase.
The idea behind China-based Waltonchain project is to combine radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology with the blockchain to eliminate retail counterfeiting and solve issues connected with the supply chain management industry (i.e. production, logistics and warehousing). Essentially, Waltonchain will provide all-in-one solution for monitoring and tracking of items.
Update: On November 11, 2017, Waltonchain released an official letter regarding the results of alpha testing to the community.
Dear Waltonchain family,
First off, we would like to thank all of you for your continued love and support. When we announced testing back on Oct. 30th, we received more than 400 volunteer applications. While we would have loved to accept every applicant, we selected 60 volunteers to aid in alpha testing the Waltonchain parent chain.
From Nov. 6th through the 10th, we tested the Waltonchain blockchain browser, wallet and all the related full-node functions, applications, and security.
During the test, we received more than 140 suggestions from our testers that helped us further strengthen Waltonchain. We have been implementing the best ideas from our volunteers systematically, and hope to include all valid suggestions down the line. As an appreciation to our testers, all of the volunteers will receive WTC as a reward for their energy, hard work, and enthusiasm.
As of Nov. 10th, we are happy to say that the alpha testing of the Waltonchain parent chain is complete. Currently, the R&D team is working feverishly to improve the parent chain system based on everyone’s feedback. We ask that you continue to watch for the release of the beta test in December that will incorporate submitted suggestions and improvements to the parent chain system. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue to participate in the overall development of Waltonchain.
We would like to express our gratitude to everyone for your constant love and support.
Talk again soon,
