Nervos Network, an open-source blockchain platform, has announced today launch of its “Lina” mainnet. Now fully operating, miners and developers will be able to work on and utilize the network starting Nov 16.
The Common Knowledge Base (CKB), is Nervos’ permissionless blockchain that anchors the network. Going forward, the Nervos community expects various layer-2 solutions to bring scalability.
The native CKByte (CKB) token is used for resource management, miner incentivization and allocated storage space on the Nervos blockchain.
During a six-month testnet period, Nervos launched a number of initiatives to strengthen its security and ensure a stable network for the mainnet launch.
Mainnet preparations included a series of mining competitions to stress test the network (with hashrate exceeding 20 TH/s), two independent security audits, and a $1 million bug bounty program.
Over the past months, the Nervos team completed fundraising $72 million via a token sale on Coinlist.
Institutions participating included: China Merchants Bank International (CMBI), Polychain Capital, Blockchain Capital, Hashkey, MultiCoin, and Distributed Global.
