Republic Protocol Testnet Update – Over 14,000 orders matched
Republic Protocol CEO, Taiyang Zhang was ecstatic this week as he revealed the statistical reviews of the Testnet that has been running since the start of July. Mr. Zhang, discussed the operations of the Republic Protocol Testnet and its future utility while targeting global adoption.
“We couldn’t be happier with what has been accomplished so far but with that said, it is important to discuss the future utility of the Republic Protocol Testnet, and how it will operate going forward,”Mr. Zhang said.
The CEO further discussed the future of Republic Protocol Testnet and its commitment towards decentralized cross – chain dark pool development and how the testing process is to be carried out. The Testnet Dark nodes acts as an area for users who want to build and develop dark pools, tools and services or test trading bots abilities while the team test bug fixes, protocol upgrades and experiment with implementations.
The protocol also has unique use cases outside of RenEx and fostering a community and innovative testing ground will remain top priority after the Main net Beta launch.
The Statistics On Republic Protocol Testnet
The statistics recorded on Republic Protocol Testnet, after running for the past two months have been positive and Mr. Zhang expects them to be even better well into the future as more tests are carried out on the protocol.
The Testnet approved hundreds of hundreds of applications — with over two hundred applicants taking the opportunity to run Testnet Dark nodes — and in the last two months over 14,000 orders have been matched.

More On The Republic Protocol Testnet
The Republic Protocol team continues to work towards becoming a global premier decentralized platform with governance of the platform left to the participants. The goal of the Republic protocol development team is to provide its users with dark pool trading of cryptocurrencies and other digital assets on a decentralized, cheap and efficient tokenized platform.
For this to be achieved, the team will allow users to conduct their own Testnets from their computers in addition to the one that will be operated by the Republic Protocol team. This is done on major blockchains such as Ethereum that runs different Testnets to trial different features and governance (for example, Ethereum has Ropsten, Kovan, and Rinkeby).
