There are some news in the Tezos community that are worth paying attention to. For over a year, a test network known as alphanet has been running, and the community was using it.
It has been providing great engineering insight, and valuable experience, but there is no substitute for real-world experience.

This is why the Tezos Foundation is looking forward to launch a beta network called betanet. In a blog post, Tezos announced this new network and announced all the preparations required for contributors to be prepared for it – which was one of the top ten all time highest grossing initial coin offering token sales of all time.
Tezos contributors that have decided to interact with the network need to have clear that it will undergo unscheduled downtime and require maintenance and adjustments.
Check Your Contribution
The company explains that a genesis block will be proposed by the Tezos foundation at the betanet launch. It is very important, so as to prepare for it, that all contributors would verify their donation – regardless of the size – to confirm that it was received by the Foundation.
You can do this, on the ‘Check Your Contribution’ tool that can be found here. Once you access the site, you need to enter the Tezos public key has sent on the PDF document created during the fundraiser. If the donation does not appear after entering the key hash, it will not be included in the genesis block proposed by the Foundation. If you want it to be included, then further measures need to be taken.
