The Radix Olympia Betanet is now live. Welcome!

Before we get into the fun, it’s worth repeating a little background on what Betanet is and isn’t:

Betanet is a temporary test network, pure and simple. It is intended to provide a final, large-scale stress test of the protocol that will be offered to our community as the basis of the first version of the Radix public network (called Olympia).

Betanet is not the beginning of the official public Radix ledger or the official XRD token — that’s the Olympia mainnet. Unlike mainnet, the Radix team will have ultimate control of…


Radix Tokens (Jersey) Limited is pleased to announce that they will be selling a small amount of eXRD using the Bitfinex Token Sales Inc. Catalyst Sale planform on April 27th, 2021, starting at 11:00AM UTC.

In the event that the sale is oversubscribed, eXRD will be distributed proportionally to all participants in the Catalyst Sale.eXRD …

It’s getting very exciting for the Radix team as we enter the final two weeks leading up to the long-awaited Radix Betanet. With the deadline in sight, the team is pushing every ounce of willpower into the code.

In this blog series, we present the different members of the Radix team to the community (Check out the previous post with Ray & Lukasz). Today we sat down for a virtual coffee and chatted with Jacob and Sergiy.

Every second Tuesday, Radix DLT’s Founder Dan Hughes hosts a technical ask-me-anything (AMA) session in the main Radix Telegram Channel. The premise of the session is simple: Dan climbs in from the coding cave, and answers as many Radix tech-related questions as possible.

Thank you to all who submitted questions and joined the AMA. This week’s session was unique because Dan focused on two important topics — centralization, and front-running.

You can find the full transcript below from the AMA sessions on April 13th, 2021.

Rock Howard asked on Discord if front-running is possible on Radix. My thoughts are: In…

The crypto space progresses at great speeds, and the fact we are now into Q2 is a testament to that. Looking back at the last quarter there is a strong sense of growing momentum, both with Radix and the industry as a whole.

Since the betanet announcement, we’ve…
