New year, new testnet.

Last month we shared details of Mysterium’s testnet upgrade, which came with some exciting new features and functionalities.

We have been in stealth mode upgrading a small percentage of our user base and node runners onto Testnet 2.0, to test and learn. 

Now we’re rolling out Testnet 2.0 to everyone on Mysterium Network.

Experience the power of our global, decentralized network at your fingertips, using your crypto of choice! Top up your Mysterium dVPN account with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether or any other major crypto thanks to our Coingate integration. Download Mysterium dVPN today.

 

What is Testnet 2.0?

Mysterium has been running on a Testnet 1.0 for some time as we battletest and refine the code before our mainnet release on Ethereum. This constant process of revision will ensure the dVPN is robust and glitch-free upon its full launch. This is imperative, as when this happens, the app will already be serving hundreds of thousands of users, with a supporting and worldwide node network.

We gave access to the latest iteration of the dVPN to a small handful of BETA testers. Now we’ve received and acted upon their feedback, we’re ready to introduce all Mysterium dVPN users and Node Runners to Testnet 2.0

With this network upgrade, called Testnet 2.0, a number of things have changed, such as node registration flow, updates to My Mysterium Network, a different UI, the ability to earn in 2 networks during the migration, top up VPN apps with your crypto of choice (not just MYST), and the freedom to use our dApp in China!

Read about all these new updates in more detail, as well as how to upgrade and claim your node in Testnet 2.0, in our guide.
