High-level summary

This week, the Hydra team has continued work on the mainnet compatibility of the hydra-node. They added a golden test suite for hydra-plutus scripts, added some detection of hydra-node misconfiguration, established a limit of 100 ADA per commit and other smaller tasks to prepare for a mainnet beta release.

Next week there will be a small team workshop to push for demonstrating a Hydra Head on the Cardano mainnet, ideally just in time for the monthly review meeting. See the hydra channels on the IOG Technical Community discord server for details.

  • Pay back funds to faucet after smoke-test run #773
