First Welfare: Show the first block you have mined on Rylai Testnet

On May 18, 2019, CKB Testnet – Rylai was officially launched!

On May 18th, Nervos organized a small gathering named Launch Party of Nervos CKB Testnet with investment institutions, media friends and community friends. The people present witnessed the launch of the CKB Testnet and the new Logo of Nervos! :clap:

The CKB Testnet was named Rylai. Rylai is a hero in Dota, the Dota culture belongs to one of the Nervos subcultures, so in the future we will also use the heroes in Dota to name future milestones.

In addition, there are some other explanations:

  • This project was born in the cold winter; :snowflake:

  • The test network usually freezes some features, while the main network will not change much. The action of Freeze is similar to Rylai’s skill. :snowflake:

I have just mined my first block on Rylai Testnet, block height 16771.

The whole mining process was not as easy as I expected. The deepest impression is the incompatible of Docker and VMware, my computer is Win10 home edition, it is hard for me to installing Docker, I have to install the Hyper-V first, then Docker Toolbox. After installing Docker, I can’t use my favorite VMware. Then I went through a series of software deletions, it is so difficult. Finally, I got my VMware back!

In the end, I want a size L T-shirt and l come from China !

Hello from Canada! My first block was at height 13406!

Everything worked smoothly for me on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS thanks for such a pleasant experience!

My only feedback would be that the miner output in multithreaded mode needs to be less noisy.

L size T-shirt if you do send me one :slight_smile:

By the way, I would love to volunteer! I am a full-time Senior Software Developer working in the blockchain space.
