Due to the POW mining power is unstable, the Aggron testnet is hanging after huge mining power leaves.
It’s not suitable to apply POW for a testnet due to the lack of miner incentive, and the hanging and reset of the testnet is unfriendly to developers.
To provide a stable and long term testnet for contract development I propose a POA testnet to replace the current Aggron:
- The block time should be very stable, approximate to 8 seconds.
- The POA testnet supposed to be a long term running testnet, the validators of the testnet should be maintained and governance by the community.
- A minority malicious validators can’t halt or censorship on POA testnet.
