TESTING, TESTING! Grin’s first testnet has been released! Help us find bugs! If you can build and compile software on Linux or MacOS, see our building guide.
Developers are working on the features required for testnet2.
Find an area you can help with and do it. Open source is about collaboration and open participation. Grin has an open Code of Conduct, please be aware of it.
