BNB Greenfield Testnet August Reset: Maintenance Upgrade, Bug Fixes, and New Features on August 3rd

BNB Greenfield Testnet August Reset: Maintenance Upgrade, Bug Fixes, and New Features

BNB Greenfield is undergoing a regular maintenance upgrade for the testnet version to v0.2.3 on August 3rd, between 6:00 am – 10:00 am UTC. All buckets/objects previously stored on Greenfield Testnet will be cleared and won’t be available for query anymore. All account balances will also be reset.

As we make our way to the mainnet, our key goals involve addressing bugs from previous versions and introducing new features to provide users with a more refined and efficient platform.

Please note that after the reset, all tBNB on Greenfield will be cleared. We’re gearing up to execute an airdrop for the lion’s share of our users. As per our airdrop rules, users will receive the same amount in the airdrop if they hold less than 10 tBNB. This means you will not have to go through the faucet and bridge processes again. We’re streamlining the experience to make it as convenient as possible for you.

Additionally, we want to inform you that all buckets and objects on Greenfield will be erased. This means they will no longer be accessible or queryable. We understand that this might cause some inconvenience, but please rest assured that these steps are necessary to ensure the optimal performance of our network.
