The testnet aims to facilitate business use cases on the Ethereum network during 2020
The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), which consists of over 180 companies and 1,400 individual members, has announced the launch of a new testnet for business building on Ethereum.
The EEA is a standards organisation for Ethereum which works to provide interoperability for business users of the blockchain network.
The testnet, which will allow users to build decentralised applications (dApps) in a sandbox environment, is designed to operate the same as building in a live environment just without the costs.
MetaMask will be supported out of the box, which will allow users to deploy and use their own dApps.
EEA executive director Ron Resnick shared:
“The EEA’s business-focused approach enables the broader Ethereum business community to collaborate, innovate, and contribute to the evolution of world-class Ethereum solutions.”
