A Blockchain usually has a Main-net and a Test-net. The mainnet is the main node that actually transfers value, like money, while a testnet is simply for testing without any transfer of value.
With the launch of the Kilimanjaro Network mainnet, Aion will have set the foundation for blockchain interoperability. The launch will be followed by the deployment of the Token Bridge making it possible to transfer AION (ERC-20) tokens on Ethereum into native AION coins.
During the launch event you will hear from the founders of the project as well as see the global Aion team. Kenya being one of the stops, we can expect to see some of the teams being highlighted at the launch.
Kenya and the Aion Network
Recently, the Aion Team, led by the founder, Matt Spoke, visited Kenya as part of their world tour to build communities and bring awareness to this third-generation network. The current crop of blockchain developers in Kenya have shown great support to the blockchain together with Matt and his team.
