Enigma, the company that wants to make public blockchains more private, postpones the release of Ethereum Mainnet that must have been a stage of their updated developmental roadmap.
The previous plan of the company was a deployment of the “Discovery” protocol which was launched on a “testnet” originally on the live Ethereum network not later than in the 3rd quarter. However, the changes in these plans were mentioned in the blog post added on Thursday. Now the company wants to build out an ecosystem and continue their cooperation with stakeholders of the project.
The message of the team says about their decision to change their original timeframes with the goal to continue cooperation with partners to create Enigma ecosystem, expand its capabilities and sign up necessary contracts. They will also put effort to acquire and onboard other launch partners, so soon there will be more news on this topic.
The comments of Tor Bair, the head of growth and marketing in Enigma, inform that the following delay of a release means that the team will get more time to devote it to the company’s long-term goal to support an adoption of dApps. Consequently, it can not be considered a delay as it accelerates towards their initial mission to build a healthy and large ecosystem within a shorter period of time. Moreover, he expressed the viewpoint of deadlines insignificance calling them a topic for discussions only.
The continuation of Bair’s speech says that being a rather young startup, their company should offer high-stakes code and provide an immediate adoption to everything shipped as well as bring all the risks of dependable on us projects to the minimum.
It is the truth that roadmap of Enigma is rather complex and there are plans to launch several more “mainnets” within the next years. Discovery is very important to deploy ‘secret contracts’ of Enigma to the live ethereum network. These contracts are capable of concealing the processing data and decentralized apps hag received an opportunity of handling sensitive personal data.
Previously, Enigma told CoinDesk 8 launch partners about the plans of the secret contracts deployment made after Discovery release.
Discovery plays a significant role in achieving the final goal of Enigma, but it will make sense only with the release of “Voyager,” “Valiant” and “Defiant,” where every launch will have its own testnet and mainnet stages. It will allow incorporating innovative technology, decentralize the protocol and improve its scaling effectiveness, and transit it to the own blockchain.
