DYDX Foundation has announced a new launch date for the public testnet of its Cosmos-based blockchain. The testnet is set to go live on July 5, earlier than the previous schedule. This is the fourth phase of DYDX’s five-stage milestones to test its blockchain before the full release of the mainnet. During the private testnet, the team made improvements to the network, including enabling documentation for market makers and validators, limit orders, dynamic funding rates, and other features. The public testnet will allow users to test and explore more features, including accessing order books, account balances, order history, and market data.
