The Elastos Blockchain Team is pleased to announce the deployment of the Ethereum Sidechain and NEO Sidechain on Elastos Main Net. Deployment will take place on August 5, 2019, at 1:00AM UTC.

The development of the Ethereum Sidechain and NEO Sidechain concepts officially commenced in August 2018. In June 2019, the code for the Ethereum Sidechain and NEO Sidechain was made open source and deployed on the Test Net. Since then, the Elastos Blockchain Development Team has been rigorously testing both sidechains. As both have been running their respective functions with proper stability and responsiveness, the Elastos Blockchain Development Team has concluded that the development phases for the Ethereum Sidechain and the NEO Sidechain are effectively complete, and both are prepared for deployment on the Main Net.

During the deployment process, wallets, DPoS Supernodes, exchanges, and mining pools will be unaffected. After deployment is complete, the Ethereum Sidechain and NEO Sidechain will undergo trial operations on the Main Net. During trial operations, access to both sidechains will be permissioned, as per the discretion of the Elastos Blockchain Development Team. For community members, it is not recommended to initiate cross-chain transactions to the Ethereum Sidechain or NEO Sidechain during this period.

Code Repositories can be accessed at the links below:

Ethereum Sidechain GitHub Repository:
https://github.com/elastos/Elastos.ELA.SideChain.ETH

NEO Sidechain GitHub Repository:
https://github.com/elastos/Elastos.ELA.SideChain.NeoVM

Note: The Ethereum Sidechain Blockchain Browser will be released on August 5th along with the deployment of Ethereum Sidechain. The Ethereum Sidechain Blockchain Browser’s domain name is ethchain.elastos.org.

The NEO Sidechain Blockchain Browser will be announced separately.

As we continue to build out our core infrastructure, we remain committed to keeping our community fully informed including providing the date for ETH and NEO Sidechains to be fully open to the public.
