I have run successfully several testnet nodes, I think from 0.12.0. Not big problems. Even though I happen to install my first Linux OS ever in life (Ubuntu 18) and I had not really big issues in order to run the node. I even mined a few blocks on the testnet using only CPU. If I could do this that means you are doing a good job on the software and documentation.
I am a first hour ICO investor, I’ve been following the project most of the time, congratulations to all Æ team.
The only thing I can think of about now is I would like someone to develop an OpenCL miner for this Cuckoo Cycle protocol. I would like to point my whole farm to this project. Unfortunately, all of my GPU are AMD. Of course I am telling this because I cannot mine Æ but in addition because this would help the network to be more decentralized as more GPU would be supporting it.
I know there hasn’t been even 48h since the mainnet launch but, well, this is something it could be developed before and I am anxious to mine and the sooner the better is the profit.
Consider making really good tutorials about oracles, about state channels, about Sophia language, about the naming system, mention why they are so useful and how to use it on the Æternity network. Make several examples on where and when to use them, even if the examples implies repeating some content.
Dedicate time training the embassors with full information, I was considering some time ago to be one of them but I have to understand these things very well in order for me to organize an event in my city.
I know there has to be a lot more things to develop, but if they are ready to use now that the mainet has been launched, it’s finally time to think about a massive marketing educating people.
I hope all the things run well. Don’t abandon the project thinking it is almost “done”, in fact, the baby has just been born, there’s A LOT of work to do still.
Thank you and congratulations again.
