Testnet 1.0 ends as Testnet 2.0 unlocks new milestone
Following a successful migration to Testnet 2.0, we’re excited to announce that Mysterium’s Testnet 1.0 is being “switched off” forever.
Our migration began earlier this year, but you can already see the latest network statistics showing the amazing growth of both our node runner and user communities.
We’ve seen healthy organic growth of our node network in particular, reaching 1000 exit nodes and 100+ Tb of monthly traffic coursing throughout.
This continues from our impressive network growth in 2020. In fact, it’s already 2x our 2020 high in just the first quarter of 2021.
We’ve also seen 25% increase in our monthly active user base since the end of 2020.
This graph shows the transition of Mysterium dVPN users from Testnet 1.0 across to Testnet 2.0 over the last three months.
This new milestone keeps us right on track for our product roadmap, easing us into Stage 3.
