Progress on the mainnet launch sequence

The Swarm Mainnet Launch will be complete on June 21st.

As of June 10, the token contract has been deployed to mainnet. The address is:

With the deployment of the BZZ token, an important milestone has been established.

Shortly, the latest Swarm client, named “Bee 1.0 release candidate”, will be released. It will be tagged version 1.0-rc.

It is important for node-operators to know that updating to this version before distribution of the tokens is not recommended, since the Bee 1.0 release candidate requires mainnet BZZ to fully operate. A public gateway to interact with the 1.0 cluster will also be made available soon and will be accessible via mainnet.ethswarm.org.

Moreover, BZZ has been bridged to xDAI. xDAI was chosen to be the sidechain solution for scaling Swarm Network transactions. The bridged token can be found here:
