Cardano builder Input Output Global (IOG) shares a recap of milestones reached in February in a thread of tweets.

First, on Feb. 14, the Valentine's Day-themed Valentine (SECP) upgrade went live on the mainnet, commemorating "the love of DApps."

IOG began facilitating the formation and bootstrapping of Cardano working groups in February as well. The ultimate objective was to enable the community to mobilize themselves, work together on decision-making and implement solutions.

Another significant milestone was the Feb. 7 launch of the public testnet for the EVM sidechain proof of concept. Developers can now deploy smart contracts and dApps, connect wallets and test token transfers between test environments.

IOG says it released a blog post by Christian Badertscher, one of the coauthors of the study "Ouroboros Genesis: Composable Proof-of-Stake Blockchains with Dynamic Availability," in response to community interest.

The fourth Plutus Pioneer, which took place on Feb. 20, offered additional features and content as well as a simpler development setup, and it was also unveiled by the IOG Academy.

The team behind Cardano's lightweight wallet, Lace, hosted a Twitter space with Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson and other esteemed community members in the same month.
