We're moving to the latest Hooks testnet to get ready for launch. Hosts should check out this GitHub announcement for more details and begin preparing for the switch.
The registration for the third iteration of the testnet will be open in the next seven days. As such, users have enough time to reinstall the Evernode software and migrate to the new build.
To run the software required for Hooks v3 testing with Evernode, crypto enthusiasts need a computer on Ubuntu 20.04 64 bit with at least 2 GB RAM and 4 GB free disk space.
As covered by U.Today previously, the third phase of testing is of paramount importance for XRPL Hooks. While Hooks v2 testnet stress-tested the permissionless system, Hooks v3 is set to emulate mainnet performance.
Who is eligible for airdrop?
The Evernode team also shared the details of its airdrop campaign for the participants of the previous testnet iteration. The participants should preserve host addresses and secrets by activating special files.
The activation of Hooks, basic smart contracts for XRP Ledger, is among the most anticipated milestones for the XRP community. It will make XRPL a programmatic blockchain and give a significant boost to its DeFi ecosystem.
The mainnet activation of this crucial function is expected as soon as in Q3-Q4, 2023.
At the same time, necessary Web3 tooling is already available on XRP Ledger, including the likes of escrows, multi-sigs, NFTs and decentralized crypto exchanges (DEXes).
