I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of IOST testnet v0.5 - Codename 'Everest.' bit.ly/2yRFDQ8 Everest brings the IOST blockchain functionally online in a real network environment and supports advanced smart contract features, testnet nodes, and more with an average throughput between 7,000-8,000 transactions per second. The IOST blockchain is still in its early stages and we encourage developers to test our network. We will release specifics for a bug bounty in the near future. Happy Hacking!
