Celo Update - April 15, 2020
The Celo Baklava network successfully launched last week. The genesis validators bootstrapped Baklava without any cLabs validators for the first time.
The first release candidate network for Mainnet (Release Candidate 1 or RC1) will go live on April 22, 2020.
If there are no issues identified during the ramp-up process, RC1 will officially graduate into the Celo Mainnet on or around May 13th. If there are bugs that prevent RC1 from graduating into Mainnet, a new build will be created to restart a new release candidate.
