    With today's launch of the Shimmer mainnet, Tangle Bay is also offering its usual services from the IOTA mainnet.

    Tangle Bay offers the following services for the Shimmer mainnet:

    In addition, the start of the Shimmer main network (requires at least SWARM v2.7.1) is performed automatically for all SWARM node operators. In addition, the entry node and the snapshot source from Tangle Bay are directly available there.

    A special thanks to our two donors from this month IBTORBI and ockerocker , whose support keeps Tangle Bay's services going.

    Hi, tut mir leid das dieser Fehler leider derzeit sehr oft auftritt. Ich werde versuchen heute die Skripte für das builden der Binaries umzuschreiben, sodass dieser Fehler nicht mehr auftritt. Nachdem nun auch die deadlocks von Watchdog gefixed sind, sollte dann sobald ich die Skripte angepasst habe, der Server automatisch die Version bekommen.


    • Added Hornet (Shimmer) tool for generating/validate the genesis-snapshot*
    • Fixed watchdog configuration menu
    • Fixed pow settings for Hornet (IOTA)
    • Fixed a parsing bug for Hornet (IOTA) and the participation plugin
    • Fixed an app deadlock in watchdog
