Rootstock testnet goes live

RSK Labs has announced that Rootstock’s testnet, called Turmeric , is going live. Rootstock will bring smart contracts to Bitcoin in the form of a two-way pegged sidechain. This is a kind of extension of the Bitcoin blockchain, by linking a blockchain with more or other functionalities to Bitcoin (read more about this here). As a result, Rootstock is not a separate blockchain for smart contracts with its own digital currency, such as Ethereum, but Rootstock builds on Bitcoin.

The Rootstock testnet is intended for developers to test the different applications that can be made with it. The testnet will not be available to everyone initially, but will be available at a later date.
