Jungle Testnet with CryptoLions and EOS Costa Rica

For this episode, we brought on two of our favorite block producers, CryptoLions and EOS Costa Rica. Both of these teams have been heavily involved in maintaining the Jungle Testnet, one of the most active testnets in the EOS ecosystem. They recently ran a number of stress tests to set new performance records for EOSIO software. We spoke to the two teams about a number of different topics: 

  • Background on both teams

  • History of the Jungle testnet and recent updates 

  • Jungle Classic vs. Jungle 2.0 

  • The importance of testnets and what it means for the mainnet

  • How the Jungle testnet got “attacked,” and how the testnet BPs “recovered” the chain 

  • Stress testing the Jungle testnet 

  • New EOSIO transaction throughput records 

  • Transactions vs. Operations on Blockchains

  • How to measure throughput 

  • CPU issues on the network and how to address them

  • Sidechains and sister chains
