Radix Mainnet Launch Timeline - “Bootstrapping Epoch”

The period following the genesis of the Radix Public Network on July 28th will be a special “bootstrapping” epoch lasting at least 14 days. 

There is no rush to start swapping eXRD for XRD, staking, connecting nodes, or registering validators during this bootstrapping epoch. During this period, everyone will be equally “first in line” when the bootstrapping epoch ends and normal epochs (of approximately 30-90 minutes) begin. 

The bootstrapping epoch will allow XRD token holders and node-runners time to choose which validators to delegate to, and set up their validator nodes, respectively.

For a full breakdown of how this period will work, please see the blog article Radix Mainnet Launch Timeline.
