The network will allow the Joint Layer 1 Task Force to synergize efforts with DApp developers.
Rex Harrison, aka Rexyz, a senior member of TerraCVita, an independent Terra Classic development group, has disclosed that the group is exploring the idea of creating an infrastructure test network (testnet) for the Terra Classic network.
Rexyz disclosed this in a tweet today, noting that the testnet would allow DApp developers and validators to test and contribute to the efforts of the Joint Layer 1 Task Force. Consequently, he expects it would reduce compatibility and operational issues after upgrades are released.
The developer launched a Twitter poll to gauge the community’s perception of the idea while requesting interested community members to volunteer their services to develop the proposed testnet. At press time, with over 17 hours left, the poll had received 224 votes. Notably, 76% of respondents support the idea, and 12% are interested in participating in the development.
@TerracVita are considering building an infrastructure testnet so dApps and validators get the chance to test out and contribute to the JL1TF development of L1 code to reduce issues before release.
Should @TerracVita do this, and would you help?
If you want to help DM 🙏

TerraCVita’s latest plan follows consistent Terra Classic upgrades from the Joint Layer 1 Task Force. They have churned out two successful upgrades in less than two months. Notably, the last release allowed Binance to resume its voluntary burns of Terra Luna Classic (LUNC), sending over 8 billion LUNC to the dead wallet last week.
For context, the team is tasked with conducting essential upgrades on the Terra Classic network for Q1 2023. To this end, the community earmarked over $141k in community pool funding to be paid out to team members in installments upon completing set milestones. As reported, the team is already ahead of schedule and will likely add more features.
Meanwhile, at the same time, TerraCVita recently revealed that they are working on a new Terra Classic wallet in addition to the Terraport project. Recall that the group raised about $2 million in private sales for the Terraport project, a decentralized finance (DeFi) focused project that will introduce a long-awaited Terra Classic decentralized exchange (DEX).
All of these indicate that development on the once-broken blockchain is moving rapidly, with the proposed testnet poised to achieve coordination between Layer 1 developers and project builders.
