Cardano: Midnight Blockchain’s DevNet Set to Go Live on November 13
Midnight, the data-protection blockchain operating as a sidechain of Cardano, has announced the imminent launch of its devnet. The Midnight team, renowned for its commitment to data protection and innovative blockchain solutions, unveiled in a recent tweet that the Midnight devnet is set to go live on November 13.
The Midnight devnet, as described in an earlier blog post by Input Output Global (IOG), the team behind Cardano, is positioned as a crucial stepping stone in the journey towards the platform’s official launch. This devnet is not just another testing environment; rather, it’s a sandboxed space meticulously designed to empower developers. Within this space, developers can experiment, troubleshoot, and fine-tune their applications without any impact on real users or assets.

Designed with dApp developers in mind, the Midnight devnet holds the promise of facilitating the creation of applications that integrate cutting-edge features such as data protection, shielded swaps, and smart contracts. Additionally, developers will have the opportunity to provide feedback, recommend changes, and actively participate in shaping the future of the Midnight platform.
The first enrollment phase for the Midnight devnet is deliberately limited to 100 development teams. This strategic decision by the Midnight team aims to ensure that each participating team receives individualized support, fostering a collaborative and responsive environment. As the devnet progresses and matures, more development teams will be invited to join, expanding the community and the pool of expertise contributing to the platform’s growth.
The announcement of the first round of Midnight DevNet intakes at the beginning of November has generated palpable excitement within the blockchain and developer communities. The limited enrollment slots are expected to fill up rapidly, with eager developers keen to explore the possibilities offered by Midnight’s unique approach to data protection and smart contracts.
One of the standout features of the Midnight platform is its use of zero-knowledge cryptography, a sophisticated technique that combines elements of private and public computation. This, coupled with its integration as a sidechain of the Cardano blockchain, not only enhances the utility of Cardano but also opens up a myriad of new use cases with a focus on data security and privacy.
