Working as a market leader in the crypto community, Binance DEX has announced the launch of a brand-new and advanced testnet of the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem. The testnet will involve the launch of two chains named Chapel testnet and Ganges testnet. The chains will be launched on July 9, 2020. The official Binance DEX Twitter post read:


According to the official blog post, two chains will be unveiled by the Binance team, which will be branded as:

  • New Chapel testnet of Binance Smart Chain designed to substitute Rialto.
  • New Ganges testnet of Binance Chain created to substitute Kongo.

The new testnet will be available for access by the community only after it gets successful in clearing the comprehensive testing mechanisms. Once the team is done with all the procedural requirements by July 10, they will inform the users by another announcement. Binance has urged its users to have backup support of all the important data on Rialto testnet as they will lose it after the latter is replaced by the new chains.
