MINA prepares for devnet upgrade on April 9

MINA protocol, considered one of the lightest blockchains, is currently counting down to the devnet upgrade. The devnet upgrade on April 9 is the final step in the process to launch Mina’s major upgrade, Berkeley. 

The technical enhancement is focused on three features voted on by the community:

  • Easier zero-knowledge application programmability (Mina Improvement Proposal (MIP) 4)
  • Introduction of a powerful proof system (MIP 3)
  • Removal of a short-term incentive, Supercharged Rewards (MIP 1)

The protocol’s official blog post outlines how contributors have extensively tested and pushed the network to its limit, and MINA is ready for its final stage of testing on April 9. The devnet is an environment designed for experimentation before technical upgrades go live on the project’s mainnet.
