Charles Hoskinson, the creator of Cardano (ADA), has revealed on Twitter that Cardano is getting ready for the Shelley testnet. Expected is that the self-node testnet will be released in a couple of weeks.
The Cardano community has a reason to be bullish again. According to the founder of Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, users will be able to experience a mainnet-like experience of the network sometime next month.

In June, the testnet will first be rolled out to a small pool of developers. After that, if no bugs occur, the self-node testnet will most likely be released to the public in July. With that, it seems that the long-awaited Shelley upgrade is almost ready.
The release of Shelley has already been delayed several times due to a complicated development phase. Currently, according to Hoskinson, more than 50 engineers are working full-time on the Shelley project.
It is expected that in the weeks leading to the testnet, Cardano is going to gain formidable momentum.
