Liz Bancroft-Turner, the Project Manager at Charles Hoskinson’s science and engineering firm InputOutput presented the latest updates in Cardano’s Shelley Project on Tuesday. Here, she gave a recap of the developments made in the project, explained the road ahead and talked about test and quality plan methodology used to keep the progress in check.

She began by speaking about the goal of the Shelley Project, which is to become fully decentralized and autonomous. Turner stated that there are three main work streams that will help the team deliver decentralization. These streams are incentives, delegation and networking. The IOHK official added:

“For incentives, this is about encouraging stakeholders to follow the protocol andassure that the system runs smoothly for delegation this is about allowing users to hand over their right to sign blocks to a third party and for networking it’s about enabling the infrastructure to support decentralization.”

In the video update, she also included a test and quality plan where she mentioned three areas under the subject, namely, test strategy, test execution strategy and test management.

The test strategy will determine the rules on which the testing is based on and will also include the end and start dates of the project testing. Other factors that fall under this are entry/exit criteria, the creation of the test cases, scheduling, data strategy and more.

Test execution strategy will involve details such as the description of how the testing will be performed, the implementation to fix issues and more. Lastly, Turner’s presentation stated that the test management sector will carry the plan of handling the logistics of the testing and suchlike.

She concluded the update by explaining the role of testing and quality plan. Here, she said that the plan covers the testing methodology of the project, which further assists the team in meeting its ultimate objective.

Bitcoin [BTC], the world’s largest cryptocurrency, saw a significant surge earlier this month, helping the coin break strong resistance at $5,000 and $5,200. Following the great fall of the king coin in early 2018, the Bitcoin ecosystem was struggling with scalability and technological issues, eventually leading to the hard fork.’s Cobra, who is also the co-owner of, has always maintained that Bitcoin was the cryptocurrency to look out for through his various Twitter bouts with prominent personalities in the cryptoverse. Due to his strong, unbridled support for Bitcoin, he has often trashed altcoins for their low market dominance.

In a new Twitter thread, Cobra spoke about the “biggest threat” to the Bitcoin ecosystem. Even though many crypto-enthusiasts believe that governments and technological issues were the biggest threats to the king coin, Cobra had a completely different opinion.

According to the Bitcoin maximalist, users have the potential to signal Bitcoin’s doom. His tweet read,

Though most Bitcoin supporters usually support his opinions, this tweet was met with a lot of resistance. Twitterati swarmed the thread in an attempt to prove him wrong. A user named @MrHodl alleged that this could not be true as Bitcoin had “no community.” He added that this, in turn, prevented toxicity in the ecosystem.

Cobra replied to the tweet stating,

“I think there is a community, it’s just not fully representative of everyone with a stake in Bitcoin. Most holders are quiet and not too familiar with what’s going on. There’s people with 1000+ BTC and they don’t engage at all with discussion platforms, just lurk.”

Some Twitter users took it as an attack on Bitcoin investors and opposed Cobra’s stance. A user @CarstenBKK commented,

“Maybe I am lost in translation. What do you wanna tell us? That you are part of Bitcoin network of people owning/using it, but you are just disgusted by the idea, that the network is called community in the sense of direct human collaboration and affection to the groups ideals?”

Previously, Cobra had accused Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Square Crypto of pandering to Bitcoin users, while also suggesting that the crypto project was merely a way to bring in more users for Dorsey’s CashApp. His tweet read,

“Gotta respect how hard @sqcrypto is pandering to Bitcoiners. Very clever how @Jack has embedded himself in the community; in return the community promotes @CashApp, which gives that service a small but dedicated and activist group of early users.”
