Roadmap Terms

Better understand the milestones in our roadmap with these simple explanations.

Mintlayer Glossary Lines
Mintlayer Glossary Testnet
TestNet

The testnet is test blockchain network that is used during testing and development. The testnet allows development teams to carry out tests without affecting the operation of the original network. Testnet coins do not have any monetary value.

Mintlayer Glossary MaiNet
MaiNet

The mainnet - or main network - is a fully functioning blockchain that has been tested, developed, and deployed. It is running on its own network with its own technology and protocol. In the mainnet, all transactions are actively being broadcasted, verified, and recorded on a digital public ledger.

Mintlayer Glossary Atomic Swap
Atomic Swap

An atomic swap is an exchange of cryptocurrencies from different blockchains. The swap is conducted between two entities without a third party’s involvement, with no centralized intermediaries like regulated exchanges, and gives token owners total control.

Mintlayer Glossary Lightning Network
Lightning Network

The Lightning Network is a payment protocol that is layered on top of Bitcoin. It allows users to make or receive payments from each other. Transactions processed through the Lightning Network are faster, less costly, and confirmed more quickly than those on the standard Bitcoin blockchain.

the next evolution of Bitcoin.

Mintlayer Glossary DSA Consensus
DSA Consensus

Dynamic Slot Allotment, or DSA, is Mintlayer’s Proof of Stake consensus protocol used to ensure all nodes on the network agree on the state of the blockchain.

Mintlayer Glossary Node
Node

A node is a device or devices that hold a copy of the distributed ledger that is the main foundation of blockchain. They are communication points with the purpose of verifying the validity of each succeeding batch of network transactions called blocks.
