Pre-Alpha testnet reset
According to the communication passed through Scroll’s official Twitter account, the team is set to conduct the scheduled Pre-Alpha reset to introduce exciting optimization and improve its throughput levels. The reset will occur on Jan. 9. Every Scroll user will integrate the new protocols into their wallets to continue using the platform.
Requirements for the reset
Users will use the following new set of URLs in the RPC endpoints to interact with the new Pre-Alpha testnet after it becomes operational.
Upon completing the reset, users will be required to reset and remove the previous Scroll networks from the wallets to do away with the old protocols before integrating them again.
The company announced that integrating all the users to the newest Pre-Alpha version would take place after the reset, leading to the rebuke of the early iteration. The formerly released documentation will remain valid except for the above URL changes.
Scroll has also provided a contract deployment demo to help users be acquainted with the upcoming advancements. According to the tweet, the company will continue to provide updates on the changes in the core protocol.
The project has also assured users there is no need to panic or take action. Any required action will be after the reset.
On the reset day, the blockchain will lose all the previous data because it will require a complete start from scratch. Users’ accounts will not disappear from the system, but they will need to reset a wallet to use the accounts in both Scroll networks.
The Scroll Pre-Alpha testnet will be open to the users after fully integrating into the blockchain. Currently, it is open to a small pool of testers to check its stability before progressive adoption.
