1/ After working for forever in silence, we are excited to announce the Iron Fish Testnet.

Iron Fish is a new cryptocurrency that takes no shortcuts on privacy and usability. ✨

2/ Every transaction in Iron Fish is protected using the strongest privacy mechanism known — zero-knowledge proofs and the Sapling protocol.

Interested? Run a full node today! 🥳 ironfish.network/docs/onboardin…
Discord 👉 discord.gg/kpKeGkA3
3/ Privacy isn’t just important, it’s essential to crypto’s success. It’s not a feature or a product — it’s a requirement.

SSL was controversial in the 90s, now it’s the standard. Private crypto transactions will be as ubiquitous as HTTPS is today.
4/ Your entire life happens online (shopping, meetings, birthdays, and now, even funerals) — with all your data logged, analyzed, and sold.

Privacy protects you. ❤️
5/ People outside of crypto are shocked when they find out every transaction is stored forever in plaintext for the world to see 🤯.

How can we build a future world economy if every nefarious actor sees everything we all do?
6/ Fortunately, 2021 has been a great year for privacy 🔥. Signal installs shot up 4,200%. ProtonMail saw a 3x in usage. DuckDuckGo’s growth has become exponential.

The world is also ready for a private cryptocurrency platform.
7/ A core belief at IronFish is that privacy and ease-of-use are not in opposition. Users and developers deserve both.

Our codebase is TypeScript + Rust, so the world's 1M JavaScript developers can contribute.

Soon we will make it possible for anyone to run a node in a browser.
8/ Anyone (yes, you too!) can now run and mine a full Iron Fish node for the testnet.

Just 𝚋𝚛𝚎𝚠 𝚝𝚊𝚙 𝚒𝚛𝚘𝚗-𝚏𝚒𝚜𝚑/𝚋𝚛𝚎𝚠 && 𝚋𝚛𝚎𝚠 𝚒𝚗𝚜𝚝𝚊𝚕𝚕 𝚒𝚛𝚘𝚗𝚏𝚒𝚜𝚑. Go ahead. We’ll wait.
9/ Our vision is for Iron Fish to become a shielded layer for many more assets, even ones on different chains, and provide a platform for true digital cash. 🙌

10/ We didn’t take this journey alone. Huge thank you to our amazing angels and investors. 🙏
