Also, to stay updated with information on any of the altcoin projects, following their Twitter page is helpful, as most development updates are posted on their social media handles; especially for the Crypto Twitter (CT) community.

Cryptocurrency Glossary

Here’s a definition of keywords in this publication:

1. Mainnet: refers to a fully developed and to be deployed blockchain protocol, meaning that cryptocurrency transactions can now be broadcasted, verified, and recorded on a distributed ledger. 

2. Staking: This involves holding funds in a cryptocurrency wallet to support the security and operations of the coin’s blockchain network. In simple terms, staking is the act of locking cryptocurrencies to receive rewards.

3. Testnet: Opposite of mainnet networks, the term testnet refers to when a blockchain or cryptocurrency network is not yet up and running at its full capacity.

A testnet is used by developers to test all the aspects and features of a blockchain network before it is certified ready for the mainnet launch.

In other words, a testnet is an experimental blockchain project, while a mainnet is a completely developed blockchain platform for users to send and receive cryptocurrency transactions.
