And obviously, we'll have a lot of people from the Voltaire team there to talk about governance. Sam Leathers is going to be there, and Sam is going to do a master class workshop on Sanchonet, which is 1694's testnet. The Hydra team is actually in the office today preparing for RareEvo to talk about a Hydra Master Class where they're going to show you guys how to use Hydra, Mithril, and other technologies together.
Now there's a big open question of alternative clients and blueprints. Okay, so there are some people who want to do a Rust client. I saw on Twitter there's some people that want to do TypeScript. That's great and fine, but the issue is what is the canonical Cardano. What is Cardano? Well, a major innovation that's occurring right now with the CIP1694 work, the Conway era that's being pushed out with sanchonet, is that we actually wrote the specifications for these not in a prose like LaTeX but actually in AGAD.
..and a lot of third party contribution for the HYDRA code base and a nice open cadence as well as everything living in git. So that's what we should aspire for, and it's going to be a lot of fun to move things over. A huge amount of progress as well on CIP1694, we had the workshop in Edinburgh. It was very successful as a closing workshop to finalize a candidate spec and now Sanchonet is underway. That is a very specialized test net specifically to give Bleeding Edge features.
For people to test the rollout of 1694, build against it play, as did reps, kind of like the incentivized testnet and it will connect to wallets via the CIP95 standard, which is right now in the final stages of ratification. So, node 8.2 has just been tagged. And should be working its way this week and next week and that will enable Sanchonet for people to play around with it and throughout the next 6 to 8 weeks you'll see a lot of features roll their weigh in on the Constitutional Committee concept to dRep concept.
There's kind of like 6 major areas of concern for Sanchonet, and there's kind of a mad dash that all the developers are pushing towards to get Sanchonet to a level of functionality where people feel very comfortable playing around with it, breaking that functionality and it's rolling out a lot of new concepts. For example, this is the first release where we have an end to end active specification for all of the Ledger rules and the things that define what the Conway era is the Voltaire era is.
By the way, we're creating something very similar for Sanchonet just to because it's so effective.
And bolt load of stuff to do download sanchonet we'll have a website for it, just like we have for Hydro dot family and obviously all lives in GitHub, just like Hydra does. Can't wait to see what you guys construct and a lot of really exciting things to come. It took a very long time to build all these pieces and all these pieces are now coming together.
