Stargate Week 9 September 9th

Executive Summary

Big week for the Stargate initiative with the launch of the first stargate-1 testnet.

This testnet has been humming along nicely for last week. We've seen both Akash and Agoric projects adopt the stargate codebase for forth coming release. Blockscape, Everstake and IRIS have joined Iqlusion in running stargate-1 validators. Jack and the Akash team are hard at work updating the IBC relayer to run on the testnet.

We've encountered, documented and worked with the SDK and IBC team to fix a number of bugs encountered with running work-in-progress stargate code.

We are looking forward to stability and better documentation of the legacy amino interface before we start on boarding larger developer teams.
