March and April have been busy for the Raiden team. In this update, we will briefly walk you through the progress with regards to overall development progress, developer experience improvements, conferences, hackathons, new joiners and more!
Development & General Updates

The work done includes design, integration with the Raiden Client, deployment of our services smart contracts and tests. Furthermore, substantial work went into stabilizing the Raiden Client and fixing bugs. The latest release candidate additionally got battle-tested by hackers using the Raiden API at the ETHCapeTown hackathon.
- Collaboration: Raiden will soon be available on DAppNode, allowing users to conveniently run a Raiden node with minimal effort. DAppNode is a simple, easy and self-empowering system designed specifically for hosting P2P clients for DApps, VPNs, etc. If you already want to get started trying DAppNode for other nodes like Ethereum or IPFS, you can download it here. Also check out DAppNode’s tweet storm to learn more about our collaboration.

Please also feel free to give us feedback should you miss anything by sending an email to developer[at]raiden.network.
- Testnet support: The Raiden smart contracts are now deployed on Goerli testnet, a proof-of-authority cross-client testnet, supporting Parity Ethereum, Geth, Nethermind, Pantheon, and EthereumJS clients. The Goerli testnet syncs in a few minutes and is very convenient for testing purposes. ...
