Release a version of IOTA 2.0 leveraging a first implementation of OTV as the consensus mechanism onto the Devnet.
Upcoming goals

Incentivized Testnet

In research
A testnet with an incentivization model to promote faster development, bug fixing and ecosystem growth.

Improve Congestion Control

In development
Move the scheduler component to the end of the data flow.

Improve Rate Setter
