“Today, almost one year after we read the Hydra whitepaper [for the] first time back-to-back, we opened the first Hydra Heads on the Public Cardano testnet. This should be the first, which saw the full init, commit, close, & fanout lifecycle. This is a great accomplishment and it’s a pleasure to work with you @Arnaud and @KtorZ.
