The Exscudo's EON Blockchain Testnet is launching today and I will be setting my access up when I get out of work later today. Exscudo's blog reads:
"EON is a flexible new generation blockchain technology created by Exscudo to gain independency from the third-party developers. It addresses typical blockchain problems of low transaction per second bandwidth and extensive memory usage by the whole blockchain platform. EON is the fuel that empowers the whole Exscudo ecosystem, enabling integration and proper functioning of all services within a joint network.
Testnet is the early version of EON blockchain. Our developers already did the internal testing, but a lot still have to be done until the launch of the main net. Public testing of the blockchain functionality is another important step in the building of EON platform. As we already mentioned, testnet will have several stages. Now is the first one, and the starting functionality available for the users is limited to transactions testing. "

I have not gone overboard with ICO investment, but I have entered a few and one of the ones that I think is promising is Exscudo. The development team behind it is quite competent and they are meeting their deadlines, which is a great sign. About 50 developers have been working on Exscudo and the key members of the dev team have solid experience in development of financial services and products (note, this sentence was paraphrased from their website).
Exscudo is a nextgen financial system, their goal being to make entry into the cryptocurrency market and use across it easier and more seamless. There will be accompanying wallets, a trading platform/exchange, trading data/charts, etc. Their goal is to get many large investment firms onboard and gain mass adoption. The Testnet will be useful in pointing out any potential bugs (just like Steemit beta does), as well as allow a glance into how the network functions, it's current utility and state, and to gain a greater understanding of where in the roadmap they currently are.
I recommend looking at it if you are not already part of the ICO and for developers like myself, if nothing else this will give you more insight into the innovations that are rapidly occurring in the blockchain space. If you have any questions for me, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
