Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK, said that the company didn't want to publish a final release date for the Shelley mainnet until all of the risks surrounding it were mitigated.
In a video update, Hoskinson said that once the Byron reboot and the release of the Shelley Haskell testnet are completed the company will be able to confidently set a release safe for its staking era.
The release date for Shelley still not completely "De-risked".
Shelley, the era of the Cardano blockchain set to bring about staking, was supposed to be released on mainnet at the end of February.
Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of Cardano's parent company IOHK, assured the community that it won't be long before Shelley sees the light of day.
In a Twitter video update, Hoskinson explained that while the infrastructure to release Shelley was all there, the company still wasn't 100 percent sure about whether they'd be able to launch it smoothly.
Hoskinson also noted that the company is currently around 75 percent confident that it could release Shelley within the next two months.
For Shelley to be released on mainnet, Cardano will have to go through two major milestones, Hoskinson explained.
Apart from the delay of the mainnet release, everything else at Cardano is "On cadence" according to Hoskinson.
In line with its educational efforts, IOHK will also be updating both the Cardano documents and the official Cardano website, which will be redone to contain ample information about the network and its components, Hoskinson said.
