In addition to production, Contour manages a pre-production / Test network ("Staging"), that is open for Members to connect to for testing and/or internal training. Members may choose to have multiple identities in Staging, each acting as different roles (Bank, Corporate) in order to facilitate independent end-to-end workflow testing.
The Staging network is where Contour conducts its trials. Members with a dedicated Staging Node are able to conduct transactions with parties who are conducting a trial. Please note that trial members will be represented by generic identities (such as "Bank-c").
