Symbol's public main network (MAINNET) is scheduled for launch on January 14th. A public test network (TESTNET), though, is available for developers to test their applications which can then be easily moved over to MAINNET after Symbol's launch. TESTNET specifications, documentation and tooling may still be subject to variations although they are expected to be minimal so close to the launch date. Hackathon participants are free to use TESTNET and move onto MAINNET once it becomes available.
