Taking to Twitter, Hoskinson said the Shelley upgrade would come in different phases and that the first block was produced in the friends and family stage of the process. Following this stage, the next phase will be the hybrid phase. With hybrid, users will be able to upgrade from Byron to Shelley. If you read our Cardano news a few days ago, you would know that Cardano launched the Byron reboot as the foundation on which Shelley will be built.

After hybrid is launched, the next launch would be the Cardano Shelley mainnet which would allow people to stake their coins on the Cardano network. These coins will be used as collateral and the users will be allowed to use the blockchain and receive rewards for it at the same time. Meanwhile, another major milestone they IOHK has announced ahead of the Cardano Shelley mainnet launch is the Daedalus wallet which was released a few days ago.
