  • I’m voting to close this question because it is about the legacy-network and it is a good idea to keep only Shimmer/ShimmerEVM and latest IOTA Chrysalis questions Commented Apr 24, 2023 at 14:05

Ternary is in the scope from day one. In fact cfb is working on this since many years. Here is a quote from cfb on the nxt forum (from 2014) :

We can count from the 30th of April 2014 when the name "Jinn" came to my mind - https://nxtforum.org/pub-crawl/rfc-project-'jinn'-(processor)/msg14306/#msg14306...

Or from the summer of 2012 when I wrote the ancestor of Jinn emulator (a framework called "Black Heart")...

Or from the autumn of 2010 when I rewrote server code from C to Java (for MMORPG "Apocatastasis")...

Or from the autumn of 2004 when I wrote first lines for the server part of my MMORTS (forgot its name)...

There is no a moment when I started working on Jinn.
