Standard Protocol is a multi-chain stable coin protocol that is run by the DAO of STND holders. It uses bridges to move around from network to network and provides a scalable collateralization mechanism with create2. CDP in a form of NFT can be traded as bonds. Those who cannot pay debt with the stable coin can sell their position to people who have stable coins or other desirable assets that the seller prefers and buyers can get collaterals by paying back the seller’s loan.
Standard Protocol tries to overcome the problems of the current overcollateralized stable coin by applying a…
We’re thrilled to announce that we accepted NFTYLabs to our Builders Program. The program is created to support teams that are building products that help further the development, growth, and adoption of the Astar ecosystem. The program is operated by Stake Technologies with guidance from Parity Technologies under the Builders for Builders initiative.
NFTYLabs is the parent company of a suite of products and services dedicated to helping both new and existing NFT ecosystems provide utility functions for the NFTs in their communities.
NFTYConnect is the flagship product of the NFTYNetwork and NFTYLabs designed to facilitate utility functions for companies…
Astar is a community-driven project, and we need you to help grow our ecosystem. We have created an open community program where every community member can join and support the Astar ecosystem. You can collect points and receive rewards through dApp staking if your contributions are valid. Joining the community program as a community member is also the perfect way to show us that you are the Ambassador we need for the Astar ecosystem. It’s also the ideal way to educate yourself about Astar and the Polkadot ecosystem.
The community program consists out of two tracks:
Covalent, the leading provider of indexing solutions for blockchains, has integrated with the Astar ecosystem, expanding the availability of data on the platform and simplifying the experience for developers who need reliable, high-quality data.
Covalent provides a unified API to bring full transparency and visibility to assets across all blockchain networks. Its dataset supports 25B+ transactions, 30,000+ price feeds, and 200,000+ smart contracts for querying.
Covalent is an ELT data pipeline that ingests all on-chain data which comes from blockchains. …
OnFinality, a leading blockchain IaaS (infrastructure as a service) platform, is providing a reliable and scalable infrastructure to Astar. The Astar community can now build applications on high-performance RPC archive nodes in the Shiden Network (and future Astar Network) for free.
This service is currently online and can be connected to via these endpoints;
OnFinality’s mission is to support all blockchain organizations in the world by providing core infrastructure so they can focus on their core businesses.
Polkadot’s Cross-chain Message Passing protocol, known as ‘XCMP’, is a game-changer and unique feature in the Polkadot ecosystem. XCMP allows consensus-based message passing between a parachain and another parachain.
The XCMP is no longer conceptual: in February of this year, we collaborated with Acala to undertake a token transfer between our native chains. This successful ‘XCMP-lite’ implementation, was just the first step. Now, the Kylin network is working with Astar to build on top of that work for the next evolution of the XCMP implementation and test out cross-chain calls for full functionality. …
Having service partners is essential to running the best smart contract (dApp) hub on Polkadot. We rely on our partners, with their knowledge and infrastructure, to provide the best services for developers building in the Astar ecosystem. Today, we would like to announce Bware Labs and describe how they support the growth of the Astar ecosystem.
The goal of Bware Labs is to build a decentralized platform where full node owners and endpoint users such as developers and organizations can collaborate in a secure and trustful manner.
As a user of Bware Labs, you will be able to obtain endpoints…
Recently, we have launched our Builders Program to help further the growth, development, and adoption of the Shiden Network by supporting teams that are building on Shiden and, in a later phase Astar ecosystem. Stake Technologies head the program with guidance from Parity Technologies under the Builders for Builders initiative.
After receiving the proposal from Subscan, the community had the opportunity to comment and add feedback through our forum. On July 16th, we started the voting. The proposal passed with flying colors. Congrats! 👌
Having service partners is essential in running the best smart contract (dApp) hub on Polkadot. We rely on our partners with their knowledge and infrastructure to provide the best services for the developer building in the Astar ecosystem. Today, we would like to announce Pinknode and describe how they support the growth of the Astar ecosystem.
Pinknode aims to be the gateway to the Polkadot ecosystem. Pinknode empowers developers by providing node-as-a-service solutions by removing an entire layer of inefficiencies and complexities and accelerating products life cycle.
Astar has chosen Pinknode as one of its service partners. This partnership entails…
Shiden wins the third auction on Kusama with over 138k KSM contributed during the Crowdloan! Over 4300 enthusiasts joined the Crowdloan and will be rewarded with Shiden native token $SDN. Thanks for all the support!
It all started in April 2019. Plasm Network was born (now Astar Network). After two years of intense developments, two successful lockdrops, delivering 5 of 6 grants from Web3 Foundation and building a strong community. Shiden Network successfully becomes a parachain on Kusama and producing its first blocks. Becoming a parachain wasn't possible without our community, investors, and trust in our development path.
