• Router Protocol has launched the testnet of its Layer 1 blockchain, Router Chain.
• The primary purpose of Router Chain is to increase Web3 adoption by solving existing problems in cross-blockchain communications.
• The testnet is available on Ethereum (Goerli), Polygon (Mumbai), Avalanche (Fuji), Base, and BNB Chain blockchains.
Router Protocol Launches Testnet for Router Chain
Router Protocol, an infrastructure enterprise enabling communication between blockchains, recently announced the launch of the testnet of its Layer 1 blockchain, Router Chain. This new network aims to increase Web3 adoption by solving existing problems in cross-blockchain communications such as security, scalability, decentralization, and a lack of true-blue cross-chain dApps.
With Router Chain, developers are no longer limited to a single type of bridging infrastructure. They can develop IDAPPS – apps that are interoperable by default – using Router’s stateful infra (OmniChain framework) or stateless infra (CrossTalk framework), depending on their requirements.
Router Chain grants developers access to three layers of security – at the protocol level, bridge level, and application level – so they can implement their own security measures on top of the baseline security model provided by the chain. Other features include MetaMask Compatibility Cross-chain Meta Transactions Acknowledgments and Refunds Decentralized Read Calls Transaction Batching Atomicity Expiry Timestamp
Testnet Launch Supports Major Blockchains
The testnet Mandara allows external validators to participate in the network for the first time which makes it possible to achieve true decentralisation. It is supported by five major blockchain networks including Ethereum (Goerli), Polygon (Mumbai), Avalanche (Fuji), Base and BNB Chain blockchains as well as over 60 external validators onboarded during testnet phase for added security measures.
Routers Protocol’s launch of its Layer1 Blockchain – Router Chains – provides developers with numerous benefits such as infralevel flexibility and modular security along with other features like metamask compatibility and transaction batching making it easier for them to create web3 applications that are interoperable across multiple blockchains securely.
