ZetaChain’s mission is to serve as a platform for universal access, simplicity, and utility across any blockchain. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of ZetaChain Mainnet Beta — the next phase in our evolution more than two years after ZetaChain started. With over 1.8M community members and 200+ partners, this important milestone allows ZetaChain to massively increase its impact on the blockchain community. Read more about our mission statement.

Brief overview of ZetaChain Mainnet Beta

ZetaChain’s Mainnet Beta is a fully functional network that connects Bitcoin, Ethereum Mainnet, and BNB Chain. Developers can deploy Omnichain Smart Contracts on ZetaChain’s EVM that use the ZRC-20 primitive to connect and orchestrate value and data across all connected chains — without wrapping or locking tokens.

  • Learn more about how to build Omnichain Smart Contracts here.

  • Visit the explorer here to find ZRC-20 whitelisted assets and liquidity caps, managed by the protocol’s governance mechanism.

  • Learn more about the proposed core development roadmap here.

  • Learn more about how the ZRC-20 ecosystem will evolve here.

Enter ZetaHub

ZetaChain Mainnet Beta introduces ZetaHub, an entry point product for users to actively participate with ZetaChain and the ecosystem. The comprehensive portal includes features such as governance, proof of stake, and access to the vast ZetaChain dApp ecosystem. Users will be able to track their on-chain activity in ZetaHub through a rewards system called Zeta XP.

Claim your ZETA

Eligible users can visit ZetaHub Claim to claim their earned ZETA token allocations from the initial airdrop. Some users may be required to fill out a KYC before claiming. Read our airdrop overview to learn more about this airdrop.

In addition to the ZetaChain airdrop, users may receive ZETA from partner wallet campaigns, centralized trading platforms, and other programs.

Get ZETA, Send ZETA, and More Tutorials

Press the Get ZETA button in Hub to see ways you can get ZETA in order to transact on the network. ZETA is an omnichain token that exists on ZetaChain, Ethereum Mainnet, or any connected smart contract chain.

Users can use the Send interface to move ZETA between networks. Here, users can also move ZRC-20 whitelisted assets like BTC and ETH to and from ZetaChain.

For more tutorials, visit our ZetaDocs to learn everything from creating and connecting a wallet to ZetaHub to pooling, staking, earning Zeta XP, and much more!

Enter the XP launch campaign!

To kickoff the launch of ZetaChain Mainnet Beta, ZetaHub presents the first global XP campaign, lasting 30 days. XP is a level-up system and loyalty program based on pure on-chain user activity.

Users will be able to earn XP and increase their level by interacting with ZetaHub through activities such as inviting friends to XP, contributing to core pools, depositing assets, and interacting with ZetaChain apps.

XP-eligible activities will refresh frequently so check ZetaHub for updates so you can climb the global leaderboard. Enter ZetaHub and Earn XP now!

Community Members with Boosted XP

These special user groups get a head start in the XP program:

  • People who participated in the ZetaLabs testnet, including users after August 2023

  • Participants in testnet programs including XDEFI, TokenPocket, Bitget Wallet, and OKX Cryptopedia.

Note, XP boosts for the programs will be added after all data is collected, finalized, and XP calculations are added to addresses.

How ZetaChain apps can join the XP program

In addition to user engagement, the XP program also serves as a launchpad for ecosystem app partners interested in engaging with the global ZetaChain community.

We will release more details about the XP application and onboarding process for apps, including qualifying criteria to submit an Activity for the XP program.

Note, ZetaHub is built to serve as an open primitive to help the ecosystem and apps understand and reward on-chain activity.
