We are excited to announce the launch of ZetaChain’s upcoming incentivized testnet dubbed “Athens-3”. This is a huge step in the development of ZetaChain, an L1 blockchain that brings universal interoperability to crypto through its support for Omnichain Smart Contracts.
For this testnet, we’re initially looking for participants with 1.) a strong understanding of running and managing nodes/validators for Cosmos SDK-based chains and/or 2.) developers and technical testers with experience deploying EVM-compatible smart contracts and battle-testing protocols like ZetaChain.
Phases for this testnet includes the following:
Phase 1: Validator setup and network genesis.
Phase 2: Stress and scenario testing.
Phase 3: Security-focused battle-testing.
Phase 4: Maintenance and long-term testnet planning.
We will reward approved and eligible participants who actively contribute to this testnet. More details on the program’s phases, goals, incentives, and precise timeline will be released as the testnet progresses.
To participate in the incentivized testnet, please fill out this form. If you are selected, then we will reach out with next steps to get started. We look forward to collaborating with you and building the future of crypto together!
Note that due to certain restrictions, we will not reward US-based entities for their participation in this testnet. ID Verification/KYC will be required for all reward-eligible participants in this program.
All participation in the testnet is subject to our terms found here.
ZetaChain is the world’s first and only decentralized L1 blockchain with built-in cross-chain interoperability, connecting all blockchains, even non-smart contract chains like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. With ZetaChain’s complete Omnichain toolkit, developers can build true omnichain dApps from a single point of logic, and users can access all of their assets, data, and liquidity in a single place, securely.
Follow ZetaChain on Twitter @zetablockchain and join the conversation on Discord and Telegram. Reach out to email@example.com if you’re building on top of ZetaChain.
