A Builder’s Guide to Astar.js

Astar.js is a powerful and versatile tool for interacting with the Astar blockchain. It is a TypeScript library that provides developers with a simple and intuitive interface for building decentralised applications (dApps) on top of the Astar network. One of the key features of Astar.js is its modular design. The library is composed of several individual packages, each of which provides a specific set of functionality. This allows developers to use only the packages they need, reducing the overall size of their dApps and making them more efficient. One of the most useful packages in Astar.js is the API package. This package provides developers with access to the Astar API, which allows them to query the blockchain for information, submit transactions, and interact with smart contracts. The API package also includes support for popular JavaScript libraries like React and Vue, making it easy to integrate with existing web applications. Another important package in Astar.js is the Signer package. This package provides developers with a secure and user-friendly way to sign transactions on behalf of their users. The Signer package uses a combination of hardware-backed keys to ensure that only authorised users can sign transactions. This makes it ideal for dApps that need to manage sensitive information, such as financial applications or voting systems. In addition to the API and Signer packages, Astar.js also includes several oth...

New HRMP Channels Have Opened Between Equilibrium and Astar Network

Get ready for the native movement of the ASTR, EQ, and EQD tokens between chains. Throughout the history of blockchains, interoperability and multi-chain applications are considered the holy grail of Web 3.0. With the Polkadot ecosystem of parachains and cross-consensus messaging (XCM), not only do we have multi-chain assets, but we can leverage functional interoperability. At Astar Network, this is the key to creating the next generation of innovative dApps and further progress Web 3.0. By opening HRMP channels with Equilibrium, we are starting a new chapter in our mission. — Value for Astar. — By opening more channels on Astar Network, we are preparing to bootstrap the launch of ink! contracts and begin developing new ways to leverage the powerful XCM format that Polkadot offers. Our Wasm builders have new possibilities with Equilibrium’s growing suite of products: cross-chain markets, lending/borrowing, and fluid xDOT crowdloans. We will introduct two new assets of Astar Network. EQ is a powerful token designed to be used across the Equilibrium ecosystem and has been integrated with leading infrastructure teams like SubWallet. With the launch of EQ governance and new liquidity mining programs this quarter, we are excited to bring this asset to Astar. Equilibrium’s USD-pegged stablecoin, EQD, is another Polkadot-native stablecoin. It is overcollateralized and minted against a basket of assets on the Equi...

Why WASM Smart Contracts are the Future

WebAssembly (WASM) brings a new type of smart contract that is gaining popularity due to its many advantages over traditional smart contracts written in languages such as Solidity. WASM is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine that is designed to be faster and more efficient than traditional interpreted languages. As a blockchain developer, I have had the opportunity to work with both WASM smart contracts and Solidity contracts, and I believe that WASM smart contracts offer several advantages over Solidity. Here are a few key reasons why WASM smart contracts may be the better choice: Performance: One of the biggest benefits of WASM smart contracts is their improved performance compared to Solidity contracts. WASM contracts can execute much faster than Solidity contracts, which can lead to lower costs for users and a better user experience. This is especially important for applications that require high levels of throughput, such as decentralized exchanges or games., Language flexibility: Another advantage of WASM is that it can be written in a variety of programming languages, including C, C++, and Rust. This allows developers to choose the language that they are most familiar with, or that is best suited for the task at hand. In contrast, Solidity is a proprietary language that is specific to the Ethereum platform., Stronger security: WASM smart contracts have the potential to be more secure than Sol...

Astar Network and Brushfam Join Forces

Together we will increase the number of ink! dApps deployed in 2023!. — November brought big news for the Polkadot ecosystem. Among others, we would like to mention the beginning of a partnership agreement between Astar Network and Brushfam. Let’s go into a little more detail to see why this is important for us and the ecosystem as a whole. The development of ecosystems depends on a number of factors, including the quantity and quality of projects. This means not only financial and marketing prospects but now, above all else, safety and sustainability. Brushfam values all of these factors. There are more than 450 projects in Polkadot, each at a different stage of development. The rate of new ones dropped significantly in 2022 due to market sentiment. At the same time, as notable Web3 players rightly point out — the bear market is a great test of ecosystem strength. Those who continue to work and build their projects even with dwindling investment support will survive and grow. They will own the market when it finds itself in the green zone. We share an interest in bringing these projects to Astar Network. Guided by this, ecosystem leaders continue to invest in getting new projects up and running, passing new projects through the rigorous millstones of audits by specialized technological companies. In this regard, working with Brushfam is a logical step for Astar Network in furthering this strategy. The Brushf...

Cross-Virtual Machine: Creating a Portal to the Future of Smart Contracts

Introduction - A lot has happened in 2022. The entire Web3 industry broke new ground regarding technical achievements, solving real-life issues, and becoming the breeding ground for industries we’ve never seen before. Of course, we’ve also seen many incidents and events from which the industry should learn and improve. Saying that 2022 ended with a bang would be an understatement in the Web3 space. However, technology can only grow, and experiencing these events only helps the builders know what works and doesn’t. At Astar Foundation, we’ve been working hard to create the foundation of the future, regardless of outside influences that are happening now. And today, I am proud to introduce one of our most important features to achieve the Astar Vision; the Cross-Virtual Machine (XVM). This article will cover the role of smart contracts in Web3, the issues we see in progressing dApp development, why we created XVM, how XVM works, and, finally, what the future has to present. — WASM Smart Contract VMs - WebAssembly (WASM) is a message format that the WebAssembly virtual machine can read for interpreting WASM byte codes. Strictly speaking, WASM refers to the message format that is compiled from a higher-level language in order to communicate with the system in a virtual environment. But for the sake of simplicity, when I say WASM in this article, this will refer to both the WASM as a binary and the virtual machine...

Astar Network CEO: Webassembly Smart Contracts Are Going to 'Pull a Lot ...

    Ethereum is almost universally credited for kickstarting the Web3 revolution after it brought to life the concept of smart contracts. However, some in the Web3 community, like Astar Network's Sota Watanabe, believe the protocol cannot 'build the innovative future of blockchain alone.' In addition, some critics point to the language obstacle which they argue makes the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) a less-than-ideal place to build.Webassembly Smart Contracts 'Will Accelerate the Adoption of Web3' It is this and other limitations of the EVM that led to the creation of an alternative known as Webassembly (WASM). This alternative is said to be a virtual machine of choice for developers, engineers and academics that are frustrated with the EVM. According to Watanabe, for Web2 developers that want to migrate to Web3, WASM seems like a logical choice because it 'supports a wide range of languages with native performance and high portability.' To learn more about WASM, News reached out to Sota Watanabe, the CEO of Astar Network, a multichain smart contracts platform. In his written responses to questions sent, the Astar Network CEO offered his thoughts on Webassembly and the role it will play in accelerating the adoption of Web3.
