Interacting with Wasm Smart Contracts on Astar Network using TypeScript and Astar.js
WebAssembly (Wasm) is a binary instruction format designed as a portable target for the compilation of high-level languages like ink! and Ask. In the context of blockchain, Wasm smart contracts are self-executing agreements written in a language that compiles to WebAssembly, allowing them to be executed on the blockchain in a highly efficient and secure manner. Astar Network provides an alternative to the more traditional Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) based smart contracts by supporting Wasm contracts. This offers greater flexibility, better performance, and a broader range of supported languages. Ink! is a Rust-based domain-specific language (DSL) designed for writing smart contracts on the Substrate and Polkadot platforms. It was developed by Parity Technologies to make it easier for developers to create secure and efficient smart contracts that compile to WebAssembly. The ink! language builds on Rust’s safety features, such as its strong type system and memory safety, to reduce the risk of vulnerabilities in smart contracts. Using ink!, developers can create custom smart contracts tailored to their specific use cases and requirements. These contracts can then be deployed to Astar, Shiden and Shibuya Networks, enabling a wide range of decentralized applications (Dapps) and use cases. Interacting with contract requires Weight. For ink! the term Weight refers to the resources used by a contract call. It’s important for s...
Leading Japanese Snack Food Maker Calbee Inc.
Leading Japanese Snack Food Maker Calbee Inc. to Deploy its Evolving Potato Chip NFTs on Astar Network - Tokyo, Japan / April 12th, 2023 / Astar Network, the smart contract platform for multichain, today announced that Japan’s leading potato chips and snacks company Calbee Inc. will issue evolving NFTs on the Astar blockchain as part of a new promotional campaign, “NFT Chips”. Calbee’s products can be found in thousands of retail stores across Japan, and the name resonates with most Japanese. With Calbee’s NFT Chips Campaign, consumers who buy a pack of Usu-Shio, Consomme-Punch or the immensely popular Nori-Shio potato chips will be able to claim a free, evolving Potato NFT by participating in its origami-like game “Ori-pake”. The game requires players to follow the instructions printed on the package and fold it in a very specific way, much like an origami, then confirm they have done it by scanning it with Calbee’s smartphone application “Lbee Program.” Potato chip lovers will have until May 31st to join the campaign, and evolve their NFTs. Astar Network CEO Sota Watanabe said, “I am very excited to see this use case on Astar Network. Calbee’s chips are probably the most consumed chips in Japan and I am sure that everyone knows this product. Through this campaign, I would like to make the future where Japanese people are using Astar Network without knowing what blockchain is. We will keep doing our ...

What is ink! and What’s New in Version 4.0?
What are eDSLs? First, let’s go over a bit of background: EDSLs are Embedded Domain-Specific Languages, which are small programming languages embedded within a host programming language. EDSLs are designed to be used for a specific domain or problem such as smart contract development, with syntax and semantics tailored for that domain, making it easier to read and express solutions in the form of code. The use of eDSLs can lead to more concise and expressive code, as well as increased productivity and reduced errors. EDSLs can also provide a higher-level abstraction than the host language, which can make it easier to reason about and optimize code. The State of Blockchain eDSLs When we think of smart contracts, usually Solidity and the Ethereum Virtual Machine come to mind, which makes sense due to their large suite of tools, well established developer community, and proven history. In terms of adoption, Solidity’s popularity is ahead by a landslide in comparison to other eDSLs such as ink! but it’s important to understand the reasons why that is the case, and how building Wasm smart contracts using ink! can help developers scale past EVM, and drive more Web3 adoption. As Solidity and the Ethereum Virtual Machine environment have matured and adoption has reached critical mass, users and developers have discovered several choking points which have transformed the theoretical possibility of scaling and UX issues into fu...
Wasm Launch Day: April 6
Ready to launch Wasm on Astar! April 6th marks our network's most important technical update–bringing high-performance Wasm smart contracts to Astar mainnet. We’re hosting a virtual celebration with the entire Web3 community, called Wasm Launch Day. Join Sota and Maarten, along with Polkadot developers and leading infrastructure teams to discuss how Wasm will revolutionize blockchain! First, take a second to RSVP for Wasm Launch Day here. Now, let’s learn what’s in store for the launch of Wasm smart contracts on Astar mainnet. — Wasm Launch Day. — So what will happen? Well, a few things make April 6, 2023 a remarkable moment for the ecosystem. We will enable Polkadot ink! smart contracts on Astar Network, making us the first parachain to support a stable Wasm environment. Software developers can now use Rust programming to build their projects and ideas on Astar.

Astar Network Launches Collaborative ink!ubator Bounty Program to Accelerate Wasm Use-Cases
Astar Network has joined forces with Parity and other curators from the Polkadot ecosystem to launch the ink!ubator Bounty Program, designed to provide foundational support to builders while stimulating development of new ink! projects, open-source templates and tools, and smart contract auditing opportunities for Polkadot’s native Wasm runtime environment.. — Parachains on Polkadot are the unique unlock that enables the network’s shared security and native interoperability to be utilized by a diverse variety of dApps. This has been demonstrated with smart contract focused parachains in particular, which currently lead the network in terms of adoption and activity. While this trend will certainly continue, there is still a largely underutilized opportunity to create more sophisticated and user-friendly applications through Polkadot’s Wasm compatibility and native smart contract language, ink!. As one of the leading teams pushing Wasm and EVM smart contract environments that allow developers to deploy dApps with ease, Astar is committed to bettering the infrastructure around Wasm and ink! within the Polkadot ecosystem. We see this as a huge opportunity to both iterate and innovate on the limited functionality of the EVM, and provide a unique edge to developers looking to build the next generation of dApps. As it stands, Polkadot has yet to take full advantage of its superior technical infrastructure and, consequent...

Decentracademy #1: Building Reliable Infrastructure with a Mesh Network
Connect to any dApp from anywhere! Our mesh network distributes the infrastructure that allows you to access the blockchain. The goal is to create a network of nodes that is resilient to attacks and single points of failure. This article is the first in a series of publications to discuss the importance of decentralization on Astar. More information is presented at the end of the article. — What is the decentralization of infrastructure?. — We are familiar with the decentralization of consensus. That is the basic shift from the original packet-switching network through peer-to-peer networks to currently developed blockchain-based solutions. A decentralized infrastructure is important, too–it must be open, distributed, and shared. A mesh network means that your access to the blockchain does not rely on a single RPC node provider. Instead, the entire network is now cloud-agnostic. Plus, the network can continue to scale in a new way as bare metal servers are incorporated into the mesh. — What is Astar mesh network?. — Astar mesh network is a peer-to-peer (P2P) model to create a secure, shared environment of RPC nodes for you to interact with the network. The nodes send traffic between themselves rather than through a central server. This mesh network enables us to increase security and scale efficiently. We can add nodes without overloading the network, and make connections with the shortest path ...

|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, Bitcoin.com 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. Watanabe also explained why Astar Network is supporting both the EVM and WASM.
