A Builder’s Guide to Astar.js
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...

The Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) has added three ethereum addresses to its Specially Designated Nationals And Blocked Persons List (SDN). OFAC alleges the ether addresses are controlled by the Lazarus Group, a cybercrime group that is associated with North Korea. Lazarus Group Behind Axie Infinity Heist
The U.S. Treasury Department's OFAC has added three ethereum addresses that are allegedly associated linked with the Lazarus Group cybercrime syndicate to its SDN list. The addition of the addresses comes a few weeks after U.S. authorities accused the Lazarus Group and North Korean hackers of being behind the $620 million Axie Infinity heist.
As previously reported by Bitcoin.com News, after reports of the hacking emerged, the U.S. government claimed the cybercrime group was part of a group of hackers that spearheaded the Ronin bridge attack that resulted in the siphoning of over 173,000 ethereum tokens. Also, prior to the department's latest update, the ethereum mixing project Tornado Cash revealed it was blocking OFAC sanctioned addresses from using the mixer.
North Korea Sanctions Evasion
In a statement released via Twitter on April 22, the U.S. Treasury Department suggested the blocking of access to funds at the designated addresses would deprive the sanctions-evading North Korea of a vital source of revenue. The statement explained:
OFAC added 3 virtual currency wallet addresses to the SDN Listing for Lazarus Group. The DPRK [North Korea] has relied on illicit ...
