Celer Network’s Cygnus Alpha-Mainnet Goes Live on Ethereum, Targets Blockchain Gaming Space
The launch of Cygnus, an alpha mainnet has effectively opened Celer Network, a San Francisco-based blockchain startup, for business. According to the company, the market today craves for this “advanced layer-2 scaling platform” even as it takes shape.
With the launch of the Cygnus mainnet, Celer Network is unleashing Blockchain scaling solutions in a totally new dimension. For DApps on the mainnet, the network will offer real-time, zero-fee interaction coupled while allowing swift micropayments and low latency interoperability. This simply means that Celer will serve as a platform for developing user-friendly, responsive DApps for iPhones.
Cygnus’ launch also marks the start of the planet’s first Ethereum-based Generalized State Channel Network. The alpha mainnet is expected to be operational from the day it goes live whereby it will allow its end users to use it and earn free coins on the partner app, CelerX.
Dong, Celer’s CEO, sees it as a way of breaking down the benefits of Blockchain to gamers and app developers. He said that even with the ‘cutthroat’ level of competition in the gaming industry, the network is ushering a new method of building and monetizing apps and games. Players also rack in lots of cryptocurrencies in free in-game rewards, something that benefits them as well.
The network which, almost four months ago, amassed a whopping $4 million worth of startup capital, thanks to an IEO on Binance Launchpad, seems to have targeted Blockchain gaming. The platform’s off-chain solutions, smart contracts, and the new scalable “gateways” have clearly underscored its reputation.
Celer Network, in a post, stated that they are solemn in their quest to allow developers to code other aspects and leave the network handle all that pertains Blockchain, including matching and payment resolution. Integration is a breeze as it needs no prior coding experience. One only needs to add two new lines of code, the whole process taking just 10 minutes!
Meanwhile, Celer Network has Integrated Dai into its layer-2 app Network
The rollout of Eridanus is, however, coming at a time when the network is announcing the formation of a strategic partnership with MakerDAO. Celer Network has recently been growing tremendously, and the new partnership is a testament to that.
This new association will bring Dai, the world’s first Ethereum Blockchain-powered decentralized stablecoins to the network’s layer-2 scaling platform. Also, part of the partnership has seen Celer reward those who download its native mobile app, CelerX, with $10,000 worth of Dai tokens.
Further, integrating MakerDAO into Celer Network will automatically allow app users to conveniently send micropayments and play their favorite eSport games free of charge. As for those new users with no prior experience on how Blockchain works, they will “onboard” and use DApps and Blockchain games without even having first to buy Ethereum.
According to the co-founder of Celer Network, Mo Dong, having Dai at the heart of their operations simply means all their users will no longer have to battle rampant price volatilities. This, he says, will go a great way in pushing their adoption campaign even further.
