Router Protocol launches testnet for Router Chain

Key takeaways

  • Router Protocol’s Router Chain launches on testnet.

  • Router Chain aims to increase Web3 adoption by solving existing problems in cross-blockchain communications.

  • The testnet is available on Ethereum (Goerli), Polygon (Mumbai), Avalanche (Fuji), Base, and BNB Chain blockchains. 

Router Protocol’s Router Chain launches on testnet

Router Protocol – an infrastructure enterprise enabling communication between blockchains, announced on Wednesday, May 23rd, that it has launched the testnet of its Layer 1 blockchain.

In a press release shared with Coinjournal, Router Protocol revealed that the primary purpose of Router Chain is to increase Web3 adoption by solving existing problems in cross-blockchain communications, such as security, scalability, decentralization, and a lack of true-blue cross-chain dApps. 

Router Chain grants developers numerous benefits, including;

  • Infra-level Flexibility: With Router Chain, developers are no longer limited to a single type of bridging infrastructure. They can develop IDAPPS – apps that are interoperable by default – using Router’s stateful infra (OmniChain framework) or stateless infra (CrossTalk framework), depending on their requirements. 

  • Modular Security: With Router Chain, dApps have access to three layers of security – at the protocol level, bridge level, and application level. This implies that dApps can implement their own security measures on top of the baseline security model provided by the Router Chain.

With Router Chain, developers also have access to other features such as;

Testnet launch supports five major blockchain networks

The Router Protocol team added that testnet  Mandara also allows external validators to participate in the network for the first time. This is an incredible milestone for the protocol as it makes it possible to achieve true decentralisation. 

Router Protocol added that it has already started onboarding external validators, with a goal to onboard over 60 during testnet to secure its network. 

The team revealed that the testnet launch supports five blockchain networks: Ethereum (Goerli), Polygon (Mumbai), Avalanche (Fuji), Base, and BNB Chain. Router Protocol would add support for the Near blockchain after the testnet launch.
