This marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of decentralized applications, where Acurast is set to redefine verifiable and confidential computing.

Acurast is birthing a new era by building a decentralized and serverless application platform. This platform boasts an array of runtimes, ranging from mobile secure enclave-powered runtimes, offering hardware-based security, to Zero Knowledge-based runtimes, providing verifiable computation based on ZK-SNARKs and ZK-STARKs with computational soundness. Developers now have the flexibility to switch between these execution environments, customizing them to suit the particular needs or their use cases.

As part of Acurast commitment to Web3 adoption, Acurast has started the journey towards its mainnet, as outlined in its Medium post. Today, Acurast proudly announces the launch of the Canary Pre-Net and invites developers and processors to actively participate in this incentivized Canary network.

Developers and processors can onboard themselves through its user-friendly documentation:

  • Processor Onboarding via the Acurast console
  • Developer Onboarding through the Acurast playground
  • RPC access for integrating wallets and building on Acurast here

Acurast eagerly anticipates witnessing the remarkable projects that will emerge from this vibrant ecosystem. Should you have any inquiries or feedback, do not hesitate to reach out.

In addition to Acurast’s promotional efforts, early participants stand to reap rewards through the “incentivized AirDrop Allocation” outlined in the genesis block allocation.

The pre-net phase is designed to bootstrap the canary network and onboard productive use cases. During this phase, token transfers are temporarily disabled, and tokens can only be acquired by engaging with the Social Engagement Faucet.

Subsequent phases will progressively unlock more of the genesis block allocations, unleashing a plethora of exciting features and opportunities.

What if you’re not a developer or processor? Acurast welcomes all enthusiasts to join the movement by becoming active on our social media channels, spreading the word, and reaping rewards. You can initiate your journey by following the Acurast guide.

Acurast Canary Pre-Net is just the beginning of an exciting journey toward the future of Web3. Join Acurast today, to shape the digital ecosystem.
