There are many cross-chain terminologies, but the real challenge is the connection between the heterogeneous chains. The Progressive Launch of Darwinia Mainnet has reached the third stage: the bi-directional “Darwinia-Ethereum Bridge.”
The Ethereum-Darwinia bi-directional Bridge is able to complete the cross-chain verification without custodial middlemen and reduces the gas costs of cross-chain transactions by implementing a Super Light Client on the chain.
Darwinia Network is a cross-chain bridge network that builds on Substrate. It is the Golden Gate Bridge of the cross-chain ecology. It provides the safest general bridge solution, connecting Polkadot, Ethereum, TRON，BSC and other heterogeneous chains. Its main application areas include Defi, cross-chain NFT trading market, games, etc.
Darwinia bridge solution integrates technologies, including super-light client, zero-knowledge, and optimistic verification mechanisms.Darwinia bridge distinguishes from other bridges in terms of quality and how decentralized the bridge is, could carry high-value cross-chain asset transmission.Darwinia was also included in the Cointelegraph research report as critical cross-chain infrastructure.
The ERC20 version of RING and KTON and the RING deposits can be transferred to the The assets available on the mainnet can be used to participate in staking. The user locks his assets first in the Backing Module on this network which is secured by the smart contract. No one can extract it.
The Progressive Launch of Darwinia Mainnet has reached the third stage: the bi-directional “Darwinia-Ethereum Bridge.”(D2E Bridge).
Features of D2E Bridge are:
- Trust free
- Low Gas Consumption
The Super Light Client does not need to save every block header. The bridge relayers submit the required block header to it to meet the data verification requirements when needed. Darwinia to Ethereum Authorities guarantees the accuracy of the block header submitted by bridge relayers. Darwinia used an additional set of Authorities to accomplish the authorization. The Council elected the Authorities. The Council will decide the increase or decrease of members.
Ethereum Backing is a module that returns the issuance of Darwinia assets on Ethereum. Simply put assets transferred to Ethereum that need to be locked in this module. When people want to transfer their assets to Ethereum through the D2E Bridge, the first step to do is to lock the assets in the Ethereum Backing module.
D2E bridge also applied several security modules including the Daily Cross-Chain Transfer Limit and the Guardian Module.
Darwinia Mainnet Transfer Open:
Darwinia Mainnet Transfer is now live！
After the successful launch of the bidirectional Darwinia <-> Ethereum bridge, Darwinia Mainnet progressive launch has come to the final the 4th milestone stage: Darwinia Mainnet Transfer open.
After voting through the governance module, the mainnet transfer will go live at block height #1870068, which is around 1 pm on February 4, 2021 (2021-02-04 05:00:00 UTC ).
Now, users will be able to freely transfer Darwinia assets between different accounts according to the following tutorial, which also marks the full operation of the core functions of the Darwinia Mainnet.
About Darwinia Network:
Darwinia Network has won a high reputation and recognition along the way to build the decentralized cross-chain bridge protocol. In 2020, Darwinia was written in Polkadot light-paper as one of the friends of Polkadot and Substrate. And Darwinia was also selected to joined Substrate Builder Program and Web3.0 Bootcamp, and in recognition of Darwinia Network’s outstanding performance in the Substrate Builder Program, Parity officially awarded the Level 2 badge to Darwinia. Products and tools developed by Darwinia won 3 W3F Grants. Polkadot Founder Gavin also highlighted Darwinia as “Projects to watch.”
