What is Octopus Appchains?

An Octopus Appchain is a Substrate-based blockchain that is made for a specific decentralized application. Once integrating the pallet pallet-octopus-appchain, the Appchain will be geared up to anchor off the Octopus Network.

  • Security: Appchains in the Octopus Network can scale their security with demand using LPoS (Leased Proof-of-Stake), decreasing both the time and capital required to launch.
  • Interoperability: Octopus Network Appchains are interoperable out-of-the-box with Ethereum, NEAR, and any Substrate IBC enabled blockchain, such as Polkadot and Cosmos.
  • Infrastructure: The Octopus Network provides a complete infrastructure set for Appchains including RPC Gateway, Appchain Explorer, Appchain Indexer, and Appchain Archiver.
  • Community: The Octopus Network acts as a meta-community for hatching Appchain-native communities within the Octous Network and NEAR Protocol Ecosystems.
