Crab Network Has Won The 59th Kusama Parachain Slot!

Dear community,

We’re thrilled to announce that Crab Network has won the 59th Kusama Parachain slot and has been awarded the Para ID 2229! It’s the second auction that Crab Network has won, and Crab didn’t crowdloan this time.

The current Crab Parachain () lease period is 25-26, and the lease period of the newly won Crab Parachain () on the Kusama auction is 25-32. When the Crab Parachain() lease period expires, we will take lease period, moved it to , and will continue to use the old Crab Parachain () as usual.

About Darwinia & Crab

GitHub | Website | Medium | Twitter | Telegram | Discord

Darwinia is a cross-chain messaging infrastructure, which provides a light client-based, programmable, universal cross-chain messaging network for decentralized applications. Now, we’ve successfully used Darwinia’s light-client cross-chain messaging protocol(LCMP) to bridge cross-chain messages between substrate-based chains, and even between substrate-based chains and EVM chains, meanwhile, Darwinia provides developers with an SDK, so they can easily integrate cross-chain capabilities into their Dapps. This will have profound implications for cross-chain interoperability, and Darwinia as a cross-chain messaging infrastructure will facilitate the building of a hybrid cross-chain network.

Crab is a canary network with real economic value for Darwinia, positioning similar to Polkadot’s Kusama Network, which is a programmable cross-chain platform for Dapps. It is substrate-based, EVM-compatible, and connected to Kusama.
