FAQ

Astar is a Substrate-base smart-contract platform. This is not an ERC20 or BEP20 token.

Astar Network team does not conduct private sales, ICOs, IEOs, or IDOs. The only way to get tokens is an upcoming Polkadot PLO (Parachain lease offering).

Shiden is the Astar canary network, a parachain of the Kusama Network (Kusama, in turn, is the Polkadot canary network). It is a testing ground for experimentation, research, and development. Teams can test their solutions in realistic economic conditions first on Shiden, identify and fix bugs, and then transfer a fully working product to Astar.

Initially, the Astar Network project worked under the name Plasm Network. However, it decided to change the name to Astar because of the almost complete accord with the L2 scalability solution for Ethereum (Plasma) and avoid confusion.

The initial total token supply is 7,000,000,000 ASTR tokens for the Astar Network and 70,000,000 SDN tokens for the Shiden Network. The annual inflation is  10%.
