EVM launch event — #NFT

After extended testing on Shibuya with, Shibuya graduated from their stress test! Shibuya is the Shiden’s parachain testnet with EVM functionalities which is the closest to the Shiden mainnet. Shibuya has almost the exact chain specifications as Shiden and creates the best test environment for developers who want to launch their dApp on Shiden mainnet.

Shiden Network is now ready for the first dApps writing in Solidity or Vyper to be deployed. To celebrate the launch, we partnered with CryptoMoments! They created the first NFT marketplace on Shiden for our community to buy a limited and unique created NFT. Their unique art is generated from on-chain transaction data related to the moment in blockchain history. The specific crypto moment is represented as a blockchain transaction. The algorithm generates a fractal utilizing data from the actual transaction.
