Archethic, a blockchain network, has launched the Archethic Lab web portal, featuring a series of tools that help users and developers to join the project’s ecosystem. The website contains links to the platform’s testnet and mainnet beta, regular video tech updates, and all the tools and documentation a newcomer will need to get started.
“We’re embracing the spirit of community-led scalable initiatives with an open invitation to developers looking for an exciting blockchain project to get involved with from an early stage,” said Sebastien Dupont, chairman, Archethic Foundation. “This initiative is led by Web3 builders for Web3 builders. With Archethic’s highly scalable blockchain being perfectly primed for real-world use in high-traffic use-cases such as content publication (or website hosting), mailing solutions, we’re very excited to watch this project evolve as crypto and blockchain are finally being adopted into the mainstream.”
One of the tools that will be of use for anybody interested in supporting the project (not just developers) is the company’s mobile wallet. The wallet supports transactions of its $UCO tokens and is also compatible with NFT transfers on the Archethic testnet.
A GitHub page is available with APKs for downloading a mobile wallet on Android devices. The page also includes a repo for developers to build their own wallets and a beta version of a web app wallet.
The company said no funds are lost should the wallet be deleted from a device. A 24-word mnemonic recovery password is required to re-access the wallet on any compatible device.
The other three tools are aimed at developers looking to get started building on the Archethic blockchain. AEWeb is a tool that helps web developers deploy websites on the blockchain. It includes a decentralized security layer.
The Beacon Explorer is a blockchain explorer that makes it possible to examine the “beacon chains” used to coordinate and synchronize the Archethic network. Archethic uses a unique consensus protocol called ARCH that runs multiple grouped beacon chains in parallel, with each chain being composed of blocks containing a single validated transaction each.
Developers looking to build dApps that interface with UCO will need a way to test their projects. The Archethic testnet comes equipped with a UCO faucet that supplies 100 UCO at a time, strictly for testing purposes. This allows developers to build projects without burning their own funds to validate code.
