+ Adaptive IBC
Next Generation Multichain Web3 Infrastructure
The Octopus Network is a multichain Web3 infrastructure that empowers appchains with flexible and affordable shared security, trust-minimized interoperability, and more.
By building a flexible marketplace for decentralized trust, $NEAR Restaking not only bolsters cost-effective shared security for Octopus appchains but also amplifies value throughout the NEAR ecosystem.
Expanding Appchain Offerings with Cosmos SDK
Octopus 2.0 diversifies the Octopus appchain offering to include Cosmos SDK builds for appchain developers. All Cosmos SDK appchains can be secured by both $OCT and $NEAR. In exchange for securing the appchains, $OCT and $NEAR stakers will receive appchain rewards.
Octopus Network aims to broaden the reach of the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol beyond the Cosmos ecosystem. With adaptive IBC, we enable seamless and trust-minimized interoperability between the NEAR ecosystem, Cosmos, Polkadot, and Ethereum, unlocking vast potential in the blockchain landscape.
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.
Octopus Network Appchains are interoperable out-of-the-box with Cosmos, NEAR, Ethereum, Polkadot, and any adaptive IBC enabled blockchain.
The Octopus Network provides a complete infrastructure set for Appchains including RPC Gateway, Appchain Explorer, Appchain Indexer, and Appchain Archiver.
The Octopus Network acts as a meta-community for hatching Appchain-native communities within the Octous Network and NEAR Protocol Ecosystems.
The Octopus Network is a multichain, interoperable cryptonetwork for launching and running Substrate-based, EVM compatible, application-specific blockchains, aka appchains.
