Barnacle template, Octopus Network’s Appchain node template, is designed for Developers to quickly start their Octopus Network Appchain project.
Barnacle is a minimal working template based on the Substrate node template.
The appchain advantage
security
Security
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.
interoperability
Interoperability
Octopus Network Appchains are interoperable out-of-the-box with Ethereum, NEAR, and any Substrate IBC enabled blockchain, such as Polkadot and Cosmos.
infrastructure
Infrastructure
The Octopus Network provides a complete infrastructure set for Appchains including RPC Gateway, Appchain Explorer, Appchain Indexer, and Appchain Archiver.
community
Community
The Octopus Network acts as a meta-community for hatching Appchain-native communities within the Octous Network and NEAR Protocol Ecosystems.
EVM & IBC
Barnacle EVM
Octopus Network's Barnacle EVM is a Substrate-based EVM compatible development template based on Parity’s Frontier pallet which allows Web3 teams to deploy dApps written in Solidity as Appchains in the Octopus Network.
Substrate IBC
The Octopus Network’s Substrate IBC pallet allows Developers to create Substrate-based blockchains that interact in a trust-minimized way via the secure exchange of assets and data between ecosystems.
Appchain pipeline
Appchain registration in the Octopus Network is open.
Once registered, Appchain development proceeds through several stages in the Appchain Pipeline
• Audit • Voting • Booting
Appchains are then free to integrate with the immense NEAR DeFi Ecosystem in designing their token launch.
