B2 Development Update — Final Steps

We are coming closer to the B2 launch. Most specifications have been set in stone and most features are finished and developed. The launch date for mainnet will be announced soon.

Initial Setup

Now is the time to make sure the launch of B2 will go as smooth as possible. We at Antimatter Labs have decided to set out following points:

  • B2 Validator set will initially start off only with nodes controlled by our team
  • Tentatively, each node requires 1 Mil. $MATTER locked
  • Smart Contract deployment is reserved for addresses on a whitelist. This whitelist is to be managed by Governance.

While B2 will start in a centralized manner, we are planning to add multiple third-party validators. In the coming days we will open an application form for anyone interested in validating on B2 to gather $MATTER rewards.

Similarly we are looking to open applications for builder teams dedicated to build on top of B2. More details on selection criteria will follow shortly.

Other Progress

The bridging discussions with CelerNetwork have finally concluded and we are ready to bridge $MATTER onto B2. The documentation of the bridge architecture will be released soon.

We will use Blockscout as our block explorer:

If you want to test out B2 on your own you can get your testnet tokens here:

🔗faucet-test.antimatter.finance

⚠Tokens are not transferable to Mainnet and only for testing purposes!⚠

Information you need to connect to B2

  • RPC Node: rpc-test.antimatter.finance
  • Chain ID: 20221

Our first B2 native project Quanto is currently in the testing phase. Frontend and backend are completed.

We are also creating a frontend for easy governance participation.

Accompany us on our journey, we keep building!
