Geared toward stress testing the system in a practical, real-world setting prior to public release. Crossfire marks a significant milestone and last step in preparation for mainnet. Participating Validators have the chance to compete with each other while finishing tasks.
In the past year, the Crypto.com Chain Has received enormous support from the community and business partners. Croeseid, the most recent testnet, features a new codebase based on the Cosmos SDK and has achieved great success with 50+ validators deployed and over 800,000 transactions processed.
Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com, said: “With The Mainnet manufacturing dry run, we are entering the last stretch on the path to go-live. The Crossfire contest for validators with $300,000 in rewards is a critical part of stress testing the system before the much anticipated launch.”
The Cosmos SDK, upon which the Crypto.com Chain is built, promotes Scalability, usability and coin interoperability. Cosmos’ inter-blockchain communication (IBC) module allows cross-chain strength transfers and communications that offer strong support for DeFi use cases, a core component of Crypto.com’s product roadmap. Crypto.com Chain mainnet proceeds to embrace Tendermint Core as its own consensus engine, one of the most mature Byzantine-fault tolerant (BFT) consensus motors for building proof-of-stake systems, and its codebase is released on Github here written in the Go programming language.
