Start Experimenting with AppChains on Shimmer

We have an exciting update to share: we have just released AppChains on our cloud-based Web3 infrastructure platform. What this means is that anyone can start experimenting with running dApps and smart contracts in private smart contract chain environments on top of the Shimmer Network.

Next, we’ll introduce you to the world of AppChains and share more about our new release. As a limited-time offer, you can launch your AppChains on the Shimmer Testnet for FREE. Start experimenting with AppChains and create your account at the HAVN Launchpad.

What are AppChains?

AppChains are independent blockchains that are designed to accommodate a specific set of applications or organizations, to maximize performance, scalability, and privacy for building decentralized applications on the blockchain.

AppChains are hybrid chains, meaning that they run on Layer 2 while being securely connected to the Layer 1 blockchain. Our AppChains run on the Shimmer network which is optimized for hybrid chains supporting native cross-chain interoperability.

As we move towards a multi-chain future, Appchains are instrumental in creating interoperable Web3 applications. AppChains are revolutionizing various industries from finance and supply chain to healthcare and gaming.

With this short introduction to the topic, we continue by sharing more about our exciting new release.

Introducing a Fully Automated Setup for Launching AppChains

With the new release you can enjoy our fully automated setup for launching AppChains on the Shimmer Testnet. Testnet AppChains are private smart contract environments that run on the Shimmer Testnet and share validators hosted by HAVN Labs. What they enable is that developers can start developing and testing their smart contracts in a private smart contract chain environment before launching their full-blown AppChain. As a limited-time offer, launching and managing AppChains on the Shimmer Testnet is FREE.

Launching your Testnet AppChain is easy. Once you have your account, you can log in, and navigate to the AppChains section. You can create a new Testnet AppChain by pressing the “Launch AppChain” button.

Start experimenting with Testnet AppChains before launching your fully customizable AppChain

After filling in the basic information of the chain (name, wallet address) you can launch your AppChain, and get access to the chain’s information in the details view. From this view, you can easily connect your AppChain to your Metamask wallet.

Manage your chain and connect to an external wallet with ease

In order to start running your dApp and smart contracts in your AppChain you will need to implement the corresponding endpoint to your application. To learn more about using API keys and endpoints in decentralized applications you can refer to this article:

How to Build dApps Faster with Web3 APIs

After experimenting with Testnet AppChains, you can continue launching your fully customizable AppChain on the Shimmer Network. With AppChains, you can manage your own validator committee and consortia, power your chain with a custom token, and use add-on modules like the Blockscout Explorer and subgraphs for added utility. Contact our experts to learn more and share specific requirements for your AppChain.

Discover the Endless Possibilities of AppChains

Whether you’re a developer, business leader, or blockchain enthusiast, there’s a wealth of opportunities waiting for you. With Testnet AppChains, you are well on your way to launching your own fully customizable AppChain. Join us in shaping the future of blockchain.
