Tanssi's TestNet, Dancebox, Now Features Staking

Tanssi, an appchain infrastructure protocol, has upgraded its TestNet, Dancebox, with staking capabilities. This update allows users to participate in delegated staking with block producers, or collators as they’re known in Polkadot, to actively engage in block production. Importantly, it also enables the Tanssi community to experience staking firsthand and contribute to the network's decentralization path. This addition marks an important step forward in the countdown to the Tanssi Main Network launch, expected later this year.

At its core, Tanssi is engineered to simplify and quicken the deployment of appchains. Connecting a chain to Tanssi transforms it into a modular appchain, primed and ready within a developer-friendly, permissionless ecosystem. This ecosystem is complete with all essential infrastructure for seamless operations. The setup boasts a decentralized network of block producers enhancing security, along with straightforward integrations with crucial tools such as bridges, wallets, and oracles, making it possible for appchains to be launched much more swiftly.

Since launching last year, Dancebox has markedly reduced appchain deployment times. The Tanssi team's ongoing work focuses on improving developer convenience, the efficiency of tools and services, and maintaining interoperability, decentralization, and security. Each TestNet update paves the way for the Tanssi Main Network, ensuring it will be robust, secure, and user-friendly from the start.

Decentralization from the Ground Up: Staking in Tanssi

Decentralization is at the core of Tanssi, anchored by a broad network of block producers. These producers are crucial for securing the platform, ensuring its continuous operation and upholding Tanssi’s commitment to resist censorship.

Staking, currently in its testing phase for feedback, plays a crucial role in selecting block producers. This approach not only makes the selection mechanism more straightforward but also incorporates protocol-level rewards. Essentially, it streamlines how block producers are chosen, while simultaneously rewarding those who participate in the staking process.

This inclusive approach to staking lets users support network security and decentralization, tying their efforts to Tanssi's overall health and longevity. It builds a strong community of stakeholders engaged in the platform's success.

The Further Role of Block Producers in Tanssi

Becoming a block producer in Tanssi requires not just robust technical equipment but also a deep understanding of technology. Their role is crucial, extending beyond merely enhancing the network's strength and reliability. They form a core part of the infrastructural services Tanssi provides to connected appchains.

Block producers ensure the network runs smoothly and secure the connected appchains. Their effectiveness is supported by a dynamic block producer rotation system, which evenly spreads out the workload. This approach aims to lessen the risk of any issue that could endanger the network and decrease the chances of slashing. By adopting these strategies, Tanssi maintains constant service, enhancing the security and steadiness of appchains.

Thus, Tanssi becomes a dependable and safe environment for blockchain development, keeping appchains protected from interruptions and running smoothly. The performance of block producers is vital in guiding Tanssi toward a stable and forward-looking future.

Go Stake!

Staking is now active on Dancebox, allowing the Tanssi community to engage in staking with DANCE tokens. These are TestNet tokens, so they don't carry real-world value, but they're essential for enhancing and testing the network. Ready to start? Go to apps.tanssi. network/staking. Need some help?
