New on Tanssi: Lightning-Fast Appchain Deployment with Dancebox Snaps & Advanced MetaMask Integration

Tortola, BVI – January 23, 2023. Moondance Labs, the team building the Tanssi Network, has rolled out a series of exciting new capabilities for Dancebox, Tanssi's TestNet. These updates promise to take the appchain deployment experience to new heights.


Leading the charge is Dancebox Snaps, a game-changing feature that accelerates appchain deployment to just minutes. Complementing this, the MetaMask integration offers streamlined interactions within the Polkadot environment during appchain deployment. Additionally, significant design improvements have been made to the dApp, focusing on improving both user interaction and overall experience.


These updates, shaped by community insights and a dedication to innovation, represent a significant step forward in the Tanssi ecosystem, meeting the changing needs of appchain developers.

Dancebox Snaps is the optimal solution for quick, trial-based deployments, aligning perfectly with projects that require rapid testing environments. This feature significantly reduces the time to deploy appchains to less than 10 minutes, marking a departure from more time-intensive traditional methods.


Key features of Dancebox Snaps include:

  • Rapid Deployment: Developers can now set up appchains in minutes, experiencing a level of speed in deployment that was previously unattainable.

  • Short-lived Appchains: Appchains created with Dancebox Snaps are designed for a 48-hour duration, ideal for concise testing phases and swift iterations.

  • Flexible Options: To cater to a range of project needs, Dancebox Snaps offers extended-period dedicated appchains for more in-depth testing.


The process for deploying appchains with Dancebox Snaps is streamlined into three simple steps, making it user-friendly for both seasoned developers and those new to blockchain development. This feature not only expedites the setup but also allows developers to concentrate more on their core tasks of innovation and development.


Developers looking to leverage Dancebox Snaps are invited to visit Dancebox, the Tanssi TestNet, and Tanssi's documentation site for a comprehensive guide and further resources.


Deploy Appchains in a Substrate Environment Using Your MetaMask Wallet


A noteworthy addition to Dancebox is the integration of MetaMask. This feature enables developers to deploy a Polkadot wallet and control it directly through MetaMask, significantly simplifying the process of deploying appchains in a Substrate environment.


This integration is particularly advantageous for the extensive MetaMask user community, making it easier for them to engage with the Substrate ecosystem. With MetaMask’s wide adoption – boasting over 10 million users globally – this improvement significantly enhances the user experience for a large segment of blockchain developers.



Upgrades Aligned with Tanssi's Mission: Appchain Deployment Made Easy

In line with the commitment to ease appchain deployment, the Tanssi team has introduced a sleek, responsive redesign of the Tanssi dApp. This refreshed design not only enhances visual appeal but also boosts functionality across all devices. Whether on a desktop or a mobile device, users are guaranteed an optimal experience.


Central to Tanssi's mission is simplifying the appchain deployment process for developers. In this spirit, every appchain powered by Tanssi evolves into a ContainerChain, tapping into an extensive suite of appchain infrastructure services. This evolution significantly cuts down on deployment times. By handling the complexities of appchain infrastructure, Tanssi allows developers to focus on key priorities: growing their communities, refining their code, expanding their market presence, and delivering exceptional user experiences.

About the Tanssi Network

Tanssi's appchain infrastructure protocol is built to simplify and accelerate appchain deployment using ContainerChains. When an appchain connects to Tanssi, it becomes a ContainerChain, accessing a developer-friendly and permissionless environment that provides infrastructure as a service. As a result, appchains can be deployed in just hours— a significant leap from the typical months-long process. On top of this, Tanssi also benefits from the shared security and native interoperability of the Polkadot relaychain. Learn more at tanssi.network.
