Introducing StrongChain

We’re excited to announce the private Testnet launch of StrongChain, a Layer 1 EVM-compatible Proof Of Authority (POA) blockchain that supports smart contracts and decentralized applications. StrongChain is the foundation of a low-gas blockchain ecosystem where participants can benefit from more aspects of the chain.

Since February 2022, when the StrongChain Light Paper was released, we’ve launched private iterations of many different Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains, deployed smart contracts and DApps on them, tested their performance, and compared them against an Ethereum baseline. Our research revealed why Ethereum is the perfect base on which to build StrongChain into the reward-generating ecosystem we know it can become.

We are designing, prototyping, and testing:

- Reward generating DApps
- Validator Participation
- Utilities (including a public block explorer)
- A token bridge between Ethereum and StrongChain
- An IBC solution
- A decentralized storage solution
- And more…

We will build towards our vision over time, revealing more of StrongChain in each phase.

Release Roadmap

Following is a general roadmap, subject to change. This page will be regularly updated to reflect the current phase and details of that phase.

Current Phase: Private Testnet
Release Date: January 24, 2023 (4th iteration)

In this phase, we are launching and testing smart contracts and DApps in a closed environment.

Democratizing Blockchain

Despite the proliferation of Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchains, decentralization remains an elusive goal. Decentralization - the transfer of control and decision-making from a centralized entity to a distributed network - is easy to talk about, but difficult to achieve. We believe the only way true decentralization can be achieved is in gradual steps. By gradually democratizing validation, value will now accrue to more participants, instead of only benefitting the miners on another chain.

StrongChain will create an economy that will run on resources provided by its participants, who will also be consumers of those resources. In this way, the ecosystem can begin paying for itself, while participants can influence its development, and benefit from its growth.

We believe StrongChain presents an amazing blockchain use-case, while meeting our philosophical and technical goals of democratizing blockchain participation, and laying the foundation for decentralized governance.

StrongChain Rewards

StrongChain has the potential to offer rewards across the entire blockchain stack. Specific details about this will be forthcoming, but bear in mind these details will change and evolve over time as we shape the future of StrongChain together.

Get Involved

If you’re already staking STRNGR in the StrongPool, have Metal NFTs, or NaaS Subscriptions, thank you for your support! You’re already in position to participate in StrongChain. You don’t need to take any action at this time. Details for participation will be published in subsequent phases.

NaaS subscriptions will remain accessible at, connected to the Ethereum network. New products, services and pools will be added to, connected to StrongChain.

We’re looking forward to opening StrongChain DApp development beginning in Phase 3. During that phase, we’ll offer opportunities for developers to apply their skills and creativity to build reward-generating dApps. Grants will be available, as will prizes for Hackathons.

Categories we are already exploring in the StrongChain ecosystem include utilities, finance, health, gaming, insurance, art, education and other industries. Additionally, there are many potential partnership opportunities.
