Hello, r/cryptocurrency, thanks for having us for another AMA!
Many of you may be wondering about the new banner you've seen live on this subreddit, which is about Cartesi Rollups on the mainnet and the launch of our first DApp – the Honeypot. Curious to hear what’s all this about? We'll be here answering your questions on Friday, September 29, from 1 pm UTC until around 3 pm UTC.
Cartesi is an app-specific rollup protocol with a virtual machine that runs Linux distributions, creating a richer and broader design space for DApp developers. Cartesi Rollups offer a modular scaling solution, deployable as L2, L3, or sovereign rollups, while maintaining strong base layer security guarantees.
Introducing Honeypot: The First Cartesi Rollup DApp on Mainnet
Honeypot 🍯 is now live on the Ethereum Mainnet! Take your shot at hacking it and see if you can win 35,000 CTSI (and counting – the amount will grow based on compounding 8% weekly allocations from the Cartesi Foundation).
Honeypot is a DApp designed to allow developers to challenge the security of Cartesi Rollups. It is not designed for users to interact with.
Being the first Cartesi-powered DApp on Mainnet, Honeypot highlights Cartesi architecture and opens a new chapter for the Cartesi ecosystem. As we test and fortify Honeypot, it boosts the confidence of developers (and users!) in the security of Cartesi's tech, making it ready for more DApps holding real assets.
If you’re a web3 builder, you can jump straight into Honeypot’s Github repository and follow the instructions to start poking around with the DApp. If you don’t consider yourself a web3 builder, stick around to learn more about it and see if someone is able to hack it…
We have several Cartesi contributors present to answer your questions today:
