peaq’s ecosystem includes multiple networks in order to ensure the best possible setup for anyone building in it.
An overview of our planned and completed parachain deployments is as follows:
- peaq: deployment on Polkadot (Planned Q2-Q3 2023)
- krest: deployment on Kusama (Planned Q1 2023)
- Agung: deployment on the Rococo testnet (October 2022)
This setup allows us to de-risk software upgrades to peaq on Polkadot in the future as well as test peaq’s economics and social behavior with real scarcity by leveraging Kusama.
peaq aims to be a production parachain in Polkadot. The code running on the peaq mainnet will be vetted through one or more of the other networks listed above. peaq will offer parachain-related functionalities such as XCMP and SPREE, as these features become available.
In advance of deploying to the Polkadot mainnet, peaq will launch krest as a parachain on the Kusama network. krest will offer parachain-related functionalities such as XCMP and SPREE as these features become available.
This testnet is a network hosted by EoTLabs. It features a parachain/relay chain scheme. The goal is to allow developers to test their developments in a shared parachain environment without needing to run their own nodes or network.
