Edgeware is a high-performance, self-upgrading WASM smart contract platform, in the Polkadot ecosystem.
Participants vote, delegate, and fund each other to upgrade the network.
We are giving away >90% of the network to build a strong initial community. See more:
Once Polkadot is live, Edgeware will be the easiest & simplest way to deploy code to the Polkadot networkAbout Polkadot
Edgeware smart contracts are written in Rust and executed in WASM, for an order-of-magnitude speedupAbout WASM
Edgeware's on-chain treasury ensures the protocol will always be funded and maintained, while chain upgrades can be voted inAbout Governance
Edgeware will be a testbed for mechanisms like on-chain identity, quadratic voting, and modular governanceAbout our vision
Edgeware will be launched via a lockdrop, a modified airdrop where participants timelock ETH to receive EDG.
The lockdrop will take place in Summer 2019, and give away >90% of tokens in the genesis block to participants.
Lockdroppers will be able to timelock their ETH for 3 months, 6 months, or 1 year. Participants will get 100% of their ETH back afterwards.
This broad token distribution will bring a wide set of participants into the governance process.
Effective on-chain governance requires new tech to be built: DAOs, economic mechanisms, cryptographic voting systems, and interfaces for collaboration.
Edgeware will build these systems through a process of recursive self-improvement. On-chain governance will be used to choose and fund improvements, and launch them on the network.
