It has been almost a month and a half since the release of the Bifrost POC2 Testnet network on March 21st. During this period, we issued the BNC testnet token, defined the Asgard network test token name ASG, and held 5 AMAs. A total of 2584 new Bifrost members were added to the global community, and a total of 11,285 BNC testnet tokens were issued.

Our followers participate in the block generation of the network by running the Bifrost POC2 Testnet node, and there are also members who use the Dashboard to experience the POC function of Bifrost. Of course, there are a lot of friends who complain that the wallet is difficult to use, the learning threshold is high, and the access speed is slow. Whether it is encouraging or vomiting, we are very happy to see everyone’s attention to Bifrost.

Bifrost is still in the test network stage, and there are many functions in constant iteration and optimization. Dashboard’s positioning is a console that interacts with the Bifrost blockchain, which contains a series of functions such as address management, chain status query, chain operations, RPC examples and so on.

Due to the current test network stage, the iteration speed is relatively fast, and there is no formal joint third-party wallet access. After the Bifrost App and the network are stable, you can use the long-awaited wallet to easily use the various functions of Bifrost.

What is Bifrost?

Bifrost is a Parachain designed to liberate Staking liquidity. Users can convert PoS currency to Bifrost vToken through Bifrost bridge at any time to obtain Staking income and liquidity.

vToken can optimize transactions in multiple scenarios such as DeFi, Dapp, DEX, etc. When vToken is used as a collateral for lending, its staking income can offset part of the interest and realize low-interest borrowing.
