Build on Astar

Why build on Astar?

Astar is a interoperable smart contract platform providing native access to both the Polkadot and Ethereum blockchain ecosystems and supporting both Wasm and EVM environments on its Layer 2 scaling and Parachain-based networks.

Astar Network Key Features:

✅ Stable & scalable blockchain APIs
✅ Flexibility to deploy dApps on the platform and ecosystem that best suits their needs, while retaining interoperability with others.
✅ Familiar Tools and Libraries (Remix, Hardhat, Open Zeppelin)
✅ Social & biometric login and recovery (Google,, LINE, Kakao, Banana)
✅ Gasless payments (Gelato, Safe)
✅ NFT checkout with credit/debit cards
✅ Onramp / offramp solutions (Banxa, Transak)
✅ Interoperability between dApps & other blockchains (The Graph, LayerZero)
✅ Global Standard NFT Marketplace & DEX (Dew, Rarible, Quickswap)


Astar network's innovative Build2Earn program allows developers to earn a basic income while they build out their products and communities. Users are able to support projects by staking on them, which adds to the passive income developers earn and forms the basis of an unstoppable grant. Build2Earn encourages projects to stand out and provide value directly to end-users. See the dApp staking section for more information.

Wasm smart contracts

See the Wasm chapter for more information.

EVM smart contracts

Solidity developers feel right at home building on Astar in both the Polkadot and Ethereum ecosystems. See the EVM or zkEVM sections for more information.

Secured by Polkadot and Ethereum

Polkadot and Ethereum networks provide some of the best security guarantees in the web3 industry.
