Shiden Network starts to support $JPYC

2 min readNov 2, 2021

We are really excited to tell you that Shiden Network has started to support $JPYC on their chain from November 1st, 2021.
As a result, $JPYC will be able to be issued and distributed on the Kusama ecosystem, which is expected to further improve the convenience of JPYC as a means of payment.

$JPYC is currently distributed mainly on Ethereum and Polygon, but in order to further increase its convenience as a means of payment, further expansion of the networks that support $JPYC is essential.
That’s why we are pleased to announce that JPYC is now compatible with the Shiden Network, a public blockchain from Japan.

By enabling the issuance and distribution of $JPYC on the Kusama ecosystem, we will contribute to the further enhancement of the value of $JPYC as a means of payment, and accelerate the global expansion of Shiden Network, a public blockchain from Japan.

What Is Shiden Network?

Shiden Network is built on the same code base as Astar Network (formerly Plasm), a public blockchain also from Japan, and is designed to connect to Kusama Network, an experimental network one tenth the size of Polkadot Network.

Polkadot/Kusama does not have smart contract functionality and is focused on connecting different blockchains together.
Therefore, there is a great need and potential for projects that connect to Polkadot/Kusama and support smart contracts, such as Astar Network and Shiden Network. Siden Network has similar functionality to Astar Network and aims to be a hub for distributed applications supporting Ethereum and WebAssembly based smart contracts in Kusama Network.
