Excited to share about our partnership with DARWINIA Network to introduce Witness to the growing bridge hub. For the uninitiated, Darwinia Network is an open cross-chain bridge protocol built on Substrate, connecting to other heterogeneous chains by cross-chain transfer of assets and remote chain calls.

“Native blockchain ecosystems are flourishing and herein lies a rising demand for more robust governance solutions. The quest for interoperability will intermingle with other Web3 born and bred identities such as autonomy, such as participation, such as privacy.

- Alex Chien, CEO and Co-Founder at Darwinia Network

In a multi-chain future, the work of projects…


May 31 to June 11

For a long time now, we’ve been wanting to share more concrete progress around what’s been happening in the Automata ecosystem, especially since things are moving rapidly. One way of doing that is by keeping our communication channels open and gathering feedback and ideas from the crowd — we’re on Discord, Twitter, Telegram, for instance — and moving forward we hope to improve upon that by providing updates on a regular basis.

Community is important to us, and we love to share more about our journey, challenges we are facing, and important milestones we are…


We are happy to share about our latest collaboration with Litentry to strengthen privacy protection for user data across the protocol’s identity computation layer. As an introduction, Litentry is a cross-chain identity aggregation protocol, featuring a Substrate-built network, mobile app and identity-related tools.

“Innovations tend to stack, and the world of decentralized digital identity will prove to be particularly powerful when privacy, already a priority in our current work, becomes woven into more and more of Litentry’s existing architecture.”

Hanwen Cheng, CEO at Litentry

Litentry will utilise Automata’s compute node, Geode, to protect users’ privacy in its two important pallets…

Excited to announce we’re embarking on a partnership with Clover Finance to support Witness, the privacy-first off-chain governance solution part of Automata’s technology suite. Built on Polkadot, Clover Finance is a powerful smart contract platform that enables Ethereum developers and projects to migrate their contracts onto the blockchain. By minimising the changes required to run existing Solidity smart contracts on the new network, Ethereum projects can simply replicate their dApp and deploy it to Clover using MetaMask, Truffle, Remix, and other familiar tools.

“Amidst heightened expectations around privacy, Witness is on the next wave of innovation that allows those working…
