What is Songbird crypto and how is it different?
Songbird, the canary network, was developed to test the characteristics of the upcoming Flare network. Canary networks are basically the functioning blockchains that are utilised as testing bases for the mainnet, allowing developers to operate without facing any obstacles. Songbird boasts of being one of the few canary networks that are in operation in the crypto space.
Being a canary network, the Songbird crypto boasts of the total supply of 15,969,863,014 SGB tokens. Canary networks are better than testnets as they provide the developers with precise economic conditions. The technology behind Songbird, Flare, is a cheap and extremely decentralised smart contract platform having a low carbon footprint along with high scalability. The two major products provided by Flare are Flare Time Series Oracles (FTSO) and F-Asset.
Songbird will help in updating the Flare Network while testing its new features in the long run. With testing the Flare Network being its core utility, Songbird is also getting exposure to secondary utilities. The collaboration of Flare and Allianceblock as well as the launch of the DEX FLareX took place on the Songbird Network.
