- The Terra Mars protocol mainnet will go live on January 31st.
- MARS tokens will be crucial in safeguarding Mars’ new hub-and-outpost architecture.
The initial Terra leading and autonomous lending platform Mars protocol has the ability to accept any type of digital value for deposits and loans, including LP tokens, cryptos, and more. It revealed on January 20 that it would launch its own cosmic application chain on January 31 and give Terra Classic MARS tokens to users who held it during snapshots.
The site states that the Mars Hub mainnet will launch with a first genesis set of sixteen reputable and skilled validators. That includes Block Pane, Cosomolgy, CryptoCrew Validators, P2P Validators, Smart Stake, and others. Additionally, 34 more permissionless validator slots will make accessible after the launch.
Terra’s Mars Mainnet Protocol
The new Mars protocol feature will make lending and borrowing on the cosmic ecosystem easier for a variety of other blockchains. The mainnet is in the final stage of the launch. And it is followed by Alpha in November and the Ares test version, which is still in progress.
The mainnet launch is the third and final step of a three-step process that began with a private testnet for developers and some community members, followed by a public testnet. In early February, the first Mars outpost will launch on the Osmosis blockchain.
MARS tokens will play a significant part in securing Mars’ new hub-and-outpost architecture. And upon its creation, securing the Mars Hub network and Govern Hub Outpost functionality.
And the MARS tokens will make available to eligible addresses through an airdrop that will take place in conjunction with the launch of the mainnet on January 31. Additionally, 64.4M tokens will unlock and will make available to those who held MARS during either of the two historical snapshots taken on Terra Classic.
The tokens will be available to eligible recipients via Terra’s new interchain wallet, Station. To connect to Mars Hub, install the current version of the station and use the wallet address where one previously held MARS on Terra Classic. And the MARS token will be generated automatically when the Mars Hub address is generated.
