What is OORT Edge?

OORT Edge, previously known as OORT Decentralized Edge Network (DEN), is a community-powered network that makes Web3 applications faster, more secure, and easier to scale.

What Does it Do?

We believe Web3 developers should be able to access optimal dApp performance with internet-level scalability. To that end, OORT Edge aims to offer an array of important functionalities such as dynamic resource allocation for data storage and transfer.

OORT’s Third Testnet: Ascraeus

What is Ascraeus?

Ascraeus is dedicated to evaluating the OORT Edge tokenomics and network performance.

Departing from Mons Huygens, the moon’s highest mountain, OORT’s third testnet lands on the northernmost and tallest of the three large aligned Tharsis volcanoes on Mars, Ascraeus Mons.

New Mining Model

In this new testnet, the OORT Edge Mining model is introduced with OORT Edge. By running OORT’s edge node and providing storage, compute capacity, or bandwidth, one can help these applications to scale easily while earning mining rewards.

New Token $CCNA

$CCNA is the utility token in OORT’s latest testnet, Ascraeus. Miners will be rewarded in $CCNA and have the option to deposit collateral in both $CCN and $CCNA.

OORT Edge Mining Reward

Edge devices will receive two types of rewards in OORT Edge: mining rewards and utility rewards. Additional and more substantial rewards will be sent to edge devices providing utilities (storage, compute, and data transfer) for OORT’s business clients.

The collateral you put down, the stability of your edge node, and the total network growth will all affect your mining reward.

Learn more about how your mining reward is calculated here.

Optional Collateral

Collateral is not required for Deimos mining; however, if you opt to deposit collateral, you will receive 100% of the mining reward, 85% more than when you don’t deposit anything.
