Songbird (SGB) goes live and DeFiOracles starts experimenting on the test network
XRP holders that are participated in the Flare Snapshop in December of 2020 just received another airdrop known as Songbird.
- Songbird SGB airdrop now available for those who participated
- Songbird network in observation and testing mode
- DeFiOracles (FTSO) are among the first to experiment with SGB
Flare’s “canary network,” which has been expected for months, is now available in observation mode.
Songbird, the sister chain of EVM-compatible blockchain Flare (FLR), was designed to test new features on a smaller network before deploying them on the main chain.
The new system was activated by distributing SGB, the core native token of the Songbird blockchain, to Flare (FLR) teams. All FLR investors who claimed SGB have received the coins.
The system is presently in Observation Mode: node peering is made possible via the whitelist, while the Flare team reserves the right to roll back and restart operations from the Genesis Block if necessary.
One of the Flare Times Series Oracle providers, DeFiOracles, is putting its Songbird infrastructure to the test.
DefiOracles is one of the first infrastructure providers for Flare (FLR) blockchain and Flare Finance DeFi ecosystem, having launched in early March 2021. Its staff discusses the results of its stress testing.
According to a press release published on the DeFiOracles Twitter account, its staff is testing SGB tokens from Songbird and their wrapped version (WSGB).
The team ensures that testing is proceeding without any hiccups. while the node operations are “healthy.” The DeFiOracles team revealed the system’s capabilities with screenshots for SGB and WSGB.
Engineers from DeFiOracles said that their top goal is to offer the lowest delegate rate on Flare and Songbird.
Customers of other FTSOs will, in general, get the lowest rewards on their stakes compared to delegators of DefiOracle’s.
However, DeFiOracles are among the first to experiment with SGB (Songbird Blockchain) tokens. On September 17, 2021, these tokens were distributed as part of an airdrop to fans who participated in December of 2020.
After the successful stress testing of all components of the Songbird ecosystem, Flare (FLR) will be released as a mainnet. Flare will function as a testing sandbox for Songbird.
