Astar Network is one of the first potential Polkadot Parachains. We have been developing it for more than 1.5 years. We are one of the first Web3 Foundation grant recipients and we have participated in the UC Berkeley Xceleration program, Substrate Builders Program, Substrate Delivery Partners Program, and LongHash Ventures Acceleration Program, and Microsoft for Startups.
