Zecrey Legend Public Testnet Phase 1 is LIVE

The team at Zecrey is proud to announce that the testnet for Zecrey Legend is up and running at 1:00 PM UTC, December 3rd. In multiple phases, we will release it across various platforms, including iOS, Android, Web Applications, and a Browser Extension.

Users can claim testnet tokens via the BNB Chain Testnet Faucet to access the full suite of products from the Zecrey Protocol, including our Layer 1 Wallet, Zecrey Legend on Layer 2, and the Zecrey NFT Marketplace!

Zecrey Legend debuts the very first L2 NFT Marketplace on BNB Chain

The Zecrey Protocol is a zk-rollup-based layer 2 solution featuring privacy and scalability. Our core products are comprised of Zecrey Zero, which focuses on privacy, and Zecrey Legend, which emphasizes scalability and NFT-related primitives, including an NFT Marketplace built on top of Layer 2.

Zecrey brings to the wider blockchain community a crisp and intuitive UI with an underlying infrastructure that safeguards user’s ownership of their assets with security that is as secure as the underlying layer 1 network.

Zecrey Legend heralds a significant milestone for the team at Zecrey. We are able to leverage our advanced zk-rollup technology and a strategic partnership with Binance to bring users of the BNB Chain a superb NFT experience across Games, Metaverse, Digital Art, and so forth. Transactions on Legend are boosted with lightning-fast speed, low even zero gas, solid security, and a seamless user experience.

The difference from the previous testnet

Zecrey has two different Layer 2s, namely Zecrey Zero and Zecrey Legend. The previous testnet was about Zecrey Zero, and the product we released was a browser extension, finished by January 31st, 2022.

Zecrey Legend testnet provides several products like a mobile app, web app, and extension with an updated UI design. Our L1 mainnet has gone live since March 2022 and will not be affected by the new testnet.

Both Zecrey Zero and Legend are Layer 2s powered by our zk-Rollup technology with high scalability and solid security. While Zecrey Zero is our Layer 2 with privacy features by default, and Zecrey Legend is the basis of the first Layer 2 NFT marketplace on BNB Chain. It also serves as an NFT engine for Web 3 games.

In brief, there are several bullet points to summarize the two different Layer 2s:

Zecrey Zero:

  • Millisecond-level transaction speed
  • Ultra-low gas fee
  • Same security level as underlying L1
  • Built-in DEX
  • Default privacy protection for all transactions
  • FT functions supported

Zecrey Legend:

  • Millisecond-level transaction speed
  • Ultra-low gas fee
  • Same security level as underlying L1
  • Built-in DEX
  • Built-in NFT Marketplace
  • Both FT and NFT functions supported

What to Expect in Legend Testnet

Zecrey Legend testnet will unfold step by step as we launch different products.

For the first phase of this testnet, we will launch Zecrey mobile app. For Android users, we will provide the download link of the Zecrey Android application on our official website on December 3rd. The launch time will be delayed for iOS users since App Store has recently released a restrictive policy on applications with NFT functions. We will keep working on the iOS mobile app and share the newest updates with our community.

Besides the mobile application, Zecrey will also launch the web applications and the new version of our browser extension as part of Legend testnet in Q4 2022.

Here’s a brief introduction to the full set of Zecrey products to be launched for various usage scenarios:

  • Zecrey Mobile APP, which includes an L1 wallet, L2-Legend wallet, and Zecrey NFT Marketplace. The mobile app contains Zecrey’s complete functions, and both iOS and Android systems will be supported. And users need to import or create an account to use the wallet.
  • Zecrey Extension, which includes L1 wallet and L2-Legend wallet. It is a convenient way to use Zecrey wallet and interact with Dapp in the browser. Users need to import or create an account to use the wallet.
  • Zecrey Web App (NFT Marketplace), where users can enjoy the world of NFTs more conveniently on the webpage. Users need to connect to an in-browser wallet extension (Zecrey or Metamask) before operation.
  • Zecrey Web App (Legend), where users can experience better interaction on the webpage. More Defi options including Staking and Farming will be added in the future. Users need to connect to an in-browser wallet extension (Zecrey or Metamask) before operation.
