Tanssi Foundation Announces ‘Let’s Forkin’ Dance,’ Tanssi’s Incentivized TestNet Campaign, Reinventing Appchain Deployment

Press Releases

George Town, Cayman, April 18th, 2024, Chainwire

The Tanssi Foundation, a key contributor to the development of Tanssi’s community and ecosystem, has unveiled “Let’s Forkin’ Dance,” the Tanssi Incentivized TestNet campaign. This initiative is designed to incentivize participants and propel community growth and network activity in preparation for the upcoming Tanssi Network launch later this year.

Backed by leading investors like Arrington Capital, HashKey Capital, Fenbushi, Borderless, The Wormhole Cross-Chain Fund, KR1, YBB, SNZ Capital, and Scytale Digital, alongside angel investors such as Gavin Wood, Tanssi is at the forefront of reinventing the deployment of application-specific blockchains (appchains). These appchains play a crucial role in creating decentralized, user-centric applications. Traditionally, deploying appchains has been cumbersome and time-consuming, often forcing developers to settle for less secure and centralized alternatives. Tanssi’s protocol aims to simplify this process to just a few clicks, significantly reducing deployment times from months to minutes.

In just six months since its launch, Dancebox, Tanssi’s TestNet, has supported over 700 appchain deployments in fields such as DeFi, NFTs, real-world assets, and gaming, showing rapid market adoption. This major step toward the official launch of the Tanssi Network showcases the vibrant activity anticipated once the network is live, inviting everyone to actively participate in the ecosystem.

The Tanssi Incentivized TestNet – Pathway to Mainnet Success

Community-named “Let’s Forkin’ Dance” (LFD) introduces a dynamic mix of on-chain and off-chain challenges designed to engage a broad spectrum of the ecosystem—from builders and casual users to key network supporters. This initiative not only celebrates community involvement but also equips participants with practical, hands-on experience in Tanssi’s environment ahead of the official mainnet launch.

Campaign Highlights:

  • Three Tracks for Participation: Designed for a broad community including Tanssians (general users), Builders (ecosystem projects), and Block Producers.
  • Incentives: Allocating 1% of the Tanssi Network as incentives for top participants in the campaign.
  • Ecosystem Quests: Featuring engaging on-chain quests from various appchain projects within the Tanssi ecosystem.

Getting Involved: The campaign officially kicks off on April 30. users can stay updated or sign up for alerts at

“Since its inception, Tanssi has been dedicated to simplifying the deployment of application-specific blockchains (appchains), making them more accessible, and ultimately bringing forward the web3 infrastructure landscape,” said Francisco Agosti, Tanssi Co-founder and CEO of Moondance Labs. “Let’s Forkin Dance is a significant step towards launching Tanssi’s mainnet, and will help strengthen the community of developers and users who will be essential once Tanssi goes live.”
