[01] To Community Members: MAPO is Paradigm of Cross-chain

Hey, I am co-founder of map labs, and MAP protocol Foundation director, JAMES XYC.

It is so nice to share the public of MAPo’s movement in the future.

I know, some members doubt MAP protocol Core Team’s faith and capability. As a 4 years long-time developed cross-chain technology paradigm project, MAPo’s code&engineering is so slow and long-term. But, the good news is that, map protocol is going to operate before end of this year.

Different from other cross-chains, MAP Protocol team chose a hard buy Right way 4 years ago, the way is to build an omnichain infrastructure which is non-privilege, provable decentralized,100% SATOSHI consensus, dapps-friendly usage.

Folks always ask map team, why so slow? Why others can so quickly? Anyone who has little cryptography or Layer1 experience or knowledge can be impressed by MAPo’s design and hard work in back of it. And they must get that other cross-chain solutions either have privilege role(MPC/Oracle) or no EVM chain coverage (COSMOS).

Folks know that Cantonese cuisine soup is delicious, but few one know that this soup need to
cooked more than 6 hours.

The World don’t need one more cross-chain solution that has the same flaw.
The world needs a cross-chain that is flawless, that is paradigm, that is 100% SATOSHI consensus. THAT IS MAP PROTOCOL!

If we chose MPC or Oracle (privilege role for cross-chain verification), MAP protocol Core team can online and cross all chains in 8 months, not needing almost 4 years.

Why map is so slow?what is detail?
The hardest part is to design it, no paradigm can learn. MAP protocol core team have to design it for themselves. Another is, MAP Relay Chain need to precompile all chain’s Hash&Signature algorithm embedded into map relay chain’s EVM layer, No one do so hard engineer before. It is extremely hard, but if no doing, MAP cannot achieve a light-client cross chain verification network which is a paradigm, so sexy, so amazing.

Above is the past four years what core team did, maybe it is looks like stupid in this quick-money area. But map community has our own faith, we have the mission, to build a paradigm for cross-chain.

After relay chain launched, the next step is to connect all chains. This phase is also hard-skill, because map core developers need to deploy each chains’ light client on other chain as smart contract. The cross chain project Nomad, knew as lost 190Mn, announced that is hard to develop light client on each chain and giving up this solution early this year. But map developers can do it.

What is launching plan?
As what you see, the light client of bsc/ near/ethW had been audit now, after CERTIK finishs work, the BSC/ NEAR/ETHW’s cross chain will launch immediately, maybe in few days.

The next chain queue is
End of this year :Ethereum2.0, Klaytn, Polygon alive officially.
End of next year: all thriving chains, such as aptos,sui,flow,xrpl,iotex,kcc.

Map protocol is for dapp, not for user directly .
Map is an omnichain infrastructure for dapps covering all chains’ users/assets. So for that, we developed the mos layer. With it, dapp can convert to omnichain dapp in simple way. Map protocol’s main job is to verify cross-chain’valid, isnot a bridge. AS all know, map not just support bridge assets, but also data and nft.

Why is active data of relay chain so low?
Map relay chain is for cross-chain verification, is not a normal layer1.so the data will get better after connecting near and bnbchain.

Why donot open the hiveswap’s TVL minning?
Hiveswap tvl mining is a community issue, not engineering, so please give proposal to governance.

Any other defi will launch on map relay chain?
Sure, I know one team is developing a LIDO-like application, so delegates can have liquidity after staking mine.

How to promote more dapps using map protocol?
It is easier than engineering MAP, we had determined ambitious plan, from dapp developers and community marketing to academy scholar plan. Forks can see it in forum list.

Why no new exchange listing $MAP?
It is a sensitive topic. I don’t think exchange don’t like MAP: the paradigm of cross-chain.Actually, Core team had got several invitations for top10 CEX. More details can’t be public, thank you for comprehension.

What is map’s important points in next year?
Certainly, more dapps use map protocol, our first step aims to over cosmos’ active DAU and cross-chain verification assets.And more eco dapps can give benefit to community members, such as airdrop.

Why develop ZK?
ZK is for lowered the cross-chain gas fee, it is benefit for dapps and community. ZK engineering will be finished in the end of next year.

What map family believes in is “Long-term/ Paradigm/Difference/Hard-but-right”.
Also, all MAP community has this faith, certainly.


We all are here for the long term and actually its an awesome time for #buidling (because of the bera market). Keep on!


It’s better we keep the process slow and steady to be successful than to rush and fail

We are here for the long term success of map
