The biggest strength of EVM-based blockchains (e.g. Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Callisto) is programmability via smart contracts. In fact, the best way to describe ethereum is programmable money. Smart contracts allow developers to create powerful protocols that can be combined like Lego blocks, and the more such Lego blocks are available the more useful the underlying blockchain and its native currency become (e.g. ETH, ETC, CLO).
While there are plenty of software developers who follow the cryptocurrency scene and want to make blockchain apps, also called dapps, so far very few have been able to switch from writing Windows, UNIX or Web programs to writing smart contracts. As pioneers in the world of Solidity programming we want to distill our knowledge into a simple toolkit for developers that will create an explosion of new dapps on EVM chains.
We are experts at creating thriving smart contract ecosystems on EVM chains that didn't have many devs or tokens before. It is only fitting that the team that brought you the first Ethereum Classic DEX, the first ETC dApp and the best multichain dapp wallet will also produce the best dapp developer kit. After all, we know a thing or two about developing dApps ourselves!
Saturn dapp Kit IDEO
In order to fund this development we are selling a block of STRN tokens on Ethereum Classic (ETC) blockchain.

- Price: 0.0002 ETC = 1 STRN
- Soft Cap: 5,000 ETC
Why this is a good investment
Historically STRN token has performed very well price-wise, having grown in price 10x since Initial Offering despite the long bear market that we were in. What's the secret? Turns out there is substantial demand for a thriving dapp ecosystem on Ethereum Classic blockchain, and STRN token unlocked the sleeping giant of ETC.

After our recent exchange upgrade we've noticed a big surge of activity on our order books. Thanks to our transparency reports you can see that the exchange growth has been incredible and token price is catching up. We have recently passed 600 unique ETC traders milestone and 24,000 ETC (~$170,000 USD) trading volume across 92 assets that is growing at an increased pace (you can see this info and more on Saturn Tools stats dashboard).
And there is no better time than now. Atlantis ETC Hard Fork is coming up shortly (in September 2019), and it will bring support for modern Solidity compiler versions, as well as opcodes necessary for creating zkSNARK privacy preserving smart contracts. We believe that it will be a fantastic combo for the whole Ethereum Classic community, even if you are ETC maximalist and don't believe in tokens: imagine releasing both the hard fork and the dapp dev kit - a truly powerful combo.
And if you don't care about Ethereum Classic blockchain and prefer something like TomoChain or xDAI yourself know that just like Saturn Wallet is multichain and easy to use, so will our dapp Dev Kit be multichain and easy to use. The whole EVM ecosystem will benefit from this work!
What will the funds be used for
We need your help in order to summarize everything that we have learned about writing dapps and deliver the best dapp development kit in the industry that will cover the whole development lifecycle: from coming up with an idea, to writing the smart contracts, to testing and auditing them, to deploying them on mainnet and creating great user interfaces. We are raising funds in order to complete the following work:
- Github template - the starting point for every dapp that will get you going from zero to full speed in no time
- Smart contract library - we will provide reference implementations of popular smart contracts, such as ERC20, ERC223, Mineable token standard, Deflationary tokens, Stakeable tokens, Oracles, Hourglass, and many others. All these contracts will come with in-depth reviews, tutorials and high test coverage
- Guides on how to properly test your smart contracts
- Guides on how to debug your smart contracts - invaluable tool for devs during development, saves weeks if not months!
- Scripts to deploy your creations to ETH and ETC mainnet and verify them on block explorers
- Guides for how to create modern user interfaces for your dApps and connect them to your smart contracts, and how to deploy those user interfaces on the public internet and share with the world
- And lots and lots of tutorials!
In return for supporting our IDEO (Initial Decentralized Exchange Offering) and for trading on Saturn Network, you earn SATURN tokens, which will be used for on-chain governance of Saturn Protocol. Fees collected from trading on Saturn will be distributed to Saturn token holders as dividends.
This token economics design makes the token price proportional to exchange volume. If you believe that dApp Kit and tutorials for devs to develop #defi, dapps and new tokens on Ethereum Classic will bring more volume to our exchange you might want to get some tokens early! Happy trading!
You can support and participate in our IDEO immediately on our exchange website, no need to fill in any KYC details or create an account, all you need is your favourite dApp browser.
