Darwinia is pleased to announce our partnership with OAK Network!

3 min readApr 6, 2022

OAK Network is a automation hub for the Polkadot ecosystem which empowers autonomous transactions such as payroll and investor dollar-cost averaging strategies, for example, and will allow Darwinia and Crab Network ecosystem dapps to leverage a new suite of tools for automatic payments and scheduled value transfer or swaps, or actions in response to specific on-chain triggers.

OAK Network will connect to Darwinia and Crab Networks through Kusama and Polkadot relay chains which will open up the possibility of asynchronous multi-chain payroll operations and automatic investment strategies, even those that span multiple chains both inside and outside the Polkadot ecosystem!

Be sure to follow OAK Network on Twitter, Telegram, and Subsocial for frequent updates. If you are wanting to learn more about OAK Network’s product plans you can visit their developer portal and website here or reach out to them on their Discord.

About OAK Network

OAK (On-chain Autonomous Kernel) Network is a blockchain automation hub for DeFi and payments built on Parity Substrate with a first of its kind event-driven execution model. This model enables transactions to be triggered by event signals such as time, price, and smart contract state changes. Importantly, this differs from traditional architectures utilized by Ethereum, Bitcoin, and other popular chains where multiple transactions require repeated private key signing. With this novel design, OAK can empower any connected blockchain with autonomous functionality unleashing endless potential for our partners.

About Darwinia

Darwinia is a trustless multi-chain bridge hub, designed to become the foundational layer for the next generation of Web3.0 Metaverse Infrastructure . Using a combination of ZK proofs and optimistic challenge technology to provide a Truth or consensus-layer general bridging solution between heterogeneous chains such as Polkadot, Ethereum, Polygon, and BSC, Darwinia does so without the need for smart contract-based vaults or wrapping tokens, and is also compatible with zero-liquidity assets such as NFTs.

The products and tools developed by Darwinia have been awarded three Web3 Foundation grants and a level-2 Substrate Builders award, Darwinia is also mentioned in the Polkadot lightpaper, and was the first project in the ecosystem to deploy a Substrate-Substrate bridge.

About Crab Network

Crab is a canary network with real economic value for Darwinia, and its positioning is similar to Polkadot’s Kusama Network. Crab Network has won the 22nd Kusama parachain slot! You can check Crab status through Polkadot{.js} , Subscan or Subview. Crab provides smart contract solutions based on DVM (Darwinia Virtual Machine), which is compatible with the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) paradigm at a low level. Therefore, it is easy for projects in the Ethereum ecosystem to migrate to the Crab Smart Chain. (Tips: DVM is built on Frontier with a fully EVM-compatible instruction set and an Ethereum RPC-like external interface.)




As an open cross-chain bridge protocol based on Substrate, Darwinia focuses on the construction of future Internet of Tokens. TG: http://t.me/DarwiniaNetwork
