What Is Shiden?

Shiden is the canary network for Astar. New updates get rolled out on Shiden first, and only get activated on Astar after a successful testing period on Shiden. Using this canary network, developers can test their applications in an incentivized, production-like environment instead of having to rely on test networks. The native token of Shiden is SDN. Learn more about Shiden on its website.
