Binance’s 51st Launchpool Project: What is Saga?

Developers can deploy dedicated blockchains tailored to specific applications through autonomous Chainlets, promoting scalability, interoperability, and security.

Binance continues to expand its Launchpool platform with the introduction of Saga (SAGA), marking the 51st project to join the ecosystem. Saga brings a new dimension to blockchain development with its Layer 1 protocol, aiming to revolutionize Web3 application creation. 

Let’s delve into the details.

Introducing Saga

Saga emerges as a modular Layer 1 blockchain designed to streamline Web3 development processes. It offers a comprehensive toolkit and SagaOS platform, empowering developers to materialize their visionary projects with ease. 

At its core, Saga aims to simplify the creation of dedicated, parallelized, and interoperable chains that scale dynamically to meet the demands of Web3 applications. Its reportedly blends of flexibility, efficiency, and scalability position it as a formidable contender in the blockchain space.

Saga’s Architecture and Technical Features

Saga is a Layer 1 blockchain protocol, engineered to enhance Web3 development efficiency. The protocol introduces Chainlets, autonomous blockchains tailored for specific applications, running concurrently to promote scalability and interoperability without compromising on performance or security. 

Key technical features include:

  • Automatic Chainlet Generation: Developers can effortlessly generate dedicated blockchains for their applications, ensuring scalability and customization.
  • Cosmos Interchain Security (ICS): Chainlets inherit security directly from Saga’s Mainnet, leveraging shared validator services.
  • Cosmos SDK Modules Compatibility: Saga supports various virtual machines and SDK modules, facilitating flexible application development.
  • Elastic Scalability: The architecture allows expansion in response to application demand, ensuring optimal performance.
  • SagaOS Integration: Provides a comprehensive stack for application development, including automated smart contract deployment, low fees, and fast asset interoperability.

The Role of Chainlets in Saga’s Ecosystem

Chainlets serve as independent blockchains tailored for executing individual smart contracts, providing developers with dedicated space for application deployment.

Its components include a VM module and SDK, which can both be updated independently to provide adaptability without impacting the main network. This setup reportedly ensures predictability in fees and supports various virtual machines, including the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). 

With dedicated validator sets safeguarded by Saga’s shared security mechanism, Chainlets offer exclusive blockspace, amplifying scalability across diverse execution environments.

Difference With Cosmos

The way Chainlets are created differs slightly from what we can observe on the Cosmos Hub when launching consumer chains that use replicated security. Launching a Chainlet with Saga is entirely permissionless, unlike the Cosmos Hub.

Setting up and maintaining Chainlets only requires SAGA tokens from developers. It is similar to Amazon Web Services and other SaaS platforms, but Chainlets are created and maintained by paying a subscription fee in SAGA tokens.

Following the payment of the fee, Saga validators set up and operate the infrastructure for a Chainlet, similar to how Cosmos Hub validators operate the infrastructure for consumers. 

Team and Investors

Saga is founded by Rebecca Liao, Jin Kwon, Jacob McDorman, and Bogdan Alexandrescu.

Many notable investors and partners have invested in Saga, including Maven11, LongHash Ventures, Hypershere, Figment, Polygon, Samsung Next, Chorus One, GSR, C2X, Crit Ventures, Merit Circle, and Hustle Fund.

Participating in Saga’s Launchpool

Binance users can engage with Saga by staking BNB (Binance Coin) and FDUSD (Binance USD) to farm SAGA tokens through the Launchpool platform. Staking activities will run for four days from April 5, allowing users to earn SAGA tokens as rewards. 

Here are the details you need to know:

  • Token Supply: 1,000,000,000 SAGA
  • Launchpool Token Awards: 45,000,000 SAGA
  • Initial Circulation Supply: 90,000,000 SAGA

Binance will list SAGA on April 9.
