Overview of ZetaChain
ZetaChain is a blockchain built on Cosmos SDK using the Proof of Stake consensus, connecting with other blockchain such as Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon… By using the Omnichain mechanism, developers can build odApps similar to dApps for single-chains like Ethereum or Polygon, while utilizing the aggregation ability of networks.
What is ZetaPoint?
ZetaPoint is the rewarding point for users when they complete missions on the network, specifically:
- 250 Points: For each transaction your referral makes.
- 1,000 Points: For each transaction you complete per day. The maximum points you may get is 1000/transaction/day.
- 5,000 Points: For each referral (that connects the wallet and verifies social media accounts) through the invitation link.
- 10,000++ Points: For each error you find when conducting transactions on ZetaChain. The amount of points is based on the type of error.
ZetaPoint is the benchmark for the assessment and recognition of users’ contribution on the ZetaChain testnet. This might be one of the keys to receiving airdrops from the network.
