We are delighted to announce our partnership with SNOW, a community-oriented and crowdloan-funded Kusama parachain that serves as a canary network for ICE!
“This partnership is great for SNOW, as we can look forward to more scalable and cost-efficient SNOW node deployment! Partnering with OnFinality will give us access to Polkadot/Kusama’s leading blockchain infrastructure provider, allowing anyone to spin up a new node for SNOW with just a few clicks”

What is SNOW?
SNOW is a long-term incentivized network for cutting-edge development backed by the ICZ token, which has real-world value. SNOW will serve as a ‘canary network’ for ICE. Supply and other token economic behaviours on SNOW will be the same as ICE, but token distribution will be different in order to support the goals and attributes of the network.
SNOW comes packed with a set of top tier features such as Full EVM and eWASM-compatibility, BTP cross-chain interoperability optimization and the backing of a vibrant L1 community. On SNOW, you can innovate without having to make guesses on tokenomics and game theory. Among other things, SNOW will use a parachain crowdloan to obtain its initial parachain slot on Kusama.

“We are incredibly happy to be supporting SNOW onto our Marketplace with over 60 networks! Users building on SNOW now have the choice to spin up nodes on-demand via OnFinality, and scale from the get go without having to first set up infrastructure of their own!”
