“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the long-awaited arrival of our subnetwork, the Swimmer Network!”, he said through an article published on the Medium platform.

About Swimmer Network

This is a dedicated gaming blockchain that leverages the existing infrastructure and security of the Avalanche Network.

As explained by the company, Swimmer Network aims to provide a fun, engaging and frictionless experience for both game enthusiasts and game developers on the blockchain.

Dive into the Network of Swimmers

1. Gas mining

The company stated that Crabada currently consumes approximately 16% of the gas used on the Avalanche Network, with gas consumption at ~262$AVAX/hr (~$22k USD/hr).

Therefore, the company announced that $TUS will be the gasoline token on the Swimmer Network. “Our beloved and hardworking Crabada will now power the Red Swimmer”, he added.

In his opinion, his goal is an ~85% reduction in operational costs for players with the switch to Swimmer Network. In addition, a percentage of network fees will be burned. The initial burn rate is projected at ~25% of all network fees and is projected to scale up to ~80% as the network grows.

2. Rate coverage model

The company commented that a key innovation of the Swimmer Network is the rate coverage model.

According to the company, this feature reduces onboarding friction by helping players play without having to purchase gas tokens in the first place.

“Games will have the ability to subsidize/spend gas on behalf of their players. This feature can be turned on or off at the discretion of the game creator. This opens up a lot of possibilities for a seamless onboarding experience”, he said.

3. Subsidies for ecosystems

By the end of the first quarter, the company said it will be onboarding the first cohort of Swimmer Network Ecosystem Grant recipients.

CRA$1.25 million has been set aside for 2022 as part of ecosystem grants for the following categories:

a. Community developers (tools/apps)

b. Community Partners (Ambassador Program v2)

c. New games

4. Validators for the Network of Swimmers

Similarly, he highlighted those validators must run an avalanche node and stake $CRA on a timelock validator contract during validation.

“Validators will get the balance of the network fees after the burn, based on the weight of their wagered $CRA. The initial set of validators will be made up of trusted partners who share the Swimmer Network’s long-term vision”, he said.
