The Autobahn Network is the first Layer 2 Rollup for the BNB Smart Chain (formerly Binance Smart Chain). It's designed to run at lightning speed while minimizing fees, and benefits from the BNB Smart Chain which underlies it.
BSC gas fees are already too high for many dApps with high transaction volume (e.g. games). Decentralized Exchanges, and other dApps, have become slower or revert transactions. With greater adoption, this will only get worse. Scaling is needed to regain speed and decrease gas costs by 95%.
The Autobahn Network is an Ethereum based scaling solution built to minimize transaction fees and provide lightning-fast transactions, combined with the security of the underlying BNB Smart Chain network.
Main use cases for the network are Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Game transactions, and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), which account for the majority of transactions on the underlying BSC layer.
The Autobahn Rollup technology offers transaction fees at a fraction of BNB Smart Chain's gas fees. Approx. 95% lower.
DeFi & NFT trading need high-performance. As on the German highway called Autobahn, transactions are optimized for speed.
Decentralization will be achieved by decentralizing the Rollup sequencer. This will come on top of what BNB Smart Chain offers as decentralization.
The Rollup itself adheres to the highest security standards. In addition, all data is written on BNB Smart Chain - for additional security.
The Autobahn Network is already live! It is open to all developers from DeFi, GameFi or NFT projects on BNB Smart Chain.
The detailed Autobahn Network GitBook explains the technology and acts as a manual for all developers. Deploying on the Autobahn Network can be achieved in a couple of minutes.
All Autobahn Network code will be made open-source in GitHub - with a focus on documentation and readability - to make a developer’s life as easy and convenient as possible.
To incentivize deployments in the Autobahn Network scaling layer, a grant program will be launched. Apply to receive a grant soon and benefit from all Rollup advantages!
Read how the Autobahn Network will evolve as the first Optimistic Rollup for BNB Smart Chain. More details about the roadmap can be found in Discord.
Initially, the Autobahn Network was developed with a focus on maximum performance and minimum fees for BNB Smart Chain.
The Rollup goes live as a Canary Network connected to BSC Mainnet. During this phase, access is limited to selected developers.
Instead of BNB, we will change the code that TXL will be used as the network’s gas token. At the same time, the Whitelist requirement will be lifted.
Depositing & withdrawing funds from the network will be available in the Frontend of the crosschainbridge.org - for both deposits and slow & fast exit.
The first NFT Collection, the Autobahn Genesis Cars, will launch on the network. Afterwards, a first well-known NFT Marketplace can be deployed.
We are already looking for a DEX provider who wants to be the first DEX on the network. Get in touch and let's discuss.
To pull in the first active wallets, a first Game will be deployed. We are in touch with several ones, but let us know if you’d be interested, too.
As the 2nd important launch phase of the Canary Autobahn Network, a full month for developing & deploying with attractive TXL rewards will take place.
To incentivize deploying dApps & increasing security long-term, a Grant & Bug Bounty Program will be introduced.
With more dApps being deployed, the Autobahn developers will focus on decentralizing the sequencer & introducing TXL Node Staking.
In addition to the Autobahn Rollup for BSC, the technology could be utilized to scale other blockchains, or as a white-label solution.
The TXL token is the fuel for the Autobahn Network. It benefits from all transaction fees, staking, and much more.
We are one big family and welcome every new member - developers, users, investors, and anybody else.
