Multichain

Scatter is multichain!

Scatter collections deployed on other chains will generally function identically to our Mainnet collections - they are generally the same contracts though in some cases we either need to write entirely new contracts or adapted them to the unique features of a chain. As far as our frontend goes, we will work to unify everything so that you expectations are met as far as features go. All collections on any chain should have the flexible list features Scatter provides for example.

Some chains, such as Base, have much lower fees and faster transactions than you may find on Ethereum L1. These chains can offer you exciting opportunities in finding new communities of collectors.

Collections on Scatter show their chain ID icons next to collection names to help you know what was deployed where. When interacting with collections of different chains you will need to swap the active chain in your wallet, or use different wallets for different chains. Scatter will prompt you when you need to change. Collections on various chains will all share the same space on Scatter.

What are blockchain layers?

Layer 1 (L1): Blockchain networks that handle their own transaction processing, consensus, and security. Such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, or Berachain.

Layer 2 (L2): Scaling solutions built on top of L1 networks to improve transaction speed and reduce costs. Such as Base, Optimism, Arbitrum, and Polygon.

Layer 3 (L3): This term is less standardized but often refers to application-specific chains or further scaling solutions built on L2s. Sometimes games or specific communities will create their own L3 to have their onchain activity on. Sanko L3 is an example.

Which chains does Scatter support?

L1

Ethereum

Native token: ETH

Ethereum is a decentralized public L1 blockchain with fancy smart contract abilities.

Sepolia testnet

Native token: ETH

Sepolia is a blockchain designed to mimic the operating environment of a Mainnet, but exists on a separate ledger. It helps developers test their applications and smart contracts in a risk-free way before deploying their products to Ethereum’s Mainnet environment. Sepolia was designed to simulate harsh network conditions, and has shorter block times, which enable faster transaction confirmation times and feedback for developers.

Transactions on Base cost a fraction of a cent, so you can easily use it for testing. We recommend you to create a separate address in your wallet for it to prevent your main address being spammed by test NFTs.

Berachain bArtio

Native token: BERA

Berachain is a high-performance EVM-Identical L1 blockchain utilizing Proof-of-Liquidity (PoL), turning liquidity into security. PoL aligns network security and liquidity by validators rewarding liquidity providers on Berachain with the non-purchasable staking token of the network.

Berachain builds security via liquidity, solves stake centralization, aligns protocols and validators.

L2

Base

Native gas token: ETH

Base is a secure, low-cost, builder-friendly Ethereum L2 built to bring the next billion users onchain.

Think of Base as a sidekick to Ethereum L1 that processes transactions on a faster and more efficient scale.

It took only 0.02 ETH of gas to mint out the whole 10,000 supply of Kemonokaki! Meanwhile on Ethereum L1, it can cost tens of ETH just in gas to mint out a collection.

Blast

Native gas token: ETH

Blast is an innovative Ethereum L2 with native yield for ETH and stablecoins, created by the same team behind Blur. It promises the ability for users to generative passive income, simply by holding certain tokens in their wallets, that sets it apart from traditional L2s.

Blast presents an unprecedented opportunity for developers to build with yield, offering native yield for ETH and stablecoins. This opens doors to new revenue streams and rewards for end-users.

L3

Sanko

Native gas token: DMT

Sanko is an Arbitrum Orbit L3 designed to bring the Internet of value to the golden days of gaming. Sanko’s subcent transaction fees, 250ms transaction finality, and superior developer tooling make it the ideal infrastructure layer to enable gamers to participate and seamlessly transact in in-game economies — the natural evolution of a passion shared by millions.

Sanko was created by Sanko GameCorp, the on-chain game studio behind The Dream Machine and Sanko.TV.

How to deploy a collection on a chain other than Ethereum?

First of all, you need to add a chain to your wallet. You may already have it available (depends on wallet), just check settings to enable it. If not available, follow the docs on the official website of the chain and search for something like "Connect to CHAINNAME Mainnet". Then you can manually add the chain using the given parameters - Network name, RPC URL, Chain ID, Currency symbol and Block explorer URL. Or you can use Chainlist (a third-party service, so double check you add a proper chain and trusted RPC).

After it's done, you can easily switch between chains in your wallet. Your wallet address remains the same across all EVM-compatible chains.

For non-EVM chains, you may need to install another wallet which supports it.

Then you need to move some funds to this chain to interact with it, to be able to send transactions and pay fees for it. Different chains may have a different native gas token though - for example, Base and Blast have a usual ETH, while Berachain has $BERA and Sanko has $DMT.

You can send yourself funds from a centralized exchange, or use a chain's native or a third-party trusted bridge like https://stargate.finance/transfer or even your wallet built-in bridge (if available) to send yourself funds using your Ethereum Mainnet ETH balance. You can also use tools like https://www.bungee.exchange/ which aggregate bridges and can get you the lowest fees / fastest transactions.

Once you have some native gas token, everything else is nearly the same. You will use Scatter like you did before with one exception. When creating a collection, you’ll select the needed chain option instead of Ethereum Mainnet.

More Chains to Come!

We will continue to constantly add more and more chains, until we support every single chain possible!

If there is a chain you want to see supported by Scatter sooner let us know.
