We are happy to announce that Cartesi (CTSI) has joined the family of the 160+ cryptocurrencies available on Changelly. Cartesi is the only infrastructure that allows developers to use Linux and mainstream software stacks to build powerful DApps.
Starting today, Cartesi will become available for instant swaps and fiat purchases on Changelly. Users will be able to exchange the coin at either fixed or floating rates, allowing them to ensure they get the best deal even when the market is volatile by “locking” the rate for fifteen minutes.
Cartesi is a rather special layer-2 project as it allows decentralized applications to run within a Linux environment, taking smart contracts to the next level. Complex processing can be executed off-chain, free from a blockchain’s computational limits and corresponding fees. Cartesi is first focused on Ethereum, but is also chain-agnostic and developers won’t need to worry about the longevity of particular blockchains. Cartesi’s vision is to make the development of DApps easy, scalable, and cost-efficient by incorporating tools developers already use and that have evolved over the last 30 years.
Changelly CEO Eric Benz was pleased to announce this significant news, stating that:
I believe that Cartesi listing on Changelly will be beneficial for both us and the Cartesi team and will lead to further development of both companies.
Cartesi CEO Erick de Moura also commented on this listing and shared their thoughts about this collaboration:
We are excited to collaborate with Changelly, which offers one of the fastest swap experiences. Our vision is to remove the boundaries and make broad adoption of DApps a reality. Changelly is an important partner and will significantly help us make Cartesi more accessible and bring us a step closer to our vision.
Cartesi was founded in 2018 by Erick de Moura, Augusto Teixeira, Diego Nehab and Colin Steil and is building an operating system for DApps. Cartesi allows decentralized applications to run within a Linux environment. Complex processing can be executed off-chain, free from a blockchain’s computational limits and corresponding fees but without compromising decentralization. Cartesi has received funding by prominent investors and funds such as SNZ, SOSV, Artesian and recently concluded a public-sale event with Binance. The team’s vision is to make the development of DApps easy, scalable, and cost-efficient by incorporating tools developers already use.
