CTSI price charted an upwards trajectory up until April 21. However, CryptoSlate data indicates that the token lost 10.86% of its value in the last 24 hours. Regardless of the fall, the current CTSI price reflects an 82% increase over the last 30 days.

Cartesi rollups

Cartesi is essentially a layer-2 scaling solution that allows developers to build dApps that operate across multiple chains. It supports Linux and other mainstream software components while allowingย builders to deploy application-specific rollups as layer-2 on top of Ethereum (ETH) โ€” or as layer-3 on other chains.

The announcement post explains the difference by stating:

“…Cartesi Rollups is an application-specific execution environment that can be deployed as layer 2 or layer 3; itโ€™s not a layer 1 blockchain or DApp, which means that the traditional concept of a โ€œmainnet launchโ€ for Cartesi differs from many other blockchain projects. What will actually go to mainnet are DApps built using Cartesi.”

The mainnet launch is by deploying the first Cartesi-powered dApp Honeypot on the ETH mainnet. The Honeypot dApp is designed to hold real assets to both “setting a financial benchmark for secure asset management and providing a gamified battlefield for the community to help audit and test Cartesi’s cutting-edge technology.”

The announcement post states that launching the Honeypot to the mainnet will “mark the beginning of a new era” for Cartesi as it will test and fortify Cartesi’s tech and security. With that being said, the Cartesi team didn’t disclose a specific date for the Honeypot’s deployment.
