Astar to rollout mainnet upgrade

Astar zkEVM announced an upgrade that will improve the function and performance of its testnet, zKyoto, and its mainnet. Decentralized application developers and end users do not need to take additional steps for the upgrade, it requires actions from infrastructure developers. 

The upgrade is set to roll out on April 8 at 12PM UTC on the testnet and April 10 at 12PM UTC on the mainnet, according to the official blog. Astar’s native bridge will be unavailable for a two hour duration during the upgrade and the project shared steps for infrastructure developers to follow, in its announcement. 

On Saturday, Astar encountered a network issue and the chain was under unscheduled maintenance. The protocol announced that user funds are secure and collaborated with Polygon and Gelato developers to address the challenges faced. 

ASTR price is nearly unchanged on the daily timeframe. In the past week, ASTR price wiped out nearly 7% of its value and the Layer 2 token is down nearly 18% on the monthly timeframe.
