At Airlyft, our commitment to the Shardeum ecosystem has been unwavering since day one. We proudly deployed our smart contracts on the Shardeum testnet, solidifying our dedication to the platform’s growth and development. Notably, Shardeum Times, a key influencer within the ecosystem, has played a pivotal role as our staunch supporter.

We met the Shardeum Team during EthIndia 2022, and were excited by the community they were building in India.

As the number of DApps deploying on Shardeum increased, we recognized the crucial need for community building among these projects, just as vital as it was for Shardeum itself. This realization sparked the idea of initiating a grand collaboration — a mega campaign uniting a diverse array of DApps. And so, the concept of ‘Shardeum Stars’ was born, featuring 12 standout projects. The mission of Shardeum Stars was straightforward: to passionately promote the Shardeum ecosystem and ignite the curiosity of as many individuals as possible within the community.

Engaging with these projects, we discovered a shared enthusiasm and commitment to the cause. Within a matter of days, we successfully brought them together in a Telegram group, forming a dynamic community poised for collective growth and success.

This was the first time so many projects were collaborating for a single campaign, led by Ranger from AirLyft.

The campaign statistics exceeded all expectations, reaching unprecedented heights. Here’s a comprehensive overview:
