On January 30th, 2024, Massa, the award-winning blockchain with a 150k-strong community and thousands of nodes worldwide, is launching its network with unique features such as Autonomous Smart Contracts and its native MAS token. These features enable decentralization, resilience, and the ability for apps to operate autonomously forever without relying on external infrastructure, making Massa resistant to censorship and hacking.
After a successful mainnet bootstrap on January 15th, 2024, Massa has settled millions of blocks and close to 100,000 transactions on its high-throughput L1 blockchain. With this strong backbone, Massa has outlined its strategy for ecosystem development and liquidity buildup.
To handle the Massa ecosystem, the Massa Foundation was recently established in Switzerland. The foundation will orchestrate incentive programs and fuel community initiatives, giving community members a voice in decision-making through forums open to token holders. The foundation is also expected to integrate community members into its board in 2024 and organize events like the Massa Community Conference.
In 2024, the Massa Foundation is allocating 2% of the MAS supply as grants for builders proposing projects that align with the ecosystem’s ideals and goals. Dozens of projects are already building on Massa.
The community and public sale are starting on January 30th on Republic, lasting for two weeks, with potential announcements for other launchpads and CEX/DEX listings. Token holders can apply for the project’s liquidity incentives program or easily run light nodes on their personal computers to earn proof-of-stake block rewards.
The Massa Foundation is allocating 1.7% of the MAS supply for the next six months as liquidity incentives within a program that will be revealed step by step. The first step incentivizes users to bridge tokens towards Massa dapps by offering an extra native yield on liquidity provider (LP) tokens. Providing liquidity for consecutive days or weeks will amplify the user’s incentive.
In short, bringing MAS or other crypto assets to Massa ecosystem apps, such as the Dusa decentralized exchange, will be heavily rewarded in multiple ways, significantly boosting TVL, improving market liquidity, and bootstrapping the financial ecosystem in Massa.
On the technical side, the Massa Domain Name System and Decentralized Web feature will be deployed in 2024, allowing website front-ends to be hosted and accessed on-chain, removing the need for centralized domain names and web hosting servers, which are common targets for hacks and censorship. Additionally, Umbrella Oracles will provide real-time price feeds on Massa, and cross-chain integration through partnerships like Hyperlane will anchor Massa into existing ecosystems. The team is also working on EVM compatibility, account abstraction, and refining the Autonomous Smart Contracts technology to allow for dynamic self-evolving NFTs and self-rebalancing liquidity pools.

The Massa Foundation, incorporated in Geneva, Switzerland, is a vital component of the Massa ecosystem, responsible for fostering its growth while safeguarding its core principles of decentralization. In its early stages, the foundation will orchestrate various incentive programs to stimulate both the Massa community and the wider ecosystem, including bounties, grants, and liquidity incentives.
