Calamari, Manta Network's canary net, is the plug-and-play privacy-preservation parachain built to serve the Kusama world. It combines Kusama and zkSNARK to bring inter-operable, easy to use, highly-performant and auditable on-chain privacy to transactions and further use cases.
The canary net is a highly experimental version of our the stable Manta Network, where all new features will be released and tested first.
The Calamari parachain will be home to multiple privacy solutions, first of which is
MantaPay on Calamari: a token-agnostic private payment service. MantaPay on Calamari supports the private transfer of Kusama and assets of connected Parachains. Users can transact popular assets like stablecoins and wrapped BTC while simultaneously benefiting from on-chain privacy through ZKP.
