Hong Kong-based Crypto.com announced on Friday Crossfire, the platform’s chain, is preparing for its Mainnet launch with a final dry run. According to Crypto.com, Crossfire marks an important milestone and final step in preparation for mainnet.
“Participating Validators have the opportunity to compete with each other while completing tasks. Winning Validators will share a prize pool of USD 300,000 in CRO rewards.”
Speaking about the launch, Kris Marszalek, CEO of Crypto.com, stated:
“With the Mainnet production dry run, we are entering the final stretch on the road to go-live. The Crossfire competition for validators with $300,000 in rewards is a critical part of stress testing the network before the much anticipated launch.”
Crypto also recently announced it secured an Adaptive (Tier 4) rating from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and the latest NIST Privacy Framework, developed by the US Department of Commerce. The crypto portal claims that it is the first cryptocurrency company to achieve this level with the NIST and the privacy network. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework notably provides a framework of security guidance for how private sector organizations can develop, assess and improve their ability to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from cyber-attacks.
