Validation Cloud's Node API is Now Live on Soroban Mainnet, Stellar's Smart Contract Platform

Stellar Soroban Mainnet_Feb 2024 (1)

Soroban, the Stellar network’s smart contracts platform, is now integrated into Validation Cloud’s Node API. Validation Cloud is proud to support Soroban to help users build decentralized applications and execute smart contracts on the Stellar network with efficiency, security, and scalability. 
What is Soroban?

Soroban is the Stellar Network’s smart contracts platform, that aims to provide a developer-friendly platform for building smart contracts within the Stellar network. Smart contracts are changing how we interact with digital assets. They are self-executing code or protocols that carry out a set of instructions verified on the blockchain. Smart contracts enable automated, secure, and efficient transactions without the need for intermediaries. 

​Soroban represents the next leap in smart contract platforms—designed from the ground up to be sensible, scalable, and supremely developer-friendly. Soroban uniquely enables developers to build decentralized applications that tap into Stellar's global presence, offering innovative financial services and products that expand the possibilities of decentralized finance. While it seamlessly integrates with Stellar, enhancing the capabilities of both platforms, Soroban stands independent. ​It's an open invitation to developers from any background—whether you're working with other blockchains, layer-2 solutions, or permissioned ledgers—to explore its potential and build innovative applications. Validation Cloud is committed to providing users the best platform for building and deploying smart contracts on Stellar. 

Cheesecake Labs x Validation Cloud

As part of our integration with Soroban, Validation Cloud is excited to announce our collaboration with Cheesecake Labs, integrating our platform into their Stellar Plus library to enhance blockchain development on the Stellar network. Cheesecake Labs is a nearshore software development and design company that specializes in building blockchain solutions, web, and mobile applications. 

Our goal with Cheesecake Labs is to simplify the complexities associated with blockchain infrastructure, allowing developers to easily deploy and manage Stellar-based applications. By offering a user-friendly interface for accessing Stellar's Soroban smart contracts and other network functionalities, Validation Cloud aims to make blockchain development more accessible and efficient for a wide range of developers. This partnership with Cheesecake Labs demonstrates our commitment to reducing the barriers to entry for blockchain development and supporting the growth and innovation within the Stellar ecosystem through scalable, secure, and reliable infrastructure solutions.
