TangleChains is a platform that is exclusively dedicated to listing and showcasing EVM and Smart Contract chains that are built on Shimmer. It provides developers with an easy-to-use platform to showcase their projects and connect with other developers in the Shimmer ecosystem.
TangleChains serves as a hub for information on smart contract chains, offering details on their RPC endpoints, one-click wallet connect and other key information.
TangleChains provides an easy and centralized way to showcase your smart contract chain's interoperability, connectivity. Other key features, like one-click connect of user-wallets to your chain, or the health status and performance of RPC endpoints to access and interact with your chain are also available. In addition it acts as a hub for Shimmer smart contract chains, allowing your and other developers in the ecosystem to easily find and connect with other chains.
At the moment Firefly does not support smart contract operations or deeplinking to connect to new network or endpoints. We are in close alignment with the team to add Firefly support after the feature is available.

TangleChains is specifically designed for the Shimmer EVM platform because of its unique characteristics and advantages for developers. Shimmer is a high-performance, feeless, and scalable DAG-based ledger and the testnet for IOTA. The network handles transactions in parallel whereas a blockchain is limited by its serial handling.
The Shimmer network is being designed to allow for bridgeless asset transfers and composability, without having to rely on (un)trusted relays or bridges. Every chain which is listed on TangleChains is able to exchange tokens and digital assets natively with any other chain on Shimmer.chains.
If you are a developer, it has never been easier create decentralized applications that are faster, more secure, and more accessible than ever before. The portal simplifies the process to find chain partners, natively interact with them and thus create a better, more secure, and streamlined customer experience:
- Bridgeless Connection: Chains on Shimmer do not require 3rd party bridges to exchange digital assets. This simplifies development and deployment processes by removing unnecessary complexity and costs associated with traditional bridge solutions
- Feeless L1: Any asset on Shimmer can be frictionlessly transferred between chains, including no transaction fees (cost reduction of doing business)
- No MEV: The Shimmer network uses a transaction order consensus that is different from other chains like Ethereum or Fantom, which means there are no front-running or sandwich attacks, resulting in a "fairer" DeFi.
- Customizability: Shimmer offers customization of VMs, governance and network parameters, which means as a developer you have more control over how your smart contract chain operates and interacts.
- Scalability: Due to its DAG based design, the Shimmer network scales with the growth of its ecosystem by going multi-chain, allowing for more capacity and increased adoption.
TangleChains is fully open source and we invite and encourage developers from the ecosystem and the community to enhance the platform with their own ideas, utility and functionality.
