Flare Network, a scalable, low carbon, low cost and highly decentralized smart contract platform that runs the Ethereum Virtual Machine and utilizes Federated Byzantine Agreement-based consensus, has just announced its Canary Network, Songbird, has launched and successfully exited an initial 10-day observation mode.
Flare’s Canary Network, Songbird, was launched just a few weeks ago, in particular, on September 16. It is expected to follow three preset phases while it proceeds to be used to test and harden the underlying protocols comprising the eventual launch of the Flare Network.
The Observation Mode, which is the first of these phases, was finalized on Monday, September 27, at 14:00 GMT.

It must be noted that this first phase has allowed to deploy and test the underlying network as well as the Flare Time Series Oracle (FTSO).
As far as the remaining two protocols is concerned, the State-connector and the F-asset contracts will subsequently be deployed on Songbird for testing prior to the final launch of the Flare Network.
Thanks to these protocols, these tokens, some not having native smart contracts (while others do), will be able to directly access and be scalably used on Flare in dApps such as fast and complex payments, Metaverses, NFTs, DeFi and Gaming.
It is not surprising that a lot of DeFi projects, data providers, exchanges, wallets and custodians, plan to support and launch and test their own apps on Songbird including Gala Games, 888 TNW, Trustline, Global Esports Federation, Delchain, Lena Instruments, Flare Finance, Ola Finance, Flare Metrics and more.
