Register Billcoins as an XC-20 Shiden network

XCM Asset Registration (Billcoins - Asset Hub ID 223)

Billcoins are perhaps the first Kusama Asset Hub asset to see widespread usage, and with 767 accounts holding Billcoins, are the third most widely held asset on this parachain (after RMRK and Gear Bonus, but ahead of USDT).

Up to now, I have only given them out freely to people asking me for them on Twitter, Matrix, Subsocial, etc. I would like to add a faucet on Shiden which would allow people to add Billcoins to a vault and allow every account to claim 5 Billcoins once per day. This is based on the original Bitcoin faucet ( Free Bitcoins )

Please note that Billcoins do not have any value. Consequently, I do not plan to provide any financial incentives for this. Billcoins will continue to be freely available.


I propose to add XCM Asset BILL (Billcoins) on Shiden Network, from the Kusama Asset Hub. This will require actions on Shiden Network.


I propose to add XCM Asset Bill (Billcoins) on Shiden Network from Kusama Asset Hub. The initial use case will be to use create a Billcoin faucet on Shiden.

It is hoped that others will find uses for Billcoins in the Shiden ecosystem.

Billcoins are a Kusama-native asset and there are no plans to support them on Polkadot and/or the main Astar network itself.


There is no on-chain proposal. The proposal created in this forum acts as an official proposal with Shiden Network.

Asset Id on Polkadot Asset Hub: 223

Token information:

  • Asset name: BILLCOIN

Welcome to our family. The propsal is very interesting. We glad to have you here =)

100% AYE, welcome onboard!

In this case, we need to use Shiden for more aggressive purposes and try to stress test as much as possible. Memecoins are a way to onboard users; take Solana and Base as examples. However, it needs to be accompanied by effective marketing and targeting the right influencers and on-chain
