Matter Labs, the team behind Ethereum’s layer 2 (L2) scaling protocol Zksync, reveals that developers plan to launch a layer 3 (L3) proof of concept called “Opportunity” in the first quarter of 2023. I made it L3 is built on top of his L2, allowing the developer and his Zksync users to “research and experiment with it.”
Matter Labs Discusses Roadmap Baby Alpha Milestones and L3 Proof of Concept
Shazia from the Matter Labs team on Oct. 28 announced Zksync developers have reached the baby alpha milestone of their roadmap. The developer notes that the team has started transitioning to Fair Onboarding Alpha and Full Launch Alpha. Zksync is his Ethereum L2 scaling solution, similar to project competitors Optimism, Arbitrum, Polygon Hermez, and Loopring. The baby alpha milestone marks the “end-to-end system rollout to mainnet”.
In the baby alpha milestone, Zksync developers will stress test the infrastructure with various use cases and perform security audits. The team will improve the “Zksync 2.0 technical documentation” as well as conduct contests and bug bounty programs.
In addition to the Baby Alpha milestone, Shazia mentioned an L3 proof of concept called “Opportunity.” Matter Labs revealed that in the second week of October he will create an L3 scaling solution. It was originally called “Pathfinder”. The L3 proof of concept is expected to start in Q1 2023.
“Layer 2 is the first step towards scalability, developer experience, and user experience. Brings the Starfield of the moment. A Matter Labs rep said the team offers:
- A prototype of a Layer 3 hyperchain built on top of Layer 2, allowing the ecosystem to research and experiment with it.
- Start developing developer tools, such as CLIs and SDKs for spinning off and working with Layer 3.
The news follows Ethereum’s transition from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS) on September 15th. mergeEther fees are gain up to 0.002 ethereum Or $3.31 on average Ethereum transfers after falling below the $2 range after The Merge in the last two weeks of September.
