Ethereum scaling, lower gas fees, and lowering the barrier to entry in the ecosystem

As we mentioned in our last Journey article, the team has been working on L2 as a top priority and it is finally here. For the last several months, the gas fees have been a major hurdle for new users to take part in the Dev ecosystem. We know this update has been highly requested and we are happy to bring it to the community. We see implementation on an L2 as a new age for the Dev Protocol as we get ever closer to making our vision a reality. We hope you are as excited as we are!

What is L2 and Arbitrum?

Arbitrum is the earliest to launch on the mainnet and one of the most popular Ethereum scaling solutions. Arbitrum enables high-throughput, low-cost smart contracts while maintaining reliable security. It enables us to interact with smart contracts at a fraction of the cost of using Ethereum natively, all while using the same tools you use to interact with Ethereum today.

We have seen the rapid change and growth speed in this L2 ecosystem and we’re quick to start developing on it, releasing Dev Protocol L2 on Arbitrum today.

Why use Dev Protocol L2?

  • Making staking and onboarding easier
  • Fast transaction throughput

The most powerful answer as to why, is quite simple, gas fees. L2 reduces gas fees for all users to a fraction of the cost. By reducing the gas fees to a much lower level than mainnet, it will make it much easier for all of us to use the Dev Protocol on a daily basis. This alone will foster new growth for more creators and supporters to join the ecosystem.

In addition, the Dev Protocol L2 comes standard with the sToken, which means that everyone who stakes to creators has a chance to receive NFTs and Perks from creators in the future! Please stay tuned for more information about Perks.

Conclusion

We hope that this new environment will spark the growth of our ecosystem, which ultimately will impact all of the decentralized creator economy, spilling over benefits for everyone involved. We are continuously working on developing the Dev Protocol to maximize the creativity for all creators and will continue to do so.

Stay tuned and keep an eye out for the next exciting update!
