The Problem

  • Users paying more in gas fees to mint NFTs than the market price of those same NFTs.
  • Users not being able to withdraw their assets from a smart contract because it costs more gas than the assets themselves are worth.
  • Users choosing not to repay a crypto loan, because the transaction fee costs more than the liquidation penalty.

The Solution

  • Zero-Knowledge (zk) rollups, and
  • Optimistic rollups
