Beijing on September 13, according to Dune Analytics statistics show that Ethernet Square Layer 2 network Arbitrum assets TVL bridge has exceeded $ 2.1 billion, which is seven days TVL growth rate of over 3,200% in the same period, Polygon , Avalanche However, the lock-up value of the competing Layer 1 network asset bridge has declined significantly.
The flow of capital has obviously told us that the next hot spot in the crypto market is likely to be Ethereum Layer 2.
And Solana, who was full of limelight before, can only be forced to stop at this moment.
Regarding what is the real Ethereum Layer 2, there is actually a good judgment, that is, whether ETH is used in the final settlement.
According to the statistics of l2beat, in the current Ethereum Layer 2 network, Arbitrum’s lock-up value ranks first, dYdX (StarkEx) temporarily ranks second, and Optimism ranks third. Obviously, the general-purpose Layer 2 network is currently The focus of market attention.
As for why Optimism and Arbitrum have opened such a big gap, there are currently several explanations:
1. According to the data of l2fees.info, in terms of transfer (ETH and token), Arbitrum’s handling fee is lower than Optimism, but it should be noted that in terms of swap transactions, the Optimism network’s handling fee is lower than Arbitrum.
2. There are far more Ethereum ecological projects that support Arbitrum than Optimism, and some project parties have provided incentives in Arbitrum to attract community members to provide liquidity (such as Balancer, SushiSwap, etc.).
3. Although Arbitrum officially stated that it will not issue tokens in the short term, some community members judged that Arbitrum’s issuance of tokens and airdrops will be a high probability event, so they have made arrangements in advance.
The Ethereum Layer 2 battle begins, Optimism may be the first to issue tokens?
From the current point of view, in this upcoming Ethereum Layer 2 battle, Arbitrum has already taken the lead, and Optimism, the first to create momentum, has been suppressed to be unable to move, then it will be caught with nothing?
Of course not. Last weekend, Optimism officially released the following intriguing tweet:
What kind of announcement can be called big news?
The big V guys speculate that Optimism may be ready to issue a token!
And when Optimism issues the token, will other Ethereum layer 2 project parties still be able to sit still?
Watch out for new scams
Although in the next period of time, these Layer 2 networks may be full of opportunities, but it should be reminded that some scam projects will also take the opportunity to mix into them.
For example, Arbitrum Today reminded today:
“Please note that when you pledge LP to Arbitrum OG, they will automatically transfer 10% of your LP tokens to an address. This rule has not been announced yet.
Beware of scams, even if the APR displayed is so high! “
