  • Arbitrum and Optimism have seen significant growth in the number of users and TVLs over the last few months
  • Metis, an Optimism fork, aims to provide another optimistic rollup framework with a different optimization between transaction throughput and decentralization
  • Metis’ native governance token, METIS, is already in circulation and Metis aims to bring its protocol to Ethereum mainnet in October
