State of Scaling Issue 5: Nitro, Metis and dYmension

Quick Take

  • In this bi-weekly series, we look into some of the most interesting data and developments across the Layer 2 blockchain landscape, from DeFi and bridges to network activity and funding
  • The release of Nitro promises significantly lower fees, the result of certain technical improvements that also boosts the rollup’s performance
  • Metis has recently started a builder incentive program, the Metis Marathon, which aims to onboard developers and, hopefully, more users along with it
  • dYmension, a modularization framework for rollups deployed on Cosmos, has announced its development timeline and proposes how app-specific rollups could be a potential scaling solution for Cosmos
