Balancer Protocol Launches on Optimism in Collaboration with Beethoven X
New York, New York - June 2, 2022 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Balancer Protocol has launched on leading Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution Optimism to significantly reduce gas costs and scale DeFi liquidity. Ethereum's challenges have led to prohibitive fees, creating an extreme barrier to entry for users of decentralized finance. Balancer's technology launching on Optimism ensures DeFi liquidity provision with the scope for sustainable, scalable, innovative growth that is highly competitive in the L2 network.
"By launching on Optimism, Balancer is recognizing that it is a leading L2 solution. Its distinctive scalability, while inheriting Ethereum's security, led to the recognition that it will enhance the user experience and propel growth. L2s show the promise of reducing transaction fees and network congestion, and we are excited to bring our technology to the Optimism ecosystem." - Fernando Martinelli, Balancer Labs CEO & Co-Founder.
The front end of the Optimism deployment will be led by Balancer's collaboration with Beethoven X. The cumulative expertise from both teams results in a DEX with the technical prowess and innovative capabilities needed to become a formidable player in the Optimism ecosystem.
Optimism supports all DApps in the Ethereum network by using a technique known as optimistic rollups. Optimistic rollups assume all transactions in the rollup are valid, thereby increasing Ethereum's transactions per second and drastically decreasing fees - securing over $600 million in on-chain value.
Exceedingly expensive transaction fees, growing network congestion, and an inability to scale significantly stifle the growth of the $600 billion Ethereum network. Currently, Ethereum can only support around 30 transactions per second, resulting in the aforementioned issues.
"We are incredibly excited to see Balancer going live on Optimism. Balancer is an important DeFi building block and seeks to bring a more flexible trading experience to the ecosystem. Moreover, working with the excellent Balancer and Beethoven X teams represents an awesome chance to learn from decentralized governance 'in the wild' - a journey that we recently began ourselves." - Ben Jones, Chief Scientist at Optimism Foundation
Balancer's technological capabilities to slash gas costs, super-charge capital efficiency, and unlock arbitrage with zero-token starting capital paired with Optimism's scaling solutions will help answer the demands of the fast-evolving DeFi environment.
