A summary of the crypto trends for the week.
Rollup-centric Ethereum roadmap
Rollup adoption is coming soon™ and I am optimistic that Optimism will be the VHS of Layer 2 due to the ease of migration. Once we have ETH2 Phase 1 we can then see even greater scaling.
Zinken ETH2 Phase 0 testnet
Spadina testnet genesis was a little bumpy, Zinken is another chance to practice genesis before Phase 0 goes live.
Genesis deposits due Thursday, October 8th at 12 UTC.
Genesis ~ Monday, October 12th at 12 UTC.
POAPs on xDAI
Nice to see POAPs move to xDAI, so we can see increased experimentation and I can start claiming.
In the medium term I see application classes moving to Layer 2 rather than sidechains.
