A summary of the crypto trends for the week.
Layer 2 is coming soon™
For far too long the way to scale was to use a Proof of Authority sidechain secured by the (significant) reputation of the authorities. Low cost, fast but not exactly trustless.
Soon™ there will be a plethora of options using Layer 2 scaling. I recommend reading the list by Philippe and Vitalik’s tweet storm of what is coming.
Given that gas prices are still around 20 Gwei (https://www.ethgasstation.info/), these can’t come soon enough.
OMG Network V1 Public Mainnet Beta
It feels like it has been a long wait. It has been two years since the OmiseGO Holiday Special.
OmiseGO is now OMG Network.
The Mainnet Beta is Single operator, ETH & ERC20 transfers for now.
State of Eth2
Nice overview of the current state of Eth2.
