Layer 2 is a fancy new term that has been gaining more visibility and popularity recently. It seems that the approaching Ethereum merge is one of the reasons so many enthusiasts use this fancy word which means a scalability solution that operates on the underlying foundation of a blockchain network guaranteeing security.
While many think that Layer 2 is something specific to Ethereum, other famous examples include the Lightning network for Bitcoin and a wide range of rollups built on Ethereum. An L2 network can operate independently and offer scalability opportunities to all its users.
Myria is a unique gaming platform that now offers a new ZK-Rollups system to allow the network to handle much larger volumes of transactions. Now, Myria is capable of handling over 9000 transactions per second without any gas fees or commissions. The network will benefit from the security offered by Ethereum.
Myria is a promising platform that offers many interesting tools for game developers who would like to deploy their games with NFT marketplaces and P2E mechanics. Even before the announcement of offering L2 solutions, the company received over 100 applications from developers who would like to work with Myria. Now, the number of dev teams that will consider using products of Myria will grow.
The platform is focused on blockchain and crypto-adjacent games. Some play-to-earn projects like Moonville Farms and many competitive titles plan to sell NFTs and create interesting unique collections of cosmetic items. Many game developers who want to work with Myria focus on the implementation of NFTs.
In general, the news about the new scalability solution for the gaming industry comes at a critical moment when the whole community is preparing for the upcoming Ethereum merge. The results of this event can significantly affect all L2 platforms and throw off many projects like Myria. It seems that they see this possibility and want to hype up the merge by making a big announcement.
It is good for those who want Ethereum to succeed after the merge. Hopefully, we will hear more about other projects preparing to deploy new upgrades after the merge.
