Golden Sentinel丨Synthetix launches the test network of the second layer expansion plan of Ethereum



What's been the biggest complaint about Ethereum lately? It must be that the gas fee is too expensive. Therefore, it is reasonable for DeFi projects to move towards layer 2 expansion.

On September 25, 2020, Synthetix announced the launch of the Optimistic Ethereum L2 testnet, the second-tier expansion solution of Ethereum, which means that users can conduct fast transactions on the second-tier network. The test function will be available to stakers with 1 to 2,500 SNX, and synthetixDAO will provide 50,000 SNX tokens every week as rewards for participating in the testnet staking, and the rewards will last for 4 weeks.

Synthetix said that Synthetix announced the launch of the second layer expansion plan of Ethereum. The goal is to hold less SNX token holders. Due to the high price of Ethereum Gas, they have been excluded from mortgage SNX in recent months. The first phase is an incentivized testnet to try to stake SNX on Optimistic Ethereum.

Jinse Finance Market Report | BTC fell rapidly last night, and the risk aversion sentiment in the market faded: According to the Huobi market, Bitcoin continued to decline last night, with the lowest test value at 11,130 USDT. It rebounded to around 11,300 USDT in the morning and then began to trade sideways. The decline was mainly affected by the state of the global economy. Russia registered the world's first COVID-19 vaccine yesterday, U.S. bond yields rose rapidly, and Germany's economic sentiment index was much better than expected. In the evening, the market was very optimistic about the progress of the economic recovery, so the demand for safe-haven assets with zero interest rates has decreased , causing gold and bitcoin to fall sharply. As of 10:00, the specific performance of the mainstream coins on the Huobi platform is as follows. [2020/8/12]

This is a huge milestone for Synthetix and Optimistic Ethereum, and Ethereum as a whole. Because Optimistic Ethereum is the only general-purpose Ethereum Layer 2 solution, "generalization" means that there is no need to build specific functions to support existing L1 protocols. For the DeFi ecosystem, launching SNX staking on Optimistic Ethereum is a key step towards full scalability, truly making open financial infrastructure accessible to everyone without high gas fees.
