Request for Builders
March 23rd, 2023
We recently launched Base, a secure, low-cost, developer friendly Ethereum L2. Our vision is to collectively work towards an ambitious goal: bringing the next billion users onchain. One of our values from the beginning has been “Base is for everyone” and we’re so grateful to see builders around the world starting to make Base their home.
Decentralizing Base with the OP Stack and Optimism
February 23rd, 2023
Tl;DR We believe that decentralization is critical to an open cryptoeconomy. That’s why we will be deploying Base as the second L2 on the open-source OP Stack, following Optimism Mainnet, and joining as the second core developer of the OP Stack to accelerate that decentralized future. We’re excited to collaborate with OP Labs and the Optimism Collective to build on our shared vision for scaling Ethereum via a robust, interoperable web3 ecosystem that can onboard the next billion users into web3.
