Prisma Introduces LRT-Backed Stablecoin

Prisma Finance unveiled ULTRA, a new stablecoin fully collateralized by Liquid Restaked Tokens (LRTs), powered through a new lending protocol called PrismaLRT. The new stablecoin expands Prisma Finance's existing mkUSD stablecoin, which is backed by Liquid Staking Tokens. The first LRT to be accepted will be EtherFi's weETH. The addition will be integrated into Prisma's existing user interface and governed by PRISMA token holders. LRTs are receipt tokens issued protocols for natively restaked ETH on EigenLayer, offering enhanced yield and liquidity. PrismaLRT depositors gain access to PRISMA emissions in addition to underlying points and staking APY.

Linea Deploys Alpha V2 Mainnet

Linea, an EVM-equivalent ZK-rollup by ConsenSys, deployed its Alpha V2 to mainnet. The update brings significant reductions to gas fees for the Layer 2 network by incorporating proof aggregation and data compression. With proof aggregation, the system bundles multiple transaction batches into a single final proof. The Linea prover leverages a lossless compression algorithm to process compressed inputs, enabling a 66% reduction in gas fees for end users when compared to Alpha 1 mainnet. Upcoming support for EIP-4844 will further reduce data posting costs for the rollup.

L2 Ecosystem Reaches $25B TVL

The TVL in all Ethereum L2 networks is now more than $25 billion, according to data from L2Beat. Arbitrum One is still the leading rollup by TVL with assets worth $12.3 billion on the chain. OP Mainnet's TVL stands at just over $6 billion. A year ago, the TVL for the entire Ethereum L2 ecosystem was below $5 billion. The top seven leading chains are optimistic rollups. zkSync is the largest ZK rollup with just over $500 million in TVL.
