Lattice Redstone L2 Built On OP Stack
Gaming studio Lattice unveiled Redstone, a gaming-focused L2 network built on the OP Stack. Inspired by Plasma, Redstone is an Alternative Data Availability (Alt-DA) chain designed for ultra-low-cost transactions. Instead of posting DA to L1, it posts a data commitment hash to L1 while keeping the corresponding input state offchain. Redstone features a permissionless challenge system that enables any user to dispute a data commitment on Ethereum L1 if there's any malice by a provider. Currently operational on its version of the Holesky testnet, Lattice's Redstone aims to assist game developers in creating onchain games and autonomous virtual worlds.
ENS Introduces EVM Gateway
ENS launched the EVM Gateway, a new open-source CCIP-Read framework and Solidity library that allows the fetching and verifying of state proofs from EVM chains. This gateway allows L1 smart contracts to access and validate state data from L2s. While it’s primarily designed to read calls, the gateway also supports transactions. Anyone can operate their own EVM Gateway. Gateways are trustless since their responses are fully verified on L1. Contracts can also change their target chains. The EVM Gateway is currently available on Optimism Goerli. ENS is offering a $4,000 prize pool for ETH Global participants who use the EVM Gateway in their projects.
L2Beat Releases Liveness Page
Rollup analytics platform L2Beat introduced a new liveness page dedicated to monitoring batch submissions and state updates for L2 networks in real-time. In the context of rollups, liveness signifies the guarantee of transaction processing, including sequencer and prover reliability. The new page provides insights into the frequency of L2 transaction data or state roots being posted to L1. It tracks the intervals of both state updates and batch submissions. Additionally, it features a 30-day anomaly analysis, highlighting any significant deviations from a project's average submission interval.
Raft Publishes Recovery Plan
Stablecoin protocol Raft published a recovery plan proposing 3.9 million DAI in compensation to users impacted by last week’s exploit. Eligibility for compensation, calculated based on holdings and protocol interactions as of 14th November, is limited to R token holders who did not trade post-exploit. The proposal is open for feedback until 21 November 2023, after which the plan will be implemented.
