- Beacon Layer Empowerment: AltLayer’s Beacon Layer serves as a foundational hub for sequencing, execution, and verification, enabling efficient launch and management of application-specific rollups.
- User-Friendly Rollup Creation: AltLayer’s no-code Rollups-as-a-Service launchpad empowers developers, beginners, and users to effortlessly craft personalized rollups within minutes.
AltLayer, a decentralized provider of Rollups-as-a-Service (RaaS) for Web3 applications, has secured investment from Binance Labs, the venture capital and incubation division of Binance.
The Investment Director at Binance Labs, Nicola W., highlighted that AltLayer’s approach to application-tailored rollups caught their attention due to its utilization of a Beacon Layer to facilitate the launch of these rollups. This approach combines the security of Layer 1 with the customization benefits of appchains, aiming to reduce time-to-market and foster innovation.
AltLayer operates as an open and decentralized protocol tailored for developers to launch scalable application-specific rollups. This protocol features the Beacon Layer, functioning as a central sequencing, execution, and verification network for all associated rollups.
On top of this foundation, AltLayer provides a user-friendly Rollups-as-a-Service launchpad that enables developers, beginners, and users to create custom rollups within minutes through a no-code approach.
The AltLayer protocol is designed to accommodate a multi-chain and multi-VM environment, with built-in support for EVM/WASM. It operates as a modular and pluggable scaling solution for compatible chains, allowing seamless integration.
Dr. Yaoqi Jia, CEO of AltLayer, emphasized the burgeoning potential of the rollup ecosystem, noting its appeal to the global developer community over the past year. AltLayer’s successful demonstrations, involving on-chain games, NFT minting events, and SocialFi applications, have showcased the value of this detachable blockchain layer.
AltLayer has collaborated with prominent industry players like EigenLayer, Espresso, Celestia, Double Jump, Arbitrum, Linea, and Jump to enhance rollup usability by integrating key features.
The strategic investment from Binance Labs is expected to strengthen the rollup ecosystem further and contribute to its expansion, bolstering AltLayer’s efforts in this domain.
