Deep within the engine-house of the Web3 domain the unseen cogs of progress have begun to whir into motion. Following the launch of Consensys’ Linea blockchain, Coinbase is about to follow suit with its equally Impressive Base Network.
Differing slightly from its MetaMask affiliated competitor, Base will utilize Optimism Rollups as opposed to Linea’s Zero Knowledge equivalent. This essentially means that Base transactions will occur at slightly slower speeds, but will represent a more secure process as the network must first validate those transactions on chain. However, even with this delay, Base will still outperform Ethereum in nearly every way.
Layer 2 networks such as Base have come into being due to Ethereum’s tendency to become congested during periods of high transaction volume. To remedy this, a new generation of Ethereum compatible side chains have come into being that perform bulk transactions off-chain, and ease the burden on the parent network.
What this means for the average user, is that they will be able to use Ethereum compatible applications and tools with faster transaction fees and faster processing times. In addition to allowing developers to quickly deploy new decentralized applications (dApps) using the infrastructure.
