Poll: for the rest of 2023, if you had to pick one L2/sidechain to fully commit to in terms of usage, development, culture, etc., which would it be? 1. Optimism 2. Arbitrum 3. Polygon zkEVM 4. zkSync 5. Base 6. Scroll 7. none, can’t do it 8. other
love that you posed this question and was initially still unsure if id choose op or arbi and honestly the replies saying base are kinda based fuck it lets send base or scroll
I vote 1 btw
Base is not Mainnet. And we shouldn’t wait around. Excited for what @jessepollak is up to. But, moving to an L2 now is important. My answer is Optimism.
2 Fully EVM compatible And I could actually make money
7 (can't do it). but 2 (Arbitrum) if forced.
7 pretty much love to experiment on all and at some point they all need some connective tissue. also different, light-ask opportunities are way more appealing than one big gamble (especially with the context of DeFi summer and '21DAO szn)
we obviously would love to support anyone building on base! one other fun fact is if you build on optimism, building on base is identical and will get easier and easier over time. the superchain ftw!
Need to wait to see if any decentralize
1, because ✨Superchain✨
1 cuz of superchain
I'd say Optimism.
3, Polygon has been doing some great BizDev. Yet, early to pick only one, I think. As I am not sure if any alone could handle a quickly growing community. As in really quickly growing. Would argue that it/they likely will have Ethereum as base layer. Let's see, thank you for asking, Nir 🤝
Excluding the centralized factor. 1 & 6
Arbitrum, Polygon, Base. In that order. Arbitrum’s community, onchain interaction, devs, and fraud proofing are unparalleled right now. There’s a reason why games are being built on there. Polygon’s zkEVM and team are very good. Only issue is the deep reorgs with their Bor consensus. Base because Coinbase
Arbitrum But will love to explore base.
Starknet of course ;-)
3 doing great bizdev
1 or 5
