NervosNews, Releases & Updates

Today Nervos launched a new and improved Nervos Layer 2 – Godwoken. Over the course of the next few weeks numerous dApps and projects will be launching on this 100% EVM-compatible Optimistic rollup. It’s an exciting time as the future of the Nervos ecosystem growth starts now!

L2 New Benefits 

100% EVM-compatible Optimistic Roll-up

Now 100% EVM-compatible, the Nervos Layer 2 enables projects building across a variety of sectors, including DeFi, gaming, and NFTs, to easily create or quickly port their dApps. Additionally, projects will benefit from instant interoperability to other chains, allowing them to organically expand their audiences—a vital part of growing a successful project.

Faster Transactions 

Thanks to an improvement on the Web RPC Layer which increases the transaction capacity of the network, completing transactions on Nervos Layer 2 is faster than ever. Interacting with dApps within the current and future ecosystem will now be a fluid, seamless experience for all users. 

Open Access and Support

After a previously months-long whitelisting period, now all dApps and projects are free to build on the newly launched Layer 2 in a permissionless environment, marking a significant development milestone as Nervos moves toward its long-term goal of true decentralization.
