L2 Network Mantle has introduced its mainnet alpha with a modular design that allows for easy upgrades and improved security. The launch follows a merger deal with BitDAO, providing support from BitDAO’s $2.4 billion treasury and added decentralization. The team has thoroughly tested the design, processing millions of transactions and passing security audits. Mantle’s modular structure separates various on-chain activities into different layers, aiming to provide low-cost transactions and a high-performance network while leveraging Ethereum’s security model. The network also received contributions from well-known venture firms such as Animoca Ventures, Hashkey Capital, and Pantera Capital.
