Celer, Hop Protocol, HashFlow, deBridge and other cutting-edge Ethereum-based solutions have joined Arbitrum Odyssey as technical partners.
DeFi enthusiasts will be able to use bridge solutions; those that ended up using the bridge that had the most wallets bridging into Arbitrum will be eligible for an NFT airdrop.
After “Bridge Week” is over, every week, two of the technical partners will announce two separate tasks. All testers will also be eligible for limited NFT distributions.
Amid market carnage, Arbitrum controls over 50% of all L2s’ TVL
Arbitrum is the most important second-layer solution for Ethereum (ETH) dApps. Per statistics shared by the L2Beat project, it is responsible for 50.68% of the aggregated TVL of all mainstream platforms.
As L2s’ total value locked (TVL) metrics plummeted over 50% since its peak registered on April 1, 2022, it dropped below mid-October 2021 levels.
In the past seven days, the dropdown accelerated: the net TVL of major L2s plunged to $3.78 billion. Aztec, ImmutableX and dYdX are among the worst sufferers of this carnage.
