After announcing the development roadmap on Layer-2 solutions in mid-July, Lido recently updated the blueprint for this step.
Last month, Lido Finance first posted its intention to deploy products on Layer-2 solutions, allowing users to stake stETH at an optimal cost directly. Recently, details about this plan were announced by Lido on the platform’s Twitter.
Accordingly, the implementation steps of the plan include: establishing a token bridge with Layer-2 solutions, firstly Arbitrum and Optimism; putting infrastructures that can be upgraded in the future to support ETH staking on L2; running administrative contracts so that Layer-2 will also have the same voting features as Mainnet L1.
During the token bridging phase, because of the complex nature of stETH (a form of token rebase – with balances that change over time), Lido will start with wstETH (the wrapped token version of stETH).
The team also shared that the bridges to Arbitrum and Optimism have been set up but are set to “Pause” mode – suspended, disabled. After taking a snapshot and voting, this step will be officially implemented.
With Layer-2 solutions, especially Roll-ups, witnessing many strong developments, the presence of Lido on these platforms will help the Layer-2 ecosystem to be more vibrant next time.
