Coinbase’s Base Layer 2 Blockchain to Go Public Next Week

Coinbase, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges, made waves in mid-July when it launched its Ethereum-based Layer 2 (L2) solution called ‘Base.’ Aimed at enhancing scalability and reducing transaction costs on the Ethereum network, Base was met with enthusiasm from the crypto community and developers alike.

Within just a few days of its mainnet launch, the Total Value Locked (TVL) on the Base protocol surpassed an impressive $1 million. This significant milestone highlights the rapid adoption and confidence that the platform has garnered in a short span of time. According to the details from a recent announcement, the exchange will launch Base on August 9.
