Blockchain Gaming Platform Myria Launches Layer 2 Scaling Solution on Ethereum

Myria announced today, August 30, the release of an Ethereum (ETH) Layer 2 (L2) scaling solution focused on blockchain gaming to enable fast and secure transactions as well as zero gas fees for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain games.

Notably, the launch of Myria L2 includes a full suite of developer and gamer-centric products, including the Myria Developer SDK, Myria Wallet, and NFT Marketplace. These tools notably allow users and producers to use the scalability advantages offered by the protocol, according to a press release from Myria shared with Finbold.

Myria’s L2 uses StarkWare’s Zero-Knowledge Rollup (ZK-Rollup) technology which allows it to process up to 9,000 transactions per section (TPS), which is a significant increase over Ethereum’s rate of less of 50 GST.

Additionally, blockchain and NFT game users can establish their own Myria wallets in “one click”, issue, exchange and transfer NFTs instantly with no gas fees and 100% carbon neutral.

Brendan Duhamel, co-founder of Myria, said:

“We are incredibly fortunate to have such a strong community eager to join Myria L2. With this launch, the team is thrilled to finally see our vision come to life,” said Brendan Duhamel, co-founder of Myria.

The Myria Developer solution adopts an API-centric strategy, simplifying complex blockchain interactions using Myria’s collection of REST APIs and Software Development Kits (SDKs). This allows a developer to create any NFT product, such as a blockchain game, in hours without needing to learn blockchain coding languages ​​such as solidity.

Duhamel added:

“We are extremely excited to take the industry to the next level with what we have built. We see huge potential in the underlying technology we’ve built to support NFT scalability and believe blockchain gaming will be the next big vertical for NFTs. That’s why we’ve created NFT solutions specifically designed to serve game developers and game builders. We’re just getting started!”

More than one million verified users on Myria

Moreover, the platform, with more than 1.2 million verified registered users, currently has more than 100 projects that are powered by Myria already before the introduction of its L2. This was accomplished by delivering the value of its L2 through a frictionless blockchain development experience.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the Myria team continues to grow with over 150 employees who are stalwarts in the gaming and blockchain industries, having previously worked for companies like Ubisoft, EA, Riot Games, Blizzard Activision, Tencent, Chainlink (LINK) and BitMex, among others.
