What is a layer 2 network? 
A layer-2 network operates on top of an underlying blockchain protocol (Ethereum). It processes transactions off of the Ethereum mainnet (Layer 1), which results in a number of benefits to developers and customers, including: 

  • Improved scalability and efficiency
  • Increased transaction speeds  
  • Reduced gas fees 
  • Consistent security measures and decentralization as the mainnet (layer 1)
