Mantle v2 testnet (Sepolia) is now available. For more information about Mantle v1, please see this page.
Mantle Network is dedicated to building an EVM-compatible scaling solution for Ethereum. This means that all contracts and tools running on Ethereum can operate on the Mantle Network with minimal modifications. Taking advantage of its modular architecture, Mantle Network combines an optimistic rollup with various innovative data availability solutions, providing cheaper and more accessible data availability while inheriting the security of Ethereum.
Our protocol design philosophy aims to offer users a less costly and more user-friendly experience, provide developers with a simpler and more flexible development environment, and deliver a comprehensive set of infrastructure for the next wave of mass-adopted dApps.
Key Features of Mantle Network
- Built as a Rollup
- Utilizes Ethereum validators and consensus protocols to significantly reduce gas fees, decrease latency, and increase throughput. Users can customize transaction confirmation requirements to provide near real-time confirmation latency with minimal security settings.
- Modular Architecture
- Unlike traditional monolithic chains that execute transaction execution, consensus, settlement, and storage at the same network layer, Mantle separates these functions into individual modules as a modular chain. These include an EVM-compatible execution layer developed by Mantle for transaction execution, a consensus layer and settlement layer completed on Ethereum, and Mantle DA, powered by EigenDA technology, for v2, until EigenDA is proven stable.
- Secured by Ethereum
- L2 state transitions are verified by Ethereum validators, undergoing the same consensus and settlement processes as L1 transactions.
- Modular Data Availability
- Independent DA modules, such as Mantle DA powered by EigenLayer's EigenDA technology. Data availability is achieved through DA economic game theory involving rewards and stake slashing. According to internal assessments, this translates to potential cost savings of more than 90% compared to on-chain L1.
