Introducing the new chain: Minterest launches on Taiko

Minterest continues its mission to enable cross-chain lending and unify fragmented liquidity through cross-chain lending., Minterest is launching on Taiko, a groundbreaking new Layer 2 solution on Ethereum. This launch represents a significant milestone in our journey to provide seamless, high-yield decentralized lending services across multiple blockchain ecosystems. Here’s everything you need to know about Taiko and why this partnership is a game-changer for our users.

What is Taiko?

Scalability and efficiency

Taiko leverages ZK-Rollups to significantly increase transaction throughput and reduce gas fees. This not only makes transactions faster but also more cost-effective, addressing one of the critical limitations of the Ethereum network.

Security and decentralization

Taiko’s architecture includes a unique contestation mechanism, ensuring data integrity even as transactions are processed off-chain. Its commitment to decentralization is evident in its permissionless structure, allowing a wide range of validators and proposers to participate, ensuring the network remains secure and open.

Compatibility and flexibility

Taiko maintains full compatibility with Ethereum, making it straightforward for developers to migrate existing dApps and leverage Taiko’s enhancements without rewriting code. This seamless integration is a significant advantage for expanding the Minterest ecosystem.

Innovative model

Taiko’s economic model involves transaction fee adaptations for its L2 network, with a focus on maintaining economic balance and fairness through staking mechanisms. This supports both scalability and security, aligning incentives with the network’s health.

The Vision Behind Taiko

Taiko was founded by Daniel Wang and Matthew Finestone, both of whom previously worked together at Loopring. With a mission to solve Ethereum’s scalability issues while maintaining full Ethereum-equivalence, Taiko has conducted multiple successful testnets and secured substantial funding to prepare for its mainnet launch.

Community and Partnerships

Taiko’s ecosystem includes strategic partnerships with various blockchain projects and technology companies, such as Dojima Network, SuperScalar, and Blockscout, to name a few. These collaborations enhance Taiko’s infrastructure, enabling seamless integration and interaction across different blockchain environments.

What This Means for Minterest Users

By launching on Taiko, Minterest users can expect several benefits:

  • Lower fees and faster transactions: Enjoy reduced gas fees and faster transaction times, enhancing your overall experience.
  • Increased yield: With Taiko’s efficient transaction processing, users can maximize their yields through our high-return lending protocols.
  • Enhanced security: Benefit from Taiko’s robust security features, ensuring your assets are safe and your transactions are secure.
  • Seamless integration: Continue to use Minterest’s platform without any disruptions, thanks to Taiko’s Ethereum-equivalent compatibility.
  • Zero-Knowledge Proofs: Taiko uses zero-knowledge proofs to validate transactions off-chain. This cryptographic method allows the network to prove that transactions are valid without revealing any specific details about the transactions themselves, ensuring privacy and efficiency.
  • ETH as gas token: Taiko utilises Ethereum’s native gas token to pay for on-chain fees, reducing friction for Ethereum mainnet users to bridge their assets and utilise the chain.
