The conversation explores the concept of Layer 3 (L3) blockchains and their potential impact on the crypto industry. L3s offer unlimited customizations with near-zero gas fees, allowing for limitless creativity and experimentation. The discussion focuses on Degen, a community built on the L3 chain, and its journey from a tipping functionality on Forecaster to launching its own L3. The founders of Syndicate, the team behind Degen’s L3, explain the need for L3s and the benefits they provide to different types of applications. The conversation also touches on the future of L3s and the potential for further customization. Degen Chain, an L3 solution built on top of Ethereum, offers low gas fees and customization options for developers. The ability to customize blockchains is seen as a powerful feature, and Degen Chain aims to pull customizations from startups specializing in that space. L3s are designed for customized functionality, while L2s are for scaling. Interoperability between L3s is a vision that many in the space are pursuing, and there are different approaches to achieving it. The security and value capture of Ethereum are important considerations, but the focus should be on usage and adoption. Degen Chain is just the beginning, and there is excitement about the future development and growth of on-chain communities.
