Builders are encouraged to challenge the narratives that blockchain projects should have utility tokens by joining Build On L2 (BOL2). The developers will work on Lightning Network solutions, while also building on Core Lightning or the Liquid Network. Core Lightning engineer Lisa Neigut stated that Lightning’s success ultimately depends on its community members. “The Build on L2 initiative brings together developers, startups, as well as other contributors, to have a conversation about their visions and scale Bitcoin. The Liquid Network, a layer-2 scaling solution, allows trading of multiple assets, including bitcoin and stablecoins. It uses a sidechain. Core Lightning is a modular Lightning implementation which allows for instant, low-cost global bitcoin micropayments. “Liquid allows the creation of a Bitcoin native financial system. SideSwap founder Scott Millar said that it contains the tools to maintain a decentralized asset registry, where securities issuance is possible. Bitcoin is the native settlement currency. We hope this vision resonates within the larger Bitcoin community. Anyone looking to get started with Liquid through Build On L2 is welcome. “BOL2 communities will also host events such as hackathons and virtual networking events. They will also host project bounties, international builders tournaments, career development programmes, mentoring, and AMA’s (Assistant Managers) with developers. At launch, the manifesto of BOL2 has already been signed by prominent Bitcoiners such as: Blockstream CEO Dr. Adam Back, well-known CLN node operator Zero Fee Routing, Breez CEO Roy Sheinfeld, and others.Tagsterms:BlockstreamLiquidLightningLayer 2Bitcoin
