L3 Summit: Dubai Edition is a zkLink-initiated event series that educates, amplifies, and shares research about the current status of Layer 3 development from the world's leading Layer 1 and Layer 2 blockchain protocols.

​Layer 3s are a third layer built on top of Ethereum Layer 2 Rollups that deliver higher scalability, lower gas costs, and greater app-specific customizability. Layer 3s are poised to be the future of building interoperable dApp infrastructures and Ethereum scaling solutions.

​The L3 Summit brings together the world's best protocols such as zkSync, Starknet, Scroll, Linea, Polygon, Manta, Mantle, Kakarot, Taiko, Celestia, Eigen Layer, and more..., to push forward the boundaries of Layer 3 innovation and break through the blockchain trilemma.
