About Event

The L3 Summit: Istanbul Edition is a community initiative to educate, raise awareness, and share research from protocols building the future of dApp infrastructure for Ethereum.

ETH-based L3s will soon become a critical innovation to unlock hyper-scalability, interoperability, customizability, and privacy for builders and end users.

In this event, learn more about the technology that will be available for developers to build fast, secure, and seamless dApps for specific use cases in DeFi, GameFi, SocialFi, and more.

About Event Partners

About zk.Link

​The First ZKP based cross-rollup, multi-chain trading execution layer. Empowering the next-gen DEX with ETH security, unified liquidity, and high scalability.

About BNB Chain

Business Development and Sales Executive who incubated multiple $1B+ businesses at BNB Chain, Scroll, Chainlink Labs, NetApp, Microsoft, Avanade, and Accenture. Expert at building global teams accountable for sales, strategy, and partnerships. 20 years of experience launching world-class go-to-market initiatives with a focus on Blockchain, Web3, and Cloud.

About Celestia

Celestia is the first modular data availability network that securely scales with the number of users, making it easy for anyone to launch their own blockchain. It is a minimal blockchain that decouples execution from consensus by introducing a new primitive, data availability sampling.

About Consensys

Consensys is the leading blockchain and web3 software company. Since 2014, Consensys has been at the forefront of innovation, pioneering technological developments within the web3 ecosystem.

About dappOS

dappOS V2 is an intent-centric Web3 operating protocol providing CeFi-like user experience and a complete decentralization with powerful features of unified account, support for task dependency and a new bidding system.

About Eigen Layer

Eigen Layer, a market for shared security to hyperscale ethereum, provides developers with access to the Ethereum staked capital base and decentralized validator set.

About Kakarot

Kakarot is a Type 2.5 ZkEVM written in Cairo, a Turing-complete programming language.

About Linea

​A developer-ready zkEVM rollup for scaling Ethereum dapps. Check out all the ecosystem dapps here

About Manta

Manta Network is the modular blockchain for zero-knowledge applications. Manta Pacific, its L2 ecosystem, provides a scalable and inexpensive gas-fee environment for ZK applications to deploy simply using Solidity. It leverages modular DA with Celestia and is one of the largest OP Stack chains with zkEVM in its future roadmap leveraging Polygon CDK.

About Mantle

Mantle Ecosystem is built around Mantle Network, an EVM-compatible L2 technology stack for scaling Ethereum. Mantle Network is the first DAO-spawned L2, partnering with ETH restaking protocol EigenLayer for a separate data availability module and is secured by Ethereum.

About Polygon

Polygon zkEVM Beta is the leading ZK scaling solution that is equivalent to Ethereum Virtual Machine: The vast majority of existing smart contracts, developer tools and wallets work seamlessly.

About Scroll

Scroll seamlessly extends Ethereum’s capabilities through zero knowledge tech and EVM compatibility. The L2 network built by Ethereum devs for Ethereum devs.

Built and deploy on Scroll just like on Ethereum

About Taiko

decentralized, Ethereum-equivalent ZK-Rollup.

About zkSync

The ZK Stack will allow anyone to launch their own sovereign and customizable Hyperchain. Hyperchains will be connected by Hyperbridges, providing seamless interoperability and unified liquidity for the whole ecosystem. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg, fractal scaling, L3s, proof aggregators, layered aggregation, fast messaging, and atomicity are all potential options for Hyperchains. Explore the landscape with us!
