This newsletter is made possible thanks to Celer Network!

Celer is a coherent layer-2 scaling platform on Ethereum. Their submission to Reddit Great Scaling Bakeoff talks about their in-production matching uses cases, why they believe state channel offers the right tradeoffs for the use cases and performance benchmarks. They also propose the concept of Layer-2 LEGO to have multiple different layer-2 techniques working together to address all current and future use cases in a coherent way.
