Mantle DAO and FTX holdings: A critical decision
Currently, Mantle DAO is evaluating a proposal that would prohibit the conversion of BIT tokens held by FTX Group into the new MNT token. Previously, Alameda Research, a branch of the FTX Group, swapped 3.4 million FTT tokens for a staggering 100 million BIT tokens, which equated to around $43 million. Yet FTX's descent into bankruptcy prompted DAO members to introduce this proposal. MNT is a token that was launched as Mantle's L2 mainnet went live. The blockchain was established by the Bybit exchange, which initiated the merge of BIT (BitDAO) and MNT tokens. Controversies aside, there's robust support for this proposal within the Mantle enclave, spotlighting the overarching investor community's interests.
Coinbase's blockchain surpasses L2 titans
Base, engineered on OP Stack as a second layer network, has managed to surpass Arbitrum and Optimism in the number of daily transactions this week. Data from The Block highlighted that on August 15, Base's moving average reached 610,000 transactions, while the counts for Arbitrum and Optimism stood at 576,000 and 597,000, respectively. Although Optimism currently holds a slight lead, overall, the networks are closely competing.
What's up with Base?
The TVL of Coinbase's blockchain has surged to $146 million following its mainnet launch, surpassing StarkNet's TVL of $112 million. What's particularly striking is that roughly 87% of Base's TVL is held in ETH. However, the network's throughput still has room for improvement, with its TPS standing at roughly 5.81. For comparison, here are the TPS figures of other L2 solutions: Optimism — 6.88 Arbitrum One — 7.26 zkSync Er — 10.72
