Eclipse Labs, the developer of Eclipse Layer 2, has recently announced a successful Series A funding round, raising $50 million and bringing the total raised capital to $65 million.

Leading this investment round are Placeholder and Hack VC, with other participating funds including Polychain Capital, Delphi Digital, Maven 11, DBA, Fenbushi Capital, Flow Traders, GSR, Apollo Global Management, and OKX Ventures.

According to the announcement, this new funding is earmarked for the development of Layer 2 solutions for the Ethereum network, utilizing the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM).

With the goal of integrating SVM into Ethereum, Eclipse Labs aims to provide an advanced Layer 2 solution that connects the two largest ecosystems today: Ethereum and Solana. Neel Somani, the founder of Eclipse Labs, shared in a statement:

Eclipse combines high-performance SVM with deep liquidity on Ethereum, while eliminating verification constraints

Ethereum needs a Layer 2 that is interoperable, scalable, and unique, capable of handling up to 99% of use cases

About Eclipse

Eclipse Mainnet is Ethereum’s fastest Layer 2, powered by the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM).

Eclipse Mainnet combines the best pieces of the modular stack:

  • Settlement: Ethereum – Eclipse will settle to Ethereum (i.e., the enshrined validating bridge will be on Ethereum) and use ETH as its gas token.
  • Execution: Solana Virtual Machine (SVM) – Eclipse will run the highly performant SVM as its execution environment.
  • Data Availability: Celestia – Eclipse will post its data to Celestia for scalable data availability (DA).
  • Proving: RISC Zero – Eclipse will use RISC Zero for ZK proofs of fraud (without intermediate state serialization!)

It is anticipated that the development team will launch the final mainnet version in the second quarter of this year.
