Considered a unique synthetic layer, AltLayer introduces various innovations, empowering developers to maximize resource utilization.

What is AltLayer?

AltLayer is a decentralized protocol designed to streamline the deployment of both native and restaked rollups, incorporating both optimistic and ZK rollup stacks.

AltLayer introduces a rollup framework known as Restaked Rollups. These Restaked Rollups leverage the capabilities of:

  • Rollup stacks to autonomously initiate application-specific instances across various major rollup solutions.

  • EigenLayer’s restaking mechanism to kickstart the network by borrowing economic security from the Ethereum platform.



Restaked Rollups: An integrated framework for application-specific rollups that harnesses EigenLayer’s restaking mechanism, delivering heightened security, decentralization, interoperability, and swift crypto-economic finality.

VITAL: An AVS where operators verify blocks and the corresponding states committed by the rollup sequencer, raising fraud-proof challenges if deemed necessary.

MACH: A protocol designed to expedite finality for rollups by enabling operators to restake Ethereum-based assets, reinforcing any claims made on the rollup state.

SQUAD: Introducing decentralized sequencing with economic backing. This approach eliminates short-term liveness concerns, mitigates issues such as bad MEV (Miner Extractable Value), and addresses rent extractions, distinguishing it from rollups operating with a single sequencer.

Ephemeral Rollups: In the context of ephemeral rollups, a dApp developer anticipating a surge in demand for their application could:

  • Swiftly deploy a rapid and scalable rollup customized for their application, secured by a Layer 1.

  • Utilize the rollup for the required duration.

  • Conclude the lifecycle of the rollup by settling it on the Layer 1 through an “end-of-life” process.

AltLayer’s Products

  • Ephemeral Rollups are currently operational, whereas other products like VITAL, MACH, and SQUAD are undergoing testing on a private testnet.

  • Ephemeral rollups have been implemented in various use cases, including mini-games, game tournaments, NFT mint events, and more.

  • 2048 Game

  • Loot Royale: 134k game rooms

  • Cellula: 1.4MM Cellula NFT minted with 1.9MM transactions across 612k wallets
