What is LightLink?

LightLink is an Ethereum Layer 2 blockchain that lets dApps and enterprises offer users instant, gasless transactions.

Since 2017, we've been developing blockchain solutions for major enterprises in the APAC region. Recognizing the need for broader interoperability, we shifted our focus to building L2, aiming to bridge dApps with millions of users from our enterprise partners and foster an interconnected economy.

As the first L2 to leverage Optimum architecture with a proprietary stack, LightLink aims to support 10,000+ TPS at under $0.01, without gas spikes.

LightLink's novel Enterprise Mode enables businesses to operate gas-free, allowing users on their platforms to engage in a secure, user-friendly blockchain network without transaction fees, barriers to entry, or the need for any tokens.

LightLink already powers over 30 partnerships, including Animoca Brands, and is being integrated in Translucia, a US$300 million venture by T&B Media Global.

With LightLink in its early stages, we offer developers a less saturated liquidity space and the unique opportunity to scale dApps in a zero gas fee environment, while maintaining connectivity with the vast Ethereum ecosystem for broader reach and integration.

Mission

LightLink's mission is to seamlessly integrate millions into the digital economy through user-focused dApps and enterprise partnerships, making blockchain as intuitive and accessible as Web2, without the complexity of gas fees and protocols.

We anticipate that most users are unfamiliar with the mechanics of gas fees or the cost of 1 gwei in USD, just as they don’t concern themselves with TCP or IPv4/IPv6 protocols while using Web2. Our goal is to offer them all the on-chain benefits, such as permissionless access and a digital economy, without the blockchain complexities that early enthusiasts have become familiar with.

Tech Stack and EVM Equivalence

LightLink is a fully EVM-equivalent chain with Celestia underneath. Our proprietary stack and industry-leading infrastructure offer full on-chain advantages, allowing users to experience blockchain's network effects without the technical complexity.

LightLink is the first L2 leveraging Optimum architecture with its proprietary stack, which separates the consensus, execution, and data availability layers. This enables it to reach 10,000+ TPS at under $0.01, without gas spikes.

LightLink isn't a fork. Instead, it is built on a proprietary stack and utilizes Ethereum Optimistic Rollups along with a battle-tested Geth (go-ethereum) client.

Solidity is the most popular smart contract programming language in the world. We don’t want to reinvent the wheel, so we are utilizing it and the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

LightLink employs the Geth (go-ethereum) codebase to achieve full compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Developers can write their smart contracts in Visual Studio Code, test them with standard toolchains like Ganache, deploy them using Hardhat, and interact with LightLink using other familiar tools.

It all allows developers to migrate and scale their dApps on LightLink without the need to rewrite their code.
