Dashboard Summary

The L2BEAT dashboard provides a comprehensive analysis and research on Ethereum layer two (L2) scaling. It offers a comparison of various Ethereum L2 systems available today. The dashboard is committed to educating users and only lists projects that match its narrow definition of L2. It defines layer two as a chain that fully or partially derives its security from layer one Ethereum so that users do not have to rely on the honesty of L2 validators for the security of their funds.

The dashboard also presents various non-trivial metrics aside from Total Value Locked (TVL) and has carefully examined each L2 project to determine the inner workings of their technology as well as the associated risks.
