Layer 2 blockchain Manta Pacific has chosen to integrate Celestia’s modular data availability solution to reduce user transaction fees.
The partnership aims to empower Manta with Celestia’s data availability sampling, enabling light nodes to verify data availability without downloading the entire block.
Kenny Li, co-founder and core contributor at Manta Network, expressed enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating,
“We’re leveling up Manta Pacific by taking it to Celestia to benefit our users with a more cost-effective and secure network environment.”
This decision mirrors a broader trend within the blockchain ecosystem, as other rollup projects, such as Polygon Labs and Arbitrum, also opt to integrate Celestia’s data availability solution. Notably, Polygon Labs’ chain development kit incorporates Celestia’s solution to reduce costs for Layer 2 chains within its ecosystem, while Arbitrum has announced a similar integration for its Orbit stack.
Manta Pacific has experienced rapid growth, reaching a total value locked of $18 million in just over two months since its mainnet launch in September. The project’s developer, p0x Labs, secured $25 million in funding this July in a round led by Polychain Capital.
