Myria, a Web3-gaming platform has launched its Layer-2 scaling solution for the Ethereum network.
Myria’s Layer-2 solution uses StarkWare’s Zero-Knowledge Rollups (or ZK-Rollups, for short), which bundles many transactions into one before executing on the Ethereum blockchain. Myria boasts that it can perform 9,000 transactions per hour, which is significantly greater than Ethereum’s Layer-1 speed of 50 TPS.
ZK-Rollups also decrease the costs associated with operating on Ethereum, and Myria claims it’s users will be able to mint, sell and buy NFTs with zero commission all while benefiting from the Ethereum’s security.
Developers looking to create projects within the Myria ecosystem will be able to do so more easily with the Myria Developer Solution, which takes an API-first approach — making interactions with Myria’s software development kits and set of REST APIs more effortless and straightforward.
Developers may also benefit from Myria’s ZK-Rollup solution and launch their own NFT projects as blockchain games without having to code in complex blockchain languages, such as Solidity. Even before the Layer-2 solution, more than 100 projects had already applied Myria’s technology, due to its frictionless integration on the blockchain.

NFT creators and collectors as well as Blockchain gamers can make Myria wallets so they can interact with the ecosystem. Myria boasts that it has more than 1.2million verified users.
Brendan Duhamel, the cofounder of Myria, said: “We are incredibly fortunate to have such a strong community eager to join the Myria L2. With this launch, the team is very thrilled to see our vision finally come to life.”
Duhamel continued to state in a press release that:
“We are incredibly excited to bring the industry this next step forward with what we’ve built. Our technology to scale NFTs is incredibly powerful and we think blockchain gaming could be the next great vertical. NFT solutions have been created to help game developers as well as game builders. We’re just getting started!”
The team developers working on Myria includes more than 150 people who have come from legendary companies in both the gaming and blockchain industries — such as EA, Riot Games, Ubisoft, Chainlink, Blizzard Activision, BitMex, Tencent and more. These world-class talents bring to the table best practices from true innovators in the industry.
Some of the games that will be available on Myria include the soon-to-be-launched NFT and play-to-earn game “Moonville Farms,” which will be launched on top of the L2 solution. The first ever play-and earn game developed by legend AB de Villiers may be of interest to sports fans. It was created in partnership with Myria, and hopes to bring blockchain gaming to millions of cricket enthusiasts around the globe.
