Manta's Layer-2 Blockchain Already Plans to Ditch OP Stack for Polygon

The Manta Pacific network, just a few weeks after going live as a layer-2 blockchain atop Ethereum with software from OP Labs’ OP Stack, is already planning to jump ship: Leaders of the project said Monday that the network will be retooled using a rival software package, Polygon’s Chain Development Kit (CDK). The move means that Manta Pacific, a part of the Manta Network ecosystem, will ditch its status as a so-called optimistic rollup – the core underpinning of OP Stack – to become a “ZK-rollup,” which is what Polygon’s software kit provides. The news provides yet another jolt to the increasingly competitive field of layer 2 blockchain teams.
