Complete Eldfell (Taiko L3 testnet) Quests for Potential Airdrop
Taiko’s fourth testnet, Eldfell L3 (alpha-4), is live. This testnet is designed to test two new features: deploying Taiko on Taiko as an L3 inception layer and testing a new staking-based prover economics.
Inception layers are a new way to scale blockchains. They allow a blockchain to be built on top of another blockchain, which can lead to significant improvements in scalability and performance. Taiko’s Eldfell L3 testnet is the first time an inception layer has been used to scale a ZK-rollup.
