    You can now deploy your own L3 rollup for $50 a month

    Crypto infrastructure startup Conduit says users can now launch their very own layer 3 with “only a few clicks.”
    Blockchain infrastructure firm Conduit has launched a new platform allowing users to build and deploy a layer-3 rollup on Ethereum or other networks for as cheap as $50 a month and as little as 15 minutes.

    Conduit announced the launch in a Feb. 21 X post, making its case that “ultra high-throughput“ layer 3s will make transactions even cheaper.

    “Base and OP Mainnet are examples of general-purpose L2 networks. They’re cheap, fast, and power hundreds of different applications,” explained Conduit in a Feb. 21 blog.

    “But some applications need even cheaper compute and dedicated blockspace. L3s allow apps to stop competing with others for blockspace and scale into their demand,” it added.

    The new features came just a week after Conduit announced a similar solution for layer 2 rollups on Feb. 15.

    The cheapest $50 monthly plan allows a rollup to be built on Ethereum’s Sepolia testnet, though the heftier $3,000 a month plan allows users to deploy on mainnet, according to Conduit’s deployment app.

    The Conduit app allows users to choose either Optimism’s OP Stack or Arbitrum Orbit as a rollup framework, then Ethereum, Base, Zora, or Mode as the settlement layer where the rollup transactions are verified. Users can also have rollup transaction data posted to either Ethereum or Celestia.

    The L3 additions were described as a “big day for the +1M rollups believers” by David Hoffman, a host on Ethereum show Bankless, while Paradigm’s head of market development, Nick Martitsch, said there’s never been an easier way to launch a rollup to date.

    Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin previously argued that layer 3s could provide “customized functionality” to users’ on-chain needs in a September 2022 post.

    However, he wasn’t a fan of simply stacking the same scaling scheme on top of itself.

    But, “a three-layer architecture where the second layer and third layer have different purposes, however, can work,” Buterin said.
