About Boba Network

The Boba Network team is creating the People's Ethereum Layer 2 by reducing the barriers of adoption for users and developers. We are empowering DeFi and NFT projects to scale more cost-effectively while delivering a smoother user experience. Boba's Hybrid Compute technology will enable developers across the Ethereum ecosystem to build dApps that invoke code executed on web-scale infrastructure, making it possible to leverage sophisticated algorithms that are either too expensive or impossible to execute on-chain.

Boba also offers fast exits that are backed by community-driven liquidity pools, shrinking the conventional Optimistic Rollup withdrawal period from seven days to only a few minutes, while giving liquidity providers an opportunity to generate yield on their crypto assets. Boba Network went mainnet live in September 2021, and has since grown to >$300 Million in Total Value Locked.
