Binance Labs makes strategic investment in AltLayer – Yahoo Finance


SINGAPORE, Aug. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Binance Labs, the venture capital and incubation arm of Binance, has announced a strategic investment in AltLayer, a leading decentralized Rollups-as–a-Service (RaaS) provider for Web3 applications.
Nicola W., Investment Director at Binance Labs said: "Application-tailored rollups offer the security of Layer 1s and the customizability of appchains. However, a common issue with rollups today is that they mostly operate with centralized sequencers and create fragmented liquidity and userbase. We found AltLayer's approach to facilitating the launch of application-tailored rollups via Beacon Layer an inspired take. Their core network offers several decentralization and interoperability properties much needed in a world of thousands of rollups. All this while dramatically cutting down time-to-market and encouraging rapid innovation and experimentation."
AltLayer is an open and decentralized protocol for developers to launch highly scalable application-tailored rollups. It consists of a core network called the Beacon Layer that serves as a common sequencing, execution, and verification network for all rollups enshrined to it. Built on top of this protocol, AltLayer offers a no-code Rollups-as-a-Service launchpad that allows not only developers but beginners and all users to spin up a customized rollup within 2 minutes with only a few simple clicks.
The AltLayer protocol is designed for a multi-chain and a multi-VM world and comes with default support for EVM/WASM. AltLayer functions as a modular and pluggable scaling solution for all compatible chains.
Speaking on the investment, Dr. Yaoqi Jia, CEO, AltLayer said: "The rollup ecosystem is promising, and needs more eyes on it to flourish and expand. Just over the past year rollups and their impact on dApps have piqued the interest of the global developer community. Our demos with on-chain games, NFT mint events, and SocialFi applications point to the massive value that can be unlocked from this "detachable" blockchain layer. We're honored to have the strategic investment from Binance Labs, and look forward to strengthening the rollup world with their support."
AltLayer has collaborated with industry leaders like EigenLayer, Espresso, Celestia, Double Jump, Arbitrum, Linea, and Jump to build on rollup usability with the integration of key features.

(Reuters) -The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday dealt a setback to Epic Games, maker of the popular video game "Fortnite," in its legal battle against Apple, declining to let a federal judge's injunction take effect that could force the iPhone maker to change payment practices in its lucrative App Store. Liberal Justice Elena Kagan, acting for the Supreme Court, denied Epic's request to lift a decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that effectively delayed implementing an injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers barring certain App Store rules, while Apple pursues a Supreme Court appeal.

The strong year-to-date gains in the stock market are impossible to deny, but August’s losses serve as a reminder that investors need to have a cautionary plan for tougher times.

The gains have largely been powered by the AI boom in tech – and that has led to an unstable situation, with rising stock indexes resting on a narrow base. According to JPMorgan’s Chief Global Market
