As Ethereum users continued to cry about high transaction fees eating up their DeFi profits. Vitalik Buterin simply stated that the answer was already here. Use Looping! Essentially, the implication is that Layer 2 solutions with over 2500 TPS already exist for trading, we just have to embrace them.
What is Loopring?
Loopring is a decentralized exchange for trading tokens and making payments that use ZK-Rollups. Technology that can drastically lower transaction costs for end-users. As a result, the protocol can support 7000 trades per Ethereum block. To keep it simple, using zero-knowledge proofs takes all of the computation off the blockchain. It reduces the amount of data needed in a transaction.
Loopring also has a native token LRC, which holders can stake. This allows you to reduce fees, earn rewards, and help secure the protocol.
