Immutable X Launches Gas-Free Layer-2 Solution Paving the Way to Mainstream NFT Adoption – GlobeNewswire

Sydney, April 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Immutable X alpha launched on mainnet today, the first layer-two solution for NFTs on Ethereum, created by Immutable — the team behind one of Ethereum’s highest-grossing trading card games, Gods Unchained. To coincide with the launch, Immutable has released the Immutable X roadmap to grow digital economies.

Historically for developers and creators, NFT projects faced a lot of friction to unlock the network effects of a scaled marketplace and the economic potential of secondary NFT markets. Particularly, high gas fees and poor user experiences limited mainstream adoption. Central to accessibility is removing the barrier of surging gas fees for the user.

Through Immutable X, its layer-two scaling solution, Immutable aims to promote mainstream NFT adoption by offering gas-free minting and trading, self custody alongside seamless UX for developers and consumers. Immutable X is also ensuring any NFT activity on the protocol is completely carbon neutral by purchasing carbon credits to offset gas consumed on Ethereum.

 “With today’s Immutable X Alpha release, any NFT can now be traded, earned, shared, gamed and collected completely gas-free on Ethereum,” said Robbie Ferguson, Immutable Co-Founder.

Notable NFT projects working with Immutable X include: OpenSea (NFT marketplace), Mintable (NFT marketplace), RTFKT studios (fashion NFT artists) HighRise (social sandbox), TokenTrove (collectibles marketplace ) SuperfarmDAO (DeFi NFT farm),  Epics.GG (collectibles), Illuvium (auto battler RPG), Lucid Sight (MLB Champions Baseball, Crypto Space Commander), War Riders (post-apocalyptic
