Blast Protocol, the much-anticipated Ethereum Layer 2 network, has officially launched its mainnet, marking a significant milestone in the realm of decentralized finance (DeFi) and blockchain scalability. With this launch, users can now withdraw their funds, unlocking over USD 2.3 billion in total value locked (TVL) on the protocol.

Blast Protocol Mainnet Launch

The brainchild of Tieshun Roquerre, the visionary founder behind the renowned NFT marketplace Blur, Blast Protocol introduces a groundbreaking approach to yield farming and native token rewards within the Ethereum ecosystem. Built on the principles of efficiency and liquidity optimization, Blast aims to redefine the dynamics of decentralized finance by offering a native yield model for both Ether and stablecoins. With enticing interest rates of 4% for Ether and 5% for stablecoins, Blast Protocol presents an enticing proposition for investors seeking lucrative yield opportunities in the burgeoning De-Fi landscape.

The journey towards the mainnet launch began with early access granted to users in late November 2023. During this period, users could start earning yields through innovative mechanisms such as bridging and Blast Points, which served as rewards for bridging assets and referring users to the platform. Despite initial skepticism and comparisons to Ponzi schemes, Roquerre vehemently denied such allegations, emphasizing that the yield generated stems from reputable sources such as the liquid staking protocol Lido and DeFi powerhouse MakerDAO.

Blast Protocol's ascent to prominence was further fueled by a successful fundraising round, which saw the protocol raise a staggering $20 million in November 2023. Led by prominent crypto focused venture firms Paradigm and Standard Crypto, this capital injection bolstered Blast's development efforts and solidified its position as a leading player in the Ethereum scaling landscape.
