L2BEAT is an independent, public goods company who acts as an impartial watchdog for the Ethereum Layer2 ecosystem. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and unbiased analysis and comparative evaluations of Layer 2 solutions . We are committed to the verification and fact-checking of the claims made by each project, with a special focus on the security aspects. What sets L2BEAT apart is our unwavering commitment to delivering accurate and reliable information.
In addition, L2Beat has a governance team which actively participates in constructive discussions of specific protocol challenges and issues, fostering the discourse toward increasingly permissionless, open source, and trustless systems. Our participation in various DAOs and public debates reflects this commitment.
The governance team currently consists of kaereste (Krzysztof Urbanski) and Sinkas (Anastassis Oikonomopoulos). Both members have extensive knowledge and experience in the broader web3 ecosystem, on both technical and non-technical fronts. Any governance actions of the L2Beat delegation team will be the product of research, fact-checking and ideation of the 2 aforementioned members.
For us, governance isn't just about casting a vote. The real magic happens during healthy debates and coming to conclusions together. Voting should just be the cherry on top of a great community-driven process.
When participating in governance, we hold the following principles in mind:
At L2BEAT we believe that crypto is the new infrastructure for the future financial system. As such, we believe that in order for it to be successful, it needs to be:
We recognize that proper governance is of paramount importance for any protocol that wants to be efficient while remaining decentralized. The precedents we establish today will significantly influence the organizational structures and systems of the future. Consequently, we view our engagement in governance as a professional responsibility, and our team is dedicated to addressing all governance and policy issues that arise within the protocols we’re engaged with.
We assert that governance involves much more than the act of voting; it revolves primarily around fostering constructive dialogue and facilitating the healthy exchange of opinions and viewpoints in order to reach consensus on specific issues.
Public Goods are essential for any thriving community (virtual or not). A systemic solution to the public goods funding problem will make Optimism the best rollup to use.
We consider ourselves experts on blockchain scaling solutions. We have a deep technical understanding of underlying protocols and a broad overview of available solutions. We’ve spent hours understanding the code, documentation and on-chain data of every project listed on our website.
In terms of DAO-relevant work, we served on several grant committees and helped organise the work of the DAOs we're involved with.

It’s not necessary COI but it’s worth mentioning that we are active delegates in other ecosystems, with more coming in the near future. We also have a working relationship with almost every major Ethereum L2 project and with most bridge projects.
