Over the past several weeks, MantaFest has provided an engaging experience for Manta Pacific users all around the world. Participating in MantaFest allowed users to try out many of the new dapps onboarded and launched within the ecosystem. Users engaged in dapps across several categories of bridging, DeFi, SocialFi, and entertainment.

Today, MantaFest has officially concluded. As part of the campaign, users were able to collect points and certain limited-edition NFTs commemorating some of the large partnerships we unveiled including Polygon for zkEVM, LayerZero for asset bridging, Space ID for on-chain domain services, and QuickSwap for decentralized swapping.

The Growth of Manta Pacific

In just a little over two months since launch, Manta Pacific has grown to one of the largest OP Stack L2s, just under Base and Optimism. The total value locked in the ecosystem at the moment sits above $27 million with over 100 ecosystem projects onboarded. Manta Pacific will continue to achieve further growth, with more and more projects onboarded on a weekly basis.

The growth and excitement around Manta Pacific continues to build as community members all around the world get involved in trying out the onboarded dapps. Moving forward, we have some other exciting activities as well that are being cooked up alongside some newly introduced projects. Stay tuned for some additional activities!

On the infrastructure side, we are planning to integrate Celestia at the end of this year to modularize our data availability, which drives lower gas costs for each transaction happening on the network. Upon the completion of that transition, Manta Pacific will officially transition into Stage 2 of its mainnet.

More Exciting Ways to Get Involved

While MantaFest has concluded, many new dapps and partnerships continue to emerge in the Manta Pacific ecosystem. Additional activities and engagements are just around the corner, and you can stay tuned on the Twitter account to stay updated on the latest news!
