2️⃣ Sandeep Nailwal, co-founder of Polygon Labs, has put forth a proposal suggesting that the ApeCoin DAO governance community establish, deploy, and oversee its zero-knowledge powered Ethereum Layer 2 utilizing Polygon's Chain Development Kit (CDK). This proposal entails the launch of a dedicated ApeCoin Layer 2 network, tentatively named "ApeChain." The estimated annual cost of this initiative, to be covered by the ApeCoin DAO, is around $200,000. Additionally, the proposal outlines the creation of a $3.35 million development fund sourced from the DAO treasury, aimed at fostering the growth of projects related to ApeCoin, with support from Polygon Labs.

3️⃣ The decentralized stablecoin protocol Reserve has expanded its reach beyond the Ethereum mainnet by launching on the Coinbase-incubated Layer 2 network, Base. This development allows users to generate various digital assets known as "RTokens," including decentralized stablecoins, flatcoins (tied to the cost of living), or tokenized indices. These RTokens are created using Reserve's Asset Backed Currency Factory and are supported by overcollateralized collections of Ethereum-compatible ERC-20 tokens.
