2️⃣ Worldcoin, a cryptocurrency and digital identification initiative, has achieved a significant milestone with over two million users registering for its "global identity protocol," known as World ID. As of July 13, the World ID project, currently in beta testing, has surpassed the two million user mark in an impressive timeframe, achieving this milestone in less than half the time it took to reach the first million users. This rapid adoption and interest in World ID underscore the growing importance and demand for secure and decentralized digital identity solutions in the cryptocurrency space.

3️⃣ cLabs, the primary developer responsible for the Celo blockchain, has put forth a proposal to shift its network architecture from Layer 1 to Layer 2, constructed on the Ethereum platform. This strategic move aims to utilize the OP Stack provided by Optimism to facilitate the migration process and fulfill the specific needs of the Celo blockchain. By transitioning to a Layer 2 solution on Ethereum, cLabs intends to enhance the scalability, efficiency, and overall performance of its blockchain network.

2️⃣ ConsenSys has launched its layer-2 network, Linea, on the main Ethereum network. This marks a significant step towards enhancing Ethereum's scalability and accessibility. With Linea and other zkEVM projects, Ethereum aims to overcome its high fees and accommodate a wider range of users and use cases. Rollup networks like Linea offer lower transaction costs and improved scalability, making Ethereum more practical for mass adoption. As layer-2 solutions gain traction, Ethereum's potential as a widely adopted blockchain platform becomes more feasible, fostering greater participation in the decentralized economy.

3️⃣ In a blog post on July 13, Coinbase's Base mainnet development team announced that the network is now open for builders. This move is aimed at facilitating user onboarding and giving developers more time to explore and build on the network before its public launch. The team has scheduled the public launch of Base for August, signaling its commitment to further advancing and expanding the network's capabilities. This strategic approach allows for a smoother transition and ensures a robust ecosystem as Base prepares to welcome users and builders to its platform.
