Geek’s Guide to the Larvanet’s Economics

Marlin is a layer-0 scaling protocol. This means that blockchains and dapps, irrespective of the consensus algorithm they use, can leverage Marlin to improve performance. As integrations with different blockchains and DeFi protocols continue to be developed, it is important for the decentralized network to provide quantifiable economic security to the protocols that use it.
