Infura supports the Linea mainnet launch, making the newest zkEVM network available to the entire ecosystem.
Since its public testnet launch on March 28th, Linea has experienced tremendous growth in usage, recording over 40 million transactions and 5.4 million unique wallet addresses. Much of this success is due to Linea’s developer-centric approach that, facilitated by Infura's role as an RPC provider, allows access to the network for the greater Ethereum developer ecosystem. Linea also comes with native integrations with popular tools like MetaMask and Truffle to ensure builders can focus on shipping their innovations.
In Infura’s ongoing commitment to empower developers like you, we're excited to announce that Infura supports the launch of Linea on mainnet. This, coupled with the existing support for the Linea testnet, provides the web3 developer community with comprehensive access to the entire Linea ecosystem, a type 2 zkEVM.
The Linea testnet has already enabled efficient and cost-free testing of dapps and smart contracts using test goerli ETH. With this recent addition of Linea mainnet support, developers now have the pathway to mainnet via Infura end-points once developers feel confident in their dapp's performance. This opens up opportunities for practical testing and real-world, user-end engagement for apps built on Ethereum.
Six reasons to be excited about Linea mainnet
Expanding possibilities with a thriving ecosystem: as you build with Linea on Infura, you'll discover a thriving ecosystem that fuels collaboration, creativity, and growth. Benefit from seamless integrations with popular tools, infrastructure partners, indexers, oracles, bridges, and development frameworks like Truffle and MetaMask. Linea is also fully EVM compatible, which means existing smart contracts on Ethereum can be seamlessly deployed on Linea without needing to re-write or audit them.
Unrivaled scalability: Linea's ZK-rollups enable you to process higher throughput than Ethereum mainnet per second, providing exceptional scalability for your dapps without compromising security.
Cost-effectiveness: With Linea's ZK-rollups, you can significantly reduce transaction costs for high-volume dapps such as decentralized exchanges and NFT marketplaces, making them more accessible to users and driving widespread adoption.
