Differences between L1 (Ethereum) and L2 (Polygon)

Modified on: Wed, 10 Nov, 2021 at 9:53 PM

Once domain minting and management becomes possible on Layer 2 (Polygon), these will be the key differences to note between keeping your domain on Layer 1 and Layer 2:


  • We will cover the fees for minting and managing domains on Layer 2

  • At the moment, only domain TLDs built on the Ethereum blockchain can be minted

  • Minting and managing on Layer 1 will continue to incur gas fees

  • Moving domains from Layer 1 to Layer 2 (and vice versa) will incur gas fees

  • Wallets will likely need to be manually configured for Layer 2

  • There are a smaller number of compatible wallets for minting to Layer 2
