The Boba Network is an optimistic rollup layer 2 being built in top of Ethereum by Enya and the OMG Foundation.
Enya is building Boba Network as a core contributor to the OMG Foundation. Boba is a next-generation Ethereum Layer 2 Optimistic Rollup scaling solution that reduces gas fees, improves transaction throughput, and extends the capabilities of smart contracts.
It is a fork of Optimism PBC's optimistic rollup, with extra features added, such as fast exits, NFT minting and bridging, and Hybrid Compute.
The BOBA token will be used for governance via a DAO. It will also be used to distribute a portion of Boba Network's transaction fees to those staking BOBA on the network.
BOBA will be airdropped to qualifying OMG holders based on a snapshot on November 12.
Contract addresses are available on the Boba Docs site.
Development is done on the omgnetwork/optimism GitHub repository.
