LianGuai Observation | Counting the Latest Potential Projects in the Modular L2 Mantle Ecosystem

LianGuai Observation | Latest Potential Projects in Modular L2 Mantle Ecosystem

Author: Climber

Since the modular Layer2 network Mantle Network announced the launch of the mainnet Alpha version on July 17th, its TVL has exceeded $87 million in just one month, ranking ninth on the L2 TVL leaderboard.

Mantle is an EVM-compatible OP chain based on the Optimism OVM architecture, designed for the Ethereum network. It has a modular architecture and attempts to use EigenDA as the data availability layer and the Specular Network fraud proof system for data processing.

Although Mantle is also a Layer2 scaling solution for Rollup, it has been upgraded on the basis of the original Layer2 solutions and has introduced modular design into Layer2 technology for the first time. Therefore, from a technical perspective, Mantle is also among the L2 competition.

Recently, another star L2 network Base has been gaining popularity, and the on-chain project has been constantly appearing. In comparison, Mantle seems to be very low-key, but there are still many popular projects worth exploring on the chain.

Currently, a total of 113 project applications have been deployed on Mantle, with a few still in the testnet stage. In terms of segmenting the track, project owners and developers mainly focus on three categories: 38 DeFi projects, 27 infrastructure projects, and 25 GameFi projects. LianGuai has selected representative high-popularity potential projects from each category for users to experience and refer to.


iZUMi Finance


iZUMi Finance is a multi-chain DeFi protocol that provides one-stop liquidity as a service (LaaS), mainly helping project tokens obtain better on-chain liquidity in an efficient and sustainable manner. Currently, iZUMi has launched three on-chain liquidity products: LiquidBox, iZiSwap, and iUSD.

LiquidBox helps liquidity providers obtain additional liquidity mining rewards and DEX trading fees provided by relevant protocols. iZiSwap is an innovative discretized liquidity AMM that provides efficient on-chain liquidity for Web3 assets and offers DEX users a similar order book trading experience as CEX. Based on the DLAMM mechanism, it can provide 5000 times higher capital efficiency than traditional x*y=k DEX.

iUSD, short for iZUMi Bond USD, is 100% supported by iZUMi’s collateral and revenue. iUSD is pegged to the dollar at a 1:1 ratio and is issued by iZUMi Finance as a bond sold to private investors.



FusionX is a native DEX on the Mantle Network that integrates various DeFi product functionalities, mainly providing AMM and a range of innovative financial services. The FusionX ecosystem consists of automated liquidity management, yield aggregator, leveraged yield farms, and perpetual Dex aggregator.

It combines zero-clearing currency markets and options markets. Users can lend tokens to the pool to earn fixed income.

Jump DeFi

Official website:

Jump DeFi is the only all-in-one decentralized finance platform on the Mantle Network. Jump products include Jump DEX AMM, Jump LianGuaid (IDO), one-click token issuance, and NFT staking and trading. By lowering the entry barriers and simplifying the operation process, it empowers users and developers in DeFi.


Official website:

KTX.Finance is an on-chain decentralized derivatives trading market where traders can trade based on project native liquidity pools or KLP pools.


Official website:

The KUMA protocol tokenizes real-world assets (RWA) in various forms and uses them as the basis for interest-bearing stablecoins for DeFi retail. The protocol accepts bond-backed regulated NFTs (KUMA NFTs) for exchange of composable interest-bearing tokens (KIBT) based on NFT metadata. A fixed amount of KIBT is minted at a parameterized interest rate. The KIBT rate can be updated by allowing users to exchange NFTs of the same risk category or when central bank rates decrease.

KIBT is an interest-bearing ERC-20 token (payment token). They can be used in a wider blockchain ecosystem such as DeFi, GameFi, or NFT platforms.



Official website:

EigenLayer is a protocol built on top of Ethereum that introduces re-staking, a new primitive in cryptographic economic security. This primitive allows for re-staking $ETH at the consensus layer.

Users who stake $ETH can choose to join the EigenLayer smart contract to re-stake their $ETH and extend cryptographic economic security to other applications on the network.

NFTs2Me is a user-friendly platform for creating, deploying and managing users’ NFT collections, with zero fees.


Compared with several other leading L2 networks, although Mantle does not appear weak in terms of the number of ecological projects, its development time is relatively short, and its financing and team background are not superior.

In particular, Mantle is still in the mainnet Alpha stage and there are still hard problems to be solved. Currently, Mantle is developing anti-fraud features, and it is unknown when it will be completed in the future. In addition, the data availability through Mantle DA (supported by Eigen DA technology) is currently a permissioned node network, where all nodes are selected and approved by the core team, so there will be a node network migration once the EigenDA mainnet is released.

However, as the first modular L2 that utilizes EigenDA and has been in testing for over six months, with over 80 projects built and over 14 million on-chain transactions. And since the launch of the mainnet Alpha, more and more projects have joined, enriching its ecosystem. Therefore, Mantle has the potential to be a dark horse.
