Manta Network is a diverse ecosystem for zero-knowledge (ZK) applications, comprising two key components:
- Manta Pacific: An Ethereum Layer 2 ecosystem for scalable, low-cost ZK applications using Solidity.
- Manta Atlantic: A fast ZK Layer 1 blockchain on Polkadot, enabling programmable identities and credentials in web3 through zkSBTs.
This network, founded by alumni from Harvard, MIT, and Algorand, and backed by investors like Binance Labs and Polychain Capital, is advancing web3 application development and adoption with its innovative approach to zero-knowledge cryptography.
Manta Network plans to distribute 30 million MANTA tokens through an airdrop to its diverse early user base. Eligible participants include active users of Manta, early supporters, users of zkApps, and others engaged with Manta Pacific and Manta Atlantic.
