Caldera Spark Retrospective: 5000 rollups launched

Caldera Spark Retrospective: 5000 rollups launched

Hey there, folks!

In February, we announced the launch of Caldera Spark, a proof-of-concept dashboard that enabled developers to permissionlessly launch their own rollups with a single click.

Given that we just launched our public testnet rollups, we decided now is a good time to retire Caldera Spark. Spark was always meant to be a proof-of-concept, showcasing our ability to run hundreds of dedicated layer-two blockchains without breaking a sweat. Now that we’ve done that, it’s time for us to re-focus our effort on our production-level infrastructure.

As we say goodbye to our beloved Caldera Spark we just want to give a huge shout-out to everyone who jumped in and tried it out. Let's take a quick trip down memory lane and share our excitement for what's coming next.

What a Ride!

Seriously, you all blew our minds with your response to Caldera Spark. Seeing so many devs exploring layer-two blockchain tech was a massive sign that we're onto something big, and it's all thanks to you.

Let's Talk Numbers: Caldera Spark was an amazing experiment, and the results were beyond our wildest dreams. Here are some stats:

  • 8,500 of you awesome people signed up
  • Over 5,000 rollups launched (mind-blowing, right?)
  • Multiple times, we had over 200 rollups running concurrently!

These figures just go to show the insane potential of Caldera’s infrasturcture and how stoked everyone is about layer-two solutions.

Time to Say Goodbye to Caldera Spark

As we get ready to roll out our shiny new production dashboard, it's time to bid farewell to Caldera Spark. Spark was a fun experiment, and it did its job by showing off our abilities with deploying and running rollups and giving us priceless feedback from developers around the world.

What's Next

Caldera Spark might be over, but our adventure is just getting started. We're working non-stop to bring the Caldera platform to production.

In the meantime, if you're itching to test out Caldera, feel free to dive into our public testnets. Or, if you’re a developer working on a project, contact us to spin up a production-ready, bespoke rollup. Since last year, we’ve been running rollups in production, on Ethereum and Polygon mainnet, for select customers.

Once again, a massive thank you to everyone who tried out Caldera Spark. Your energy and support have played a huge role in shaping the future of Caldera, and we can't wait to show you what we've got cooking. Stay tuned!
