Copper now allows tokens to launch on Ethereum mainnet and/or Polygon (other L2s, eg Arbitrum, are in the pipeline). wPOKT should launch on both: this will widen token distribution and broaden Pocket’s support base by accommodating buyers who may be shut out by high gas fees on Ethereum mainnet. For example, the recent dual-chain launch of Popcorn token saw 2-3 times more buyers on Polygon than on Ethereum. While splitting liquidity across more than one chain could hurt a smaller project’s growth, it’s unlikely to adversely affect Pocket as it’s already established. (The above info comes from the Dec 21 AMA with Copper on Bankless DAO.)
Postcript: During the AMA, the host said BanklessDAO would be interested in using its research and analysis resources to curate a list of worthwhile projects launching on Copper in order to benefit its members (over 18K on its Discord); Copper said it would welcome this. Bankless would look for projects that align with its values of decentralization, fairness and openness. Pocket team should reach out to BanklessDAO (and Balancer Intern who’s already active) to get curated. Maybe even angle for a pre-launch spot on the Bankless podcast.
