Omni x Manta: Pioneering the Future of Layer-2

Omni collaborates with Manta Network, fusing Omni's groundbreaking cross-rollup tech with Manta's expertise in ZK functionalities. This alliance heralds a new era for Layer-2, promising a DeFi ecosystem that's not only efficient but private & secure. Dive into the future of L2!

Omni x Manta Pioneering the Future of Layer 2


In the rapidly evolving world of Layer-2 solutions, Omni remains steadfast in its commitment to redefine and enhance the landscape. As we progress on this path, our latest collaboration with the Manta Network is set to unlock unprecedented opportunities, bridging the best of both worlds.

Omni Network & The Promise of ZK Proofs

Omni's unyielding pursuit of innovation has culminated in creating a state-of-the-art cross-rollup infrastructure. At the core of our vision is an unwavering determination to prevent liquidity fragmentation, ensuring that DeFi resources flow seamlessly across the ecosystem, maximizing efficiency and user satisfaction.

But what's a sophisticated L2 infrastructure without iron-clad security and utmost privacy? Enter the Manta Network, a game-changer in the realm of Zero-Knowledge (ZK) functionalities. ZK proofs, for the uninitiated, are cryptographic methods that ensure transactional privacy without compromising security. By integrating these proofs, the potential for fostering a secure and private Layer-2 ecosystem becomes boundless.

The Omni-Manta Synergy

With Manta's prowess in ZK functionalities and Omni's robust cross-rollup framework, the horizon looks promising. The objective? For Manta to flourish as the ZK hub for all L2s, enhancing every transaction with a layer of privacy and security. The combined capabilities of both networks promise a future where DeFi is not just efficient but also private and secure.

Technical Background

Let's delve a bit into the mechanics. Imagine a transaction originating from a rollup like Optimism. This transaction is relayed to Manta Pacific's EVM. Following this, the execution then occurs in the encrypted layer with access to exclusive ZK functionality. The response is then seamlessly relayed back to the originating rollup. The integration offers a myriad of use cases, enriching user experiences and unlocking opportunities across all Layer-2 solutions.

What’s in it for you right now?

To kick off this collaboration, Manta Network will provide Omnitrons with the ability to mint a Zero-Knowledge Decentralized Identifier (zkDID) in the form of the zkOmni, a private soul-bound token (zkSBT) that allows users to privately verify their on-chain activities related to Omni without compromising any information or data leakage about their on-chain activity.

By minting Omni’s zkOmni zkSBT, users gain the ability to utilize it within projects within the Manta ecosystem, all while maintaining privacy without disclosing their address.

Qualifying & Minting your Omni zkSBT

To mint zkOmni zkSBT, community members must have minted an Omni Overdrive - DripVerse & Polkastarter OATs on Galxe. Once you mint these OATs, head over to the Manta Network NPO page.


Omni remains relentless in its mission to pioneer advancements in the Layer-2 space. And while our collaboration with Manta marks a significant milestone, it's just a glimpse of what's on the horizon. To our community: your trust fuels our innovation. Stay tuned, for the journey ahead is filled with breakthroughs that promise to reshape the very fabric of DeFi. Together, let’s tread into a future where possibilities are limitless.

Join us and be a part of this revolutionary journey. The next chapter of Layer 2 awaits, and you won't want to miss what we unveil next!
