summary:

According to data from the L2 Beat website , the total TVL of the L2 network is currently 45.59 billion US dollars. Although it is within a certain range of fluctuations, the increase in 7 days has reached 17.98%, which still shows that the market is highly concerned about and enthusiastic about the L2 network. Now that the Ethereum spot ETF has been approved, perhaps the next wave of market hotspots and capital flows will be the many L2 networks including the above popular ecosystems.

Whether different types of L2 networks can find their own ecological niche and whether they can seize the opportunity brought by the Ethereum spot ETF, perhaps the performance of zkSync and Blast, which are about to issue tokens in June, can give us a glimpse.
