Our focus is on building a preconfirmation platform to unlock near-instant confirmations for users on Ethereum L1, based rollups, and beyond. We are putting together a highly-motivated team of builders and researchers to develop, test, and innovate with. As a Nethermind product team, we will have access to Nethermind’s wealth of expertize, both as an industry leader in product development. More about Switchboard
