Universal Page is expanding to Base! The once LUKSO specific marketplace is bringing its platform to the fastest-growing L2 on Ethereum for On-Chain Summer. In this article they detailed their reasoning for the decision how it could impact the platform and LUKSO moving forward. With this move we will likely see some LUKSO projects begin expanding to the new L2 as well.

In wake of this news, here are some based comments Jake Prins, Universal Page Co-Founder, made in response to questioning:

In other news: the Universal Profile team is designing new features for their Smart Wallet.

The Universal Profile (UP) team has been busy iterating on some new design features. They have added a new carousel layout, designed to spotlight assets you hold. Now, everyone visiting your UP can easily see what creations/assets you have. If there is one thing the new Base Smart Wallet did well, its UI. LUKSO being able to compete with them here will be massive as we look for adoption.

Base isn’t the only chain breaking adoption barriers through Account Abstraction.

The smart wallets from Base have received high praise for two areas, abstracting away seed phrases and gas fees. We know Universal Profiles accomplish both of these as well, and they are only getting more robust. Now you can use your Facebook login to create a new Universal Profile! With Facebook being the worlds most widely used social platform, this will ease the user experience for millions of potential users.
