How to Onboard Arbitrum's Dev Protocol

onboard Arbitrum

Dev Protocol has released Dev Protocol on Layer2’s Arbitrum to avoid the recent surge in gas prices on the Ethereum network. By using Layer2, the gas cost for all transactions can be reduced, making staking and onboarding easier than ever.
You can continue to use the Dev Protocol on the mainnet, but if you want to onboard the Dev Protocol of Arbitrum, you will need to register onboard again.

What is Layer2

Layer2 is a technology that allows you to implement a virtual machine “EVM” that executes contracts such as DeFi and NFT on a blockchain (Layer2) different from the mainnet. Arbitrum is a promising candidate for this technology, and Dev Protocol has released a service to Arbitrum One that has already been deployed.

Why release on Layer 2?

Ethereum Mainnet has maintained high transaction fees due to recent increases in demand. Arbitrum can keep this fee low while using the same system as Ethereum.

Onboard method

First, it is necessary to set the network to which MetaMask connects to “Arbitrum One”. To change the connection network, just select from the networks if you have already added “Arbitrum One” to MetaMask, but if you have not added it yet, add the network by referring to the following.

MetaMask

Add Arbitrum One to your Metamask network
To connect to Arbitrum with MetaMask, you need to add “Arbitrum One” to your network. You can select “Custom RPC” from the network and enter the network information, but you can easily add it by using Chainlist.
https://chainlist.org/

Search for “Arbitrum One” in the Chainlist search and click “Add To Metamask”.

If you want to enter the network information and register, please refer to the following.

Move ETH from Mainnet to Arbitrum One
In order to onboard the Dev Protocol on Arbitrum, it is necessary to move some ETH to Arbitrum to cover gas. Use the Arbitrum Bridge for that
https://bridge.arbitrum.io

Please refer to the tutorial below for how to use it.

Onboard
After accessing Stakes.social, switch from Metamask to the “Arbitrum One” network, and then go onboard.
For projects that are already onboard on the mainnet, you do not need to apply again, so please use the link below to tokenize.

Note) Please switch the connection network to “Arbitrum One” before proceeding.

  2. Connect with your wallet
  3. First, Wrap the DEV you want to transfer and convert it to WDEV.
  4. Go to the L2 Bridge tab
