The Ethereum Attestation Service (EAS) has successfully managed to go live. This is for the benefit of all connected users, who can now perform attestations both on-chain and off-chain. Builders are aware of the need for a healthy and connectable trust layer in the case of decentralized applications.
EAS is addressing this situation by using various EVMs. They currently live on Arbitrum and, in time, will also be positioned on Mainnet. Following that will be Optimism, along with more chains. It will help to make attestations more cost-effective, convenient and dependable regarding every project associated with the Ethereum ecosystem.
The EAS is a public good in the case of being able to make attestations both on and off-chain. It intends to play the role of a base player in the case of all attestations. This will help build better portability along with interoperability and composability. They are of the firm opinion that the base layer for attestations and faith is not able to be handled by a centralized team or tokenized. This will prevent innovation and build dissolution, moving towards taking away value rather than building on it. It is open-source, permissionless, tokenless, composable, and acts as a free public good.
EAS is a public good; it is free, open, and available to everyone. It has been created by the public and for the benefit of the public. It will help bring about further creativity and innovation. It will also be offering educational resources and documentation for the convenience of users and developers in utilizing its services. This will turn out to be an immense amount of relief for all users and the overall Ethereum community.
Attestations help create faith and clarity in the Ethereum network. It becomes easier to develop decentralized applications that call for faith. EAS allows developers to build schemas and attest to them conveniently. This brings about higher levels of connectivity, portability, and interoperability throughout the EVM ecosystem.
EAS will also help open the doors for exposing the capabilities of the Ethereum ecosystem and, in turn, provide users and builders with the option of building innovative projects. EAS functions through two smart contracts, one for building schemas and the other for making attestations with them.
In the case of attestations, they are pieces of proof about something that anyone on the Ethereum network provides. They are digital records signed by an individual or a company to authenticate facts about others or other entities. They are also used for voting systems and proof of X. It also applies to content verification, reputation systems, supply chain provenance, and prediction markets.
The launch of the EAS will also contain an attestation explorer, a no-code schema builder, a no-code attestation maker, an SDK, the option of making off-chain attestations, developer documentation, and educational resources for better comprehending EAS. The EAS attestation explorer provides the opportunity to make it more convenient for browsing and authenticating all attestations that have been made using EAS.
