Nervos Network (CKB) price posts double-digit gain after Godwoken layer 2 launch

Positive price movement during bear markets are notoriously hard to come by due to the non-stop FUD of media and lackadaisical interest from crypto investors.

One crypto that managed to flash green on June 12 is the Nervos Network (CKB), an open blockchain protocol designed for universally accessible decentralized applications (DApps).

Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView shows that CKB put on a 50% gain in July after climbing from a low of $0.0033 on June 30 to a daily high of $0.005 on July 12.

Three reasons for the positive gains for the Nervos Network include the launch of the network's layer-2 (L2) solution Godwoken, the integration of the Celer c-Bridge within the Godwoken protocol and the launch of a new nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace on the Nervos mainnet.

Nervos launches a layer-2 solution

The recent price rally for CKB was ignited on June 29 when the protocol announced that its L2 solution “Godwoken” had officially launched on the Nervos Network mainnet.

According to the announcement, Godwoken is an Ethereum (ETH) Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible Optimistic rollup that allows projects building across the various sectors of the market to easily create and port their DApps to the Nervos Network.

The addition of EVM compatibility also makes it possible for any project launched on Godwoken to be instantly interoperable with other EVM chains, which can help increase their reach and grow their user-base.

Celer cBridge integrates with Godwoken

Prior to the spike in CKB price, the developers announced that Godwoken had been integrated with the Celer cBridge to enable the bridging of certain assets between Nervos and the Ethereum network.

According to the announcement from Celer, the first assets available to bridge between Godwoken and Ethereum are Tether (USDT), USD Coin (USDC), Ether, Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), and Dai (DAI).

Godwoken's main selling point is that its use “enables developers to employ Ethereum contracts while keeping transactions scalable, fast and low-cost.”

Nervos launches a new NFT marketplace

Another development that has brought added attention to the Nervos Network was the launch of the Oblivion nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace on the protocol’s mainnet.

Despite a collapse in the prices of NFTs, nonfungible tokens remain a popular buzzword and there is still a lot interest in increasing the adoption of blockchain and NFT technology by traditional business and finance.

In addition to the launch of its first NFT marketplace, Nervos and its L2 solution Godwoken have also welcomed several new decentralized finance platforms including YokaiSwap, which deployed on Godwoken v1, and a cross-chain protocol called JioSwap.
