>>56496473The fragmentation is already insane and it's only going to get worse – see picrel. In a year's time there will be as many Ethereum L2s as there are ERC20s. Try explaining to a normie which of the dozens of L2s to use, which of the dozens of bridges, how to reduce bridging gas fees, etc. and watch their eyes glaze over.
Ethereum is the future. Now that we have 30 plus L2s and counting to choose from and more than 50 bridges to allow easy transfer of funds from one L2 to the other, there's never been a better time to introduce your normie friends and family members to the simplicity and ease of use of the Ethereum ecosystem. Just make sure to explain to them the basis such as keeping enough gas set aside for L1 bridging fees, to only use L2s with an escape hatch and to make sure that the bridge they choose is a trusted bridge that won't rug them.
>>56079461>muh gas feesThere's 30+ Layer 2s you could be using and 50+ bridges to choose from so really you have no excuse (just make sure to pick an L2 with an escape hatch and a trusted bridge so you don't risk losing all your funds). You can even avoid the gas fees for bridging by sending your funds to a CEX that supports Arbitrum, Optimism or Base withdrawals. Of course, you can even skip that step if the CEX already has the tokens you want to trade. That's the beauty of decentralized finance on Ethereum.
>>56076089For small swaps you're better off transferring ETH to one of the 30+ Ethereum Layer 2s via one of the 50+ bridges. Make sure it's a Layer 2 with an escape hatch and a trusted bridge though otherwise you risk losing all your funds and remember to budget for the Layer 1 gas fees for bridging to the Layer 2 and back again.
Why would anyone use Solana or any other "ETH killer" when there are already more than 30 Ethereum Layer 2s to choose from and you can bridge from one to the other for less than fifty bucks?
