Welcome to the documentation for Specular!

Specular is an L2 system with the primary objective of scaling Ethereum securely, with minimal additional trust assumptions.
Specifically, it is an EVM-native optimistic rollup, relying on existing Ethereum infrastructure both to bootstrap protocol security and to enable native compatibility for all existing Ethereum applications & tooling.
This work is a product of academic research conducted at RDI (UC Berkeley), and is supported by contributions from Factor and grants from the Ethereum Foundation.

Can I start using Specular today?

Yes, our Specular testnet is live on Ethereum Sepolia and you can currently try it out!
From connecting your wallet to swapping some Test tokens on the network, we encourage you to test out Specular's performance. Here are some of the things you can do:
  • Connect your favorite wallet and bridge Sepolia ETH over to Specular
  • Swap your Specular ETH for one of our test tokens on the DEX
  • Deploy your first dAPP contract on the network using different technologies
