Lens Protocol, the decentralized social media platform from the team behind Aave, has migrated to its V2 mainnet and the process began on October 30. The purpose of this process is to provide a more composable and developer-friendly ecosystem. Whereas Lens Protocol users do not need to take any action to access the V2 mainnet, rather they will be able to automatically access the Lens V2 mainnet. The Lens team says that simply migrating to Lens API V2 means you will get 2x the speed and a more scalable system on it.
The migration process to migrate to Lens' V2 mainnet has started from October 30, after which Lens will stop accepting the process of writing V1 API. Lens' V1 API will from now on only return old data and will be useful for reading, but it will remain active for 3 months i.e. 30 January 2024. This change in the Lens Protocol highlights the need for on-chain data migration of approximately 20 million transactions. Also, priority will be given to active and real users. The team says that to ensure security, some activities will be stopped during data migration, so that full attention can be paid to security.
Lens Protocol aims to build a social media infrastructure operated by Blockchain Technology, bringing social media into the Web3 era. This is why Lens Protocol has now reached its V2 phase and is supercharging social media. So that any internet platform can be easily connected to Web3.The Lens team has also started working on it.
