Tezos X has announced the development of Jstz, a Layer 2 rollup enabling developers to use JavaScript on the blockchain.

This initiative aims to lower the barrier to entry for blockchain development, making it more accessible to the approximately 23 million JavaScript developers globally.

Jstz is designed to comply with standard JavaScript APIs, allowing developers to leverage existing JS tools and libraries.

This move is expected to enhance the utility of blockchain technology and attract a broader developer base.

The development aligns with Tezos X's vision of creating an OP blockchain-based, cloud-like backend for diverse applications.
