Builder Protocol is OP (and Based af)

Builder Buzz #3

No, not overpowered, you nerds. We're talking about Nouns Builder on Layer 2s! Builder engineers Zaak and Neokry have launched the testnet versions of the Nouns Builder protocol on Base and Optimism! Really exciting times ahead for the Builder Protocol as we expand the accessibility of the protocol to these cheaper and faster networks. Before the protocol can fully launch on mainnet, we need as many people as possible to test the various functions on the testnet. Head over to to give it a go, and be sure to leave your feedback here.
