Extension-chain != L2

What is an extension chain? What makes it different from an L2?

“The main difference between sidechains and Ethereum layer 2 solutions is that while layer 2 inherits the security of the main Ethereum network, sidechains rely on their own security”

Not sure if that is the case with the Sidechain that @aliencoder is working on.

side chain? extension chain? layer 2?

From a marketing perspective, I think we should avoid all of these terms. They all sound like leftovers, crutches, and sloppy seconds.

I think that we should eventually come up with our own term that is specific to NoM’s approach.

See: Metamask Snaps as an example.
