About Rome Protocol

Rome Protocol is building a shared sequencer network leveraging Solana. Shared sequencers solve the biggest problems for Ethereum’s rollup-centric future. Using Solana as a shared sequencer leverages a well-tested, secure, and high throughput network to solve these problems.

We are building a shared sequencer that can be integrated with any Ethereum based rollups. It is intended to be used for thousands of rollups.

We work in person from our New York City office and are remote friendly.
