Moreover, the Blur team also launched its own layer-2 network called Blast in a bid to reduce transaction costs for digital collectibles and earn yield with Ethereum staking.

Yet, the crypto community already noticed several issues related to Blast. According to Polygon engineer Jarrod Watts, five signer wallets of Blast’s multi-signature contract are all new unknown entities, which makes it risky for users “to send Blast funds in its current state.”
