Scaling Optimistic Rollups

Quick Take

  • Optimistic rollups are attempting to push the edge of scalability by incorporating various techniques, from data compression to data availability abstraction
  • Recently, the Optimism Collective announced their developmental efforts on the OP Stack, a horizontal scaling solution that will enhance customizability
  • Previously, Arbitrum had also launched AnyTrust, an off-chain data availability solution that would reduce costs and improve the scalability of applications using AnyTrust chains
  • These efforts come amidst the incremental improvements in data compression methods, which reduces the size of calldata that optimistic rollups post to Ethereum
