Optimism’s main mainnet improve to Bedrock set for June 6

Layer 2 scaling answer Optimism is about to bear its extremely anticipated Bedrock improve on June 6. The transfer is predicted to lead to considerably lowered transaction charges, present larger community safety and enhanced compatibility with Ethereum.

The Optimism workforce acknowledged by way of a Might 15 Twitter thread that the community might be down for 2-4 hours on June 6 because the improve goes by.

“On improve day, transactions, deposits, and withdrawals might be unavailable during the downtime, and the OP Mainnet chain is not going to be progressing,” an accompanying weblog publish reads.

Bedrock was introduced again in Might 2022, and it marks the primary main community improve that was voted by by the Optimism governance council’s Token Home.

Optimism is slated to profit from decrease transaction charges, which OP Labs, the community’s protocol growth unit, estimates will drop by 47%.

“Bedrock improves on its predecessor by lowering transaction charges utilizing optimized batch compression and Ethereum as an information availability layer; shortening delays of together with L1 transactions in rollups by dealing with L1 re-orgs extra gracefully,” the Optimism group’s Bedrock explainer reads.

Including to that, the community may also see shorter deposit occasions, with Optimism going from roughly 10 minutes to verify a deposit, to only 3 minutes with Bedrock, the explainer states.

Whereas node software program efficiency might be “considerably improved by enabling execution of a number of transactions in a single rollup ‘block’ versus the prior ‘one transaction per block’ mannequin within the earlier model.”

One other key enchancment considerations the community’s compatibility with the Ethereum Digital Machine (EVM), the core piece of software program that executes Ethereum sensible contracts.

With Bedrock, the community will take away “a number of deviations” from Ethereum and the EVM which might be presently current with Optimism resembling differing code, design patterns and transaction per block fashions. “Bedrock additionally provides assist for EIP-1559, chain re-orgs, and different Ethereum options current on L1,” the explainer reads.

ZK Sync period overakes Optimism?

The upcoming transfer to Bedrock comes at a time through which EVM suitable zero-knowledge rollups (ZkEVMs) have been taking the highlight from optimistic rollup options resembling Optimism.

In keeping with knowledge from L2beat, Matter Labs’ lately launched ZkEVM ZKSync Period has overtaken Optimism by way of community exercise.

Over the previous 30 days, ZKSync Period has seen 7.85 million transactions, in comparison with Optimism’s 7.66 million. Whereas over the previous 24 hours, ZKSync Period has additionally outpaced Optimism in common transactions per second (TPS), at 6.80 TPS in comparison with 2.98 TPS.
