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

The Optimism staff said by way of a Might 15 Twitter thread that the community shall be down for 2-4 hours on June 6 because the improve goes via.

“On improve day, transactions, deposits, and withdrawals shall be unavailable at some stage in the downtime, and the OP Mainnet chain won’t be progressing,” an accompanying weblog submit reads.

Bedrock was introduced again in Might 2022, and it marks the primary main community improve that was voted via 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 decreasing 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 even see shorter deposit occasions, with Optimism going from roughly 10 minutes to substantiate a deposit, to simply 3 minutes with Bedrock, the explainer states.

Whereas node software program efficiency shall 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 are at the moment current with Optimism corresponding to differing code, design patterns and transaction per block fashions. “Bedrock additionally provides help 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 wherein EVM appropriate zero-knowledge rollups (ZkEVMs) have been taking the highlight from optimistic rollup options corresponding to Optimism.

In accordance with information from L2beat, Matter Labs’ not too long ago launched ZkEVM ZKSync Period has overtaken Optimism when it comes to 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.
