Layer 2 scaling answer Optimism is set to bear its extremely anticipated Bedrock upgrade on June 6. The transfer is predicted to end in considerably lowered transaction charges, present better community safety and enhanced compatibility with Ethereum.

The Optimism group said through a Could 15 Twitter thread that the community could be down for two to 4 hours on June 6 because the upgrade goes via.

“On upgrade day, transactions, deposits, and withdrawals will probably be unavailable for the period of the downtime, and the OP Mainnet chain won’t be progressing,” an accompanying weblog publish reads.

Bedrock was introduced again in Could 2022, and it marks the primary major community upgrade that was voted via by the Optimism governance council’s Token Home.

Optimism is slated to learn from decrease transaction charges, which OP Labs — the community’s protocol growth unit — estimates wildrop 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 will even see shorter deposit instances, with Optimism going from roughly 10 minutes to verify a deposit to only three minutes, the explainer states.

Whereas node software program efficiency will probably 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 good contracts.

With Bedrock, the community will take away “a number of deviations” from Ethereum and the EVM which might be at the moment current with Optimism, equivalent to 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 by which EVM appropriate zero-knowledge rollups (ZkEVMs) have been taking the highlight from optimistic rollup options equivalent to Optimism.

In response to knowledge from L2beat, Matter Labs’ not too long ago launched ZkEVM ZKSync Period has overtaken Optimism by way of community exercise.

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