About Blockchains

What is Optimism?

Optimism provides a Layer 2 scaling fix for Ethereum, greatly boosting its scalability and cutting down on gas fees. It maintains robust security measures and guarantees a smooth development experience. Through Optimistic Rollups, it enables swift transaction processing, positioning Ethereum as a viable option for deploying intricate and interactive applications.

What is Cronos?

Cronos emerges as an interoperable blockchain, streamlining the migration of applications and crypto assets from various chains while prioritizing low transaction costs, rapid throughput, and fast finalization times. It operates as an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible chain, augmented with support for Inter-Blockchain Communications (IBC) networks based on the Cosmos SDK. This integration empowers developers to create and launch dApps atop the EVM infrastructure.
