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 Ethereum?


Ethereum emerges as a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform empowering developers to craft and deploy smart contracts alongside dApps. Pioneering the smart contract concept, Ethereum enables self-executing agreements with terms directly encoded into its blockchain, eliminating the need for intermediaries. Additionally, Ethereum serves as a hub for the creation and exchange of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and various digital assets. Its intrinsic cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), facilitates network transactions and incentivizes miners to uphold network security. Ethereum's evolution to Ethereum 2.0 introduces a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, aiming to enhance scalability and energy efficiency.
