  • On July 25 Arbitrum started rolling out the Nitro Upgrade on its testnet.
  • As the upgrade got a green signal, Arbitrum would bring Nitro on its mainnet within a few weeks.
  • Hence, Nitro boosted the speed and reduced the fees on ETH’s biggest roll up.

Arbitrum started testing its Nitro upgrade. Considering the success of this test. And executing it within a few weeks. This upgrade is developed to expand the number of transactions. The transaction on the network can be processed while reducing costs.

Arbitrum is the most widely embraced scaling resolution on Ethereum. It presently ranks first overall in Total Value Locked (TVL). TVL is a metric that measures the value stored in a protocol’s smart contracts. And for promising rollups and #7 across all blockchains.

The launch of Nitro has become a key point for ETH as this launch will create one of its primary scaling resolutions in a better way. In contrast, Abritrum also assists the network to evolve more scalable with more rapid and affordable transactions.

What does the Aritrum CEO Say?

The CEO of Aritrum Steven Goldfeder said, “Nitro will allow us to increase the demand significantly to many times Ethereum’s capacity. That will massively increase our ability to scale.”

He further stated, “Our mission is to provide the best scale to users and scale Ethereum using the best technology today, meaning scaling Ethereum’s security and scaling Ethereum’s decentralization.”

Steven elaborates,

“Onboarding for developers was already super easy as Arbitrum has always been fully EVM compatible. With Nitro, even the internals are the same. Imagine that Arbitrum and Ethereum are cars. With Arbitrum classic, we built a beautiful car that looks, feels, and drives just like the Ethereum car. But if you pick up the hood, it looks very different. In the hood of the Arbitrum car is the AVM (Arbitrum Virtual Machine). With Nitro, even the internals are the same.”

As the whole industry is ready for The Merger in Q4 this year, Nitro will be the latest development emerging with the ETH rollup.
