Optimism pronounces upgrades enabling ‘one-click’ roll-up deployment
According to a weblog put up printed by Optimism on Sept. 18, the crew anticipates Ethereum-native protocols will be capable of launch on its community in a single click on by the top of October.
“Any tooling that can run on Ethereum will run identically on Optimistic Ethereum,” the put up highlighted, including:
Optimism, the Ethereum Foundation-backed crew constructing growing a layer-two roll-up community, has introduced upgrades to its protocol that can allow builders to deploy on its community in simply “one-click.”
“Anyone who has written code targeting Geth can now deploy without change — even for advanced features like traces and gas.”
The put up asserts that Optimism overhauled its code in a bid to increase past Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility to attain “EVM equivalence” via shrinking the protocol all the way down to its most light-weight and environment friendly kind attainable.
To notice their minimalist philosophy, Optimism’s customized compiler was deleted alongside greater than “25,000 lines” of different code as a part of the upgrades.
“Building an EVM-compliant rollup poses an even greater challenge: supporting the entire Ethereum stack within the new science,” the put up asserts. “Re-implementing security-critical EVM features is costly; every additional line of code introduces the risk of vulnerabilities.”
While the crew says it has achieved full EVM equivalence with the Geth Ethereum consumer, they now hope to facilitate compatibility with various node implementations corresponding to OpenEthereum and Erigon with “under 1,000 lines of code.”
Optimism added that no adjustments have been made to its present safety mannequin via the newest launch.

Optimism’s progress comes as capital migrates from the Ethereum mainnet to EVM suitable chains and layer-two scaling options in a bid to mitigate the excessive charges related to transactions executed on Ethereum’s base layer.
According to Dune Analytics, rival rollup community Arbitrum at the moment boasts the biggest Ethereum bridge by complete worth locked (TVL) with $2.62 billion regardless of having launched roughly three weeks in the past.
Arbitrum is adopted by the Polygon ERC-20 Bridge with practically $2.35 billion, the Avalanche Bridge with $1.86 billion, and the Fantom Anyswap Bridge with $476 million.
According to Dune Analytics, within the TVL rating of the Ethereum Bridge, Arbitrum has surpassed Polygon to rank first. Arbitrum accounts for 34.6% of the TVL of the Ethereum Bridge, and Polygon accounts for 30.4%. pic.twitter.com/dYOoSghyY2
