What is Optimism

Optimism is an Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution designed to be low-cost and lightning fast. They provide scalable and decentralized infrastructure in order to fund their mission of scaling Ethereum’s technology and values.

Their protocol, an optimistic rollup, leverages the consensus and security of the parent blockchain (in this case, Ethereum) while providing near instantaneous transaction confirmation and much lower gas fees.
