Ethereum’s largest Layer 2 network launches ultra-low-cost transactions

Arbitrum announced the launch of Arbitrum Nova Chain, a big step forward for the Ethereum community. As Nova is operational, two Arbitrum chains are running live on the mainnet. Nova is expected to be the solution of choice for gaming and social applications on the Arbitrum network, Ethereum’s largest Layer 2. 

Arbitrum One will continue to host DeFi and NFT projects. Further, Nova’s launch has reduced the cost of transactions on Arbitrum to ultra-low. Nova is set to give developers equal access to have their apps ready for public launch. 

Arbitrum had announced the launch of AnyTrust technology earlier this year, revealing that this would optimize the network for high security and ultra-low-cost transactions. Nova has called builders and developers to request access to the new chain for developing solutions ahead of its public launch. 

The key difference between Rollups and AnyTrust is the degree of decentralization and transaction costs. AnyTrust is superior to Rollups with cheaper transactions. Networks developed on AnyTrust, like Arbitrum’s Nova chain, can therefore support highly cost-sensitive applications with high transaction volume expectations. 

Arbitrum’s next step is to open up the new chain to everyone and test the stability of Nova. End-users will have the opportunity to test the Nova chain in the upcoming weeks.
