How Ethereum scales: simplified

Rollups

  1. Rollups and application developers themselves will continue to optimize. We have seen Optimism decrease transaction fees by 30% in January, with another 30% cut due soon. Arbitrum also cut their fees in January, with Arbitrum Nitro estimated to slash fees by 50%. This will continue throughout 2022. Aave developer Emilio describes how they have reduced transaction fees 10x to $0.16-$0.25 on optimistic rollups through optimizations. These are some examples — costs on rollups will continue to decrease over time as they mature.
  2. Unlike L1s, rollups get cheaper the more activity there is. So as rollups mature, there’s more activity, and token incentives, we’ll see rollups get cheaper.
