Optimism is a fast, stable, and scalable L2 blockchain built by Ethereum developers for Ethereum developers. Built as a minimal extension to existing Ethereum software, Optimism’s EVM-equivalent architecture scales your Ethereum apps without surprises. If it works on Ethereum, it works on Optimism at a fraction of the cost.
Bedrock is the next major release of the Optimism network, planned for the first quarter of 2023.
Optimism Bedrock is coming soon™️, and when it does it will change the rollup game forever.
It will lay the protocol's foundation for years to come and serve as THE model for rollup architecture.
It's named Bedrock for good reason. 🪨https://t.co/NNAVdseULA

What’s the big deal with Bedrock?
Bedrock is the cheapest, fastest, and most advanced rollup architecture. Ever. Anyone can say it, only Optimism can back it up. Bedrock is the culmination of countless hours of research and development with the goal of building the best rollup architecture yet. And we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.
What can you expect?
The Optimism team is spending a lot of effort to make sure the transition to Bedrock is seamless. Bedrock will be a transparent update: you won’t notice anything as a user. Developers can check out the OP changeset to see if any Bedrock changes will affect their applications, and node providers can read this guide on how Bedrock nodes will change. Here are a few interesting things you’ll notice:
