What is Arbitrum?
Arbitrum is a second-layer calling solution for the Ethereum blockchain similar to Zksync. It provides faster and low-cost transactions without interfering with the security of the Ethereum mainchain.
Arbitrum enables off-chain computation and on-chain verification with the help of a technology called “Rollups”.
Since it allows off-chain computation, the amount of data stored on the main chain will be reduced which results in faster and low-cost transactions.
Rollup technology uses the combination of an “Arbitrum Virtual Machine” (AVM) and a “Rollup chain” to execute smart contracts.
AVM is a virtual machine allowing off-chain execution of smart contracts and the Rollup chain creates the mechanism for on-chain verification to secure the off-chain computation.
Because of all these benefits, many MetaMask users want to add Arbitrum to MetaMask Wallet.
