The long-awaited layer two scaling options improve for Uniswap has lastly been noticed within the wild with the launch of model 3 on Optimistic Ethereum.
In a put up on July 13, the world’s hottest decentralized change acknowledged that it was happy to lastly announce the alpha launch of Uniswap v3 on the Optimistic Ethereum (OΞ) mainnet.
The alpha launch is a restricted model of the complete system which helps builders deploy the system step by step and tackle any points which will come up. The blog post elaborated:
“Please deal with this as an early alpha product. Optimistic Ethereum is a fancy Layer 2 scaling resolution nonetheless in want of rigorous battle testing.”
The DEX warned of potential downtime, and acknowledged that withdrawals from OΞ to layer one will take seven days. It additionally acknowledged that there are restricted belongings at launch, particularly ETH, USDT, WBTC, DAI, and SNX, however extra can be added within the coming days and weeks.

The transaction speeds can be elevated over the approaching weeks and months because the infrastructure is examined and optimized at scale.
Protocol founder Hayden Adams commented on the launch and high-speed transaction capabilities, including:
“Constructing normal goal Optimistic Rollups is a unprecedented endeavor and a vital step for decentralized finance to realize mass adoption.”

Preliminary customers have been impressed, with Bankless founder David Hoffman exclaiming “It is instantaneous and insanely low cost. 5 swaps in 30 seconds, and I wasn’t even attempting to be quick.”
Uniswap stated that the scaling resolution is complementary to Ethereum 2.0:
“Scaling Ethereum can be an iterative course of, however it is a main step ahead. Optimistic Rollups and ETH 2.0 are complementary scaling options and collectively will propel DeFi to mainstream adoption.”
OΞ makes use of an optimistic rollup which modifications the zero-knowledge consensus precept by assuming that every one transaction verifications are right. Customers solely intervene provided that they see an incorrect transaction whereby they’ll submit a “fraud-proof” to sign that the information is wrong.
DeFi platform Synthetix has additionally introduced the launch of Optimistic Ethereum for its layer two change for the week starting July 26. In late Could, the Ethereum layer two scaling options supplier introduced a collaboration with blockchain analytics platform Etherscan.
