Optimism is a rollup scaling solution that allows users to submit transactions on the Ethereum network and get them executed faster for a much lower gas cost. This is called a Layer 2 (L2) solution, where users typically have the same addresses as they do on the Ethereum blockchain (L1). There are gateways that allow messages and assets to be transferred between the universes. On L1 Ethereum, thousands of nodes run transactions to verify that the proposed block that includes it is valid, which is an expensive process and leads to high fees. Optimistic roll ups provide faster and cheaper transactions and the smart contract has only two tasks – deposits and withdrawals and verifying proofs of transactions on chain. This makes the process more efficient and a lot cheaper.
