What to know about ARB

To stand out from other scaling solutions for Ethereum, Arbitrum uses a feature called optimistic rollups. It claims to offer numerous advantages compared to other optimistic rollup solutions, including decentralization, flexibility, scalability, and compatibility.

When it comes to decentralization, Arbitrum doesn’t rely on any centralized sequencer or operator to order transactions. Instead, it utilizes a decentralized validator network, each of whom stake ARB tokens and earn fees for securing the network.

Flexibility-wise, the project enables developers to deploy programs written in popular languages, such as C++, Rust, and more.

In terms of scalability, Arbitrum maintains the security guarantees of Ethereum, while increasing its capacity to handle thousands of transactions per second (TPS) with fast finality and low fees.

Lastly, compatibility is another strong suit of this project, as it supports unmodified Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) transactions and contracts. This feature allows any existing Ethereum decentralized application (dApp) to run on Arbitrum without any code changes.

Platform governance

ARB serves as the governance token for the Arbitrum blockchain, and is an integral part of its ecosystem. ARB is an ERC-20 token, designed to enable holders to have a say in the development and direction of the ecosystem by participating in the network’s decision-making processes. 

More precisely, the ARB token has three (3) key features:

  • Transfer of value
  • Governance voting
  • Security Council election decisions

One of ARB’s primary functions within the Arbitrum ecosystem is to facilitate the transfer of value. The token acts as a convenient means of exchange within the network, as holders can send and receive ARB tokens efficiently and securely.

Voting on important governance decisions that shape the Arbitrum ecosystem’s future is also within the power of ARB token holders. Such decisions may include technical changes to network infrastructure, investments in the ecosystem, and the allocation of funds. 

Governance participation usually entails token holders submitting votes on various issues via an open forum. There, they connect their wallets and respond to open proposals, which helps ensure the process remains democratic and transparent. 

Besides decisions related to network governance, ARB token holders may also vote to elect members for the Security Council. The Council consists of 12 members responsible for managing the Arbitrum ecosystem’s treasury wallet. Token holders help shape the council’s composition and ensure the network’s integrity and security by participating in these elections.
