Introduction

Arbitrum is a layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum designed to improve scalability and reduce transaction fees. It utilizes a technology called optimistic rollups, which enables faster and cheaper transactions by bundling multiple transactions into a single batch. With Arbitrum, users can enjoy faster transaction confirmation times and significantly lower gas costs compared to directly interacting with the Ethereum mainnet. It aims to enhance the overall user experience and enable the widespread adoption of decentralized applications (DApps) and decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms by addressing the scalability challenges of the Ethereum network.

The network resumed operations as soon as the bug was fixed and ETH was manually topped up in the Arbitrum multi-signature wallet.
