Would it be possible to get a more comprehensive update on the roll-up situation from the team?
I know the intention has always been to go roll-up route. Then, I know we hit a speed-bump and the roll-up was either delayed, or cancelled in the near term ? Yet, I see other EVM projects actively talking about migrating to a roll-up, so I am just confused what happen on our end.
So, a few questions:
What were the different roll-up options we looked at?
What in particular was wrong with the roll-up we were planning on going over to that prevented us from migrating?
Which features do we have planned that are now delayed or cannot go into effect without a roll-up?
What other scaling options are we looking at?
What is the estimated time-frame on a roll-up like solution. Are we looking at months or years?
This was addressed in the recent community call I saw. In a nutshell:
Optimism rollups turned out to be more complex than expected. Arbitrum is currently rolling out and gaining traction. But the Sovryn team isn’t sure if either roll-up provides sufficient security guarantees. They’re now looking at ZK-rollups, which they believe is the most elegant solution. But this is a process of many months, most likely.
In light of recent events, I would like to bring this topic back on the forum so there is a single post for updates instead of comments scattered around different channels.
John Light had a tweet about a Sovereign Rollup being one step lower than a Validity Rollup. So does it make sense for Sovryn to become a Sovereign Rollup first and later, if it ever becomes possible, become a Validity Rollup?
Or do the Sovryn devs have other plans? Would love some update.
I understand that Sovryn devs have always been very careful with any updates/changes but I would also not want Sovryn to miss the early advantage they have in this subject.
