What is Arbitrum (ARB)?
Arbitrum is a Layer-2 blockchain designed to scale Ethereum, developed by Offchain Labs.
Arbitrum was founded by Ed Felten, formerly President Obama’s deputy Chief Technology Officer, Steven Goldfeder (CEO) and Harry Kalodner (CTO). The three co-founders met at Princeton University.
Arbitrum - in their own words
Arbitrum is an(L2) scaling solution. It uses to achieve its goal of improving speed, scalability and cost-efficiency on Ethereum. Arbitrum benefits from the security and compatibility of Ethereum. Another benefit is the higher and lower fees compared to Ethereum. That is made possible thanks to moving most of the computation and storage load off-chain.
Offchain Labs, the developers behind Arbitrum, announced the shift to a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) structure — the Arbitrum DAO.
ARB is the native token of the Arbitrum Network and is used for governance. Holders of ARB are able to vote on proposals that may impact features, protocol upgrades, fund allocation, and election of a Security Council. The Security Council is a group of 12 members elected by Arbitrum DAO participants, and are responsible for addressing risks within the Arbitrum ecosystem.
