Clipper has expanded to Arbitrum! This new integration means Clipper users now have even more options for cheap, lightning-fast swaps and better access to Ethereum’s vast, increasingly scalable ecosystem.
What is Arbitrum?
Arbitrum is a leading layer-two (L2) scaling solution that uses optimistic rollups to provide cheaper and faster transactions on Ethereum while boasting the same security level as mainnet (uncommon for L2s). It was created with Ethereum compatibility as a top priority, so the experience feels almost identical to using Ethereum, with the important exception of being much faster and cheaper. For comparison, Arbitrum has a throughput of up to 40,000 transactions per second (TPS) while Ethereum processes about 15-40 TPS with ~ 15-30x higher gas fees. Arbitrum is currently ranked the number one largest rollup in terms of total value locked, with an increasing number of prominent DeFi protocols deployed on the network.
Providing Liquidity on Arbitrum
Like with Clipper’s Polygon integration, anyone can be an LP in Clipper’s Arbitrum pool and Coves. There’s no whitelist requirement, no deposit limits (woo-hoo!), and no lockup period! Being a Clipper LP has never been easier – get started here.
With this latest integration, Arbitrum joins other leading Ethereum scaling solutions, like Optimism and Polygon, in helping deliver lightning fast, low-cost swaps to traders across the Clipperverse!
