    Why Choose Arbitrum Orbit for Your Rollup?

    There are several compelling reasons to choose Arbitrum’s Orbit framework for building your dedicated rollup with Ankr's RaaS:

    Endless Customization and Flexibility: Orbit allows you to tailor your chain to your specific needs. You can choose between Layer 2 or Layer 3 architecture, define custom functionalities, and even control gas fees. This level of control is ideal for projects with unique requirements.

    • Custom Gas Tokens: Choose an ERC-20 token for custom gas fees allowing you to create native economies and utility incentives, abstracting your user experience away from underlying ETH gas.

    • Modular Data Availability: Modular DA solutions, like AnyTrust, Avail, Celestia, and Eigen DA, allow developers to reduce costs while retaining high security.

    • Self-Governance: Control your own destiny; no need to submit to shared governance constraints. Orbit chains can also deploy technology upgrades, like new versions of ArbOS, whenever they’re ready.

    • Flexible Execution: Choice of execution environment via Arbitrum Stylus EVM+, allowing for full composability between Solidity and Rust, C, and C++ smart contracts while reducing gas costs.

    Scalability Powerhouse: Orbit chains benefit from Arbitrum's Nitro technology, known for its impressive scalability. You can expect significantly faster transaction processing and lower gas fees.

    Isolation from Network Congestion: Orbit chains operate independently of the Ethereum or Arbitrum networks. This means your application won't be affected by congestion from other dApps, ensuring predictable transaction costs and smooth operation.

    Cutting-Edge Features: Orbit allows you to implement features ahead of the Ethereum roadmap. This could include advancements like account abstraction, where users interact with wallets instead of complex addresses.

    Thriving Ecosystem & Community: High-profile projects in Web3 have chosen to build new chains with Arbitrum, including Xai, Rari, Kinto, and many more.
