Rollups on Polkadot

Yesterday, Vitalik Buterin published a great article called “A rollup centric ethereum roadmap”

He said that the Ethereum ecosystem is likely to be all-in on rollups (plus some plasma and channels) as a scaling strategy for the near and mid-term future .

I agree on his opinion. It seems that a Rollup is a key success factor and we are working on the Optimistic Virtual Machine on Polkadot now. Optimistic Rollup is a subset of the OVM. Imo, Polkadot cross-chain message passing (XCMP) will be realized on the mainnet 2020Q4 or 2021Q. This is much faster than ETH2.0 (mainly ETH1.0+Sharding). If we can make Rollups (Optimistic Rollups and ZK rollups 2020Q4 or 2021Q1), this is huge for the community.

Good read, reading into rollups at the moment. Do you have some more material or resources on rollups?

When will optimistic rollups be added? I heard ZK first then optimistic.

One dev is the Optimistic Virtual Machine (OP Rollups are the subset of the OVM)Another dev is working on ZK Rollups. I think we can deliver them almost the same time.
