What is Arbitrum?
Arbitrum is an Ethereum rollup and layer 2 scalability solution which is developed to increase the scalability of the Ethereum mainnet. Ethereum (PoW) is very congested and has higher gas fees. layer 2 scalability solutions are added as protocols on the base layer of Ethereum. These protocols, like Arbitrum, take the whole blocks of transactions and validate. The transactions are validated using multichannel support and then deposit them back to the base layer. The base layer limits to just the creation of the blocks and then adding the blockchain to the chain.

Adding new chains to the NFT marketplace is the best approach to expand the community circle by inviting creators from other projects and chains. However, this means the platform becomes even more competitive and the newer projects will have to struggle more to win exposure.
