VC Firm Andreessen Horowitz Releases New Optimism Rollup Client
Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, also known as a16z, has released its Optimism rollup client called Magi, which is written in Rust programming language. The firm aims to provide diversity to Optimism rollup clients, which allow developers to interact with blockchain networks. The client, Magi, is expected to encourage safety and bring more contributors into the ecosystem. Optimism, which is a layer two solution, enables decentralised applications to operate on Ethereum’s platform, and eliminate congestion of the blockchain network. The new client aims to provide an alternative to the current client, op-node, maintained by OP Labs, and written in the Go programming language. Magi’s development is still in progress and is likely to take months before it becomes a viable alternative.
