Bybit’s integration of Arbitrum

Bybit is one of the world’s fastest-growing crypto exchanges and its completion of Arbitrum (an Ethereum Layer 2 solution) integration means so much for it.

Following the Arbitrum integration, Bybit users will now be able to deposit and withdraw USD Coin (USDC), Tether (USDT), and Ethereum (ETH) on the Arbitrum network.

In a nutshell, the Arbitrum network is an Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution that was developed to decongest the Ethereum mainnet. It makes crypto transactions on the Ethereum network cheaper by enabling transaction processing operations to be conducted off-chain (on side chains) and posting the results of the transactions on the mainnnet instead of doing the processing on the mainnet.

Bybit is banking on Arbitrum integration to also ensure that its users enjoy trustless security where anyone can expect the correct result after every transaction. It also intends to benefit from Arbitrum’s speed, rapid throughput, and low gas fees.

Following the integration the co-founder and CEO of Bybit Ben Zhou said:

“Arbitrum is a promising and innovative scaling technology that we are excited to bring to Bybit users — with its decentralized, developer-friendly, and broad ecosystem support, we continue to offer next-level products and services to all crypto lovers.”

Bybit has already proved to be a reliable and stable crypto exchange. It has been operating throughout the year without experiencing any downtime or overload.
