Features

Optimistic Rollup

The testnet chains use the OP stack and offer lightning-fast confirmation times, high throughput, and low fees. The technology and experience of the testnet chains are almost exactly the same as production rollups on mainnet. More information on the Rollup protocol is here: Rollup Protocol
Due to their full EVM compatibility, most EVM-compatible developer tools will work with testnet rollups without any additional setup. You can find a list of included tools here:

Block explorer

Testnet rollups come bundled with a block explorer that allows you to view and analyze all transactions and balances on the chain.

Bridge Interface

Each testnet rollup has an associated bridge between it and its L1. We offer an interface to access the bridge, which can be found at https://testnet.caldera.dev/​
