Offchain Labs introduces Arbitrum (CRYPTO:ARB) BOLD on a public testnet, heralding a significant advancement in the Arbitrum ecosystem aimed at bolstering security and decentralisation.

Arbitrum BOLD employs interactive fraud proofs within optimistic rollups, streamlining dispute resolution and promoting permissionless validation, thus enhancing the network's resilience against attacks.

The protocol introduces a novel approach allowing a single party to efficiently handle multiple challenges, paving the way for a more robust validation process and fostering a more inclusive validator community.

With a community-driven approach, including pending proposals and a forthcoming community vote for full integration, Arbitrum aims to decentralise its validation process while ensuring rigorous testing and audits to maintain protocol integrity.
