The Arbitrum Foundation has announced that its Orbit program is now ready for mainnet, allowing developers to create their own layer-3 networks that can settle on the Arbitrum main network. Arbitrum is the largest layer-2 network on the Ethereum blockchain. The Orbit program, initiated to decentralize Arbitrum, enables developers to create their own chains that settle on various Arbitrum layer-2 networks. Previously, Orbit-supported networks could only settle on Arbitrum's test network. The foundation has also partnered with Celestia to offer a data availability layer for apps built on Orbit. This development comes as major Ethereum layer-2 projects like Arbitrum, OP Labs, Polygon, and Matter Labs are opening up their technology for customization and potential revenue streams.
