We are excited to announce the integration of another L2 scaling solution after Optimistic Ethereum and the upcoming zkSync 2.0 integrations - we are bringing Arbitrum to Tenderly as well! Considered to be one of the most EVM-compatible rollups, it’s compatible with the EVM at the bytecode level, and any language that can compile to EVM works out of the box — such as Solidity and Vyper (both of which are supported by Tenderly).

Since we are busy with a lot of stuff - improving the overall user experience as well as adding new features - we decided to split up the Arbitrum integration into phases in order to maximize the value we provide and give you (our users) access to Arbitrum on Tenderly as soon as possible.

Phase 1, which is now completed and available for use, includes the standard EVM implementation without Arbitrum precompiles and custom gas table, which enables the following (for transactions that don’t touch any of the custom precompiles):

  • Transaction Debugging
  • Simulator
  • Forks

In Phase 2 we will implement the Arbitrum precompiles which will expand the available feature set:

  • Transactions listing for single contracts and projects
  • Alerting
  • Analytics

In Phase 3 we will mimic the Arbitrum gas usage, which is going to ensure transaction re-execution and enable the Gas Profiler.

"Tenderly is critical infrastructure and has been one of the most requested tools on Arbitrum and we are very excited to see the first phase of Tenderly support go live. We look forward to continuing to work with the Tenderly team on additional support for the Arbitrum ecosystem."

Arbitrum has announced that they are working on the next iteration of the platform (the Nitro upgrade) using the standard technologies like WASM and Geth, which will be more EVM-compatible, an order-of-magnitude faster than their current tech, and it will be rolled out as a seamless upgrade when it is completed. You can read more about it right here.

All that’s left is for you to go to your Tenderly Dashboard and try out Arbitrum! Follow Tenderly and Arbitrum on Twitter for all the updates, and check out everything that you can do right now in our docs.
