Nitrogen (Orbit Celestia) Testnet


Nitrogen is an Arbitrum Orbit public testnet that uses Celestia as its data availability layer.

With Nitrogen, L2 transaction data are written to Celestia as blobs instead of being published as Ethereum calldata. Once the data are attested to by the Celestia validators set, the resulting DA attestation is then stored as calldata on Ethereum. By doing so, the cost of the calldata becomes relatively negligible, even when the actual blob data is megabytes in size. The sequencer will then be able to retrieve the DA attestation from the the calldata and then retrieve the blob from Celestia.

To learn more about Orbit Celestia, please refer to Celestia's Introduction to Arbitrum rollups with Celestia as DA article.
