Deploy a rollup ​

This section provides various guides and tutorials that cover different options for deploying rollups on Celestia.

What is a rollup? ​

A rollup is a type of blockchain that offloads some work to a layer 1, like Celestia. Rollups host applications and process user transactions. Once those transactions get processed, they are then published to layer 1. It’s layer 1s job to order those transactions and check that they are available, at minimum.

Over time, two primary designs emerged for rollups: optimistic and zk rollups.
