4EVERLAND + Optopia.ai


In this case study, we delve into the transformative collaboration between 4EVERLAND, and Optopia.ai, a pioneering AI-focused Layer 2 blockchain project. Since its inception in early 2024, Optopia.ai has leveraged 4EVERLAND’s Rollup-as-a-Service (RaaS) to drive significant advancements in artificial intelligence applications within the blockchain.

What is Optopia.ai?

Optopia.ai is an Ethereum Layer 2 blockchain compatible with the EVM, utilizing 4EVERLAND RaaS as its underlying Rollup technology.

The unique aspect of Optopia.ai lies in being an AI-driven, intent-focused second-layer network that permits permissionless creation of intents. It leverages tokenomics to empower AI agents to execute intents, thereby creating a more intelligent, highly active second layer with outstanding daily AI interactions. Optopia’s mission is to simplify Web3 operations through AI agents, enabling more users to enter the Web3 industry with ease and enhancing AI agents’ capabilities through tokenomics to unlock the true potential of Web3.

The continuous advancement of AI and blockchain technologies has attracted increasing users to the Web3 ecosystem. The challenge lies in making blockchain technology more user-friendly and utilizing AI capabilities to support Web3 applications. The decentralized nature of blockchain ensures data security and transparency, while AI’s data processing and analytics capabilities can enhance services provided to blockchain users. Optopia.ai aims to establish a decentralized network where anyone can freely use and contribute to developing AI-related applications. Its goal is to drive innovation in the AI field, expand the scope of AI application scenarios, and improve the efficiency of AI application deployment.

Optopia.ai is entirely community-driven, creating an innovative and transparent space for AI enthusiasts.

How Optopia.ai Works

In today’s rapidly advancing blockchain technology landscape, scalability and efficiency are the primary prerequisites for achieving widespread adoption.

Optopia innovatively adopts a second-layer solution, directly addressing the scalability challenges faced by Ethereum and other blockchain networks. By seamlessly integrating with the Ethereum ecosystem, it provides full compatibility and interoperability with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), offering an intelligent and cost-effective method for scaling decentralized AI applications.

Built on the Op Stack, which is a standardized, shared, and open-source development framework, Optopia aims to enhance both user and developer experiences without disrupting the familiar cryptocurrency environment.

Technical Architecture

  • OP Stack: OP Stack serves as a standardized, shared, and open-source development stack. It acts as a software component that defines specific layers within the Optopia ecosystem while also functioning as a module in the existing layers.

  • Ethereum DA: Ethereum DA is currently the most widely used data availability module within OP Stack. When utilizing the Ethereum DA module, source data can be extracted from any information accessible on the Ethereum blockchain. This includes Ethereum calldata, events, and 4844 data Blobs.

  • Arweave backup: Arweave functions as a blockchain infrastructure designed to address the permanence and accessibility of data. Its “permanent file storage” technology, distinct from traditional blockchain data storage methods, ensures the permanent preservation of data.

Optopia Intent Publishing Hub

The Optopia Intent Publishing Hub operates within the Optopia Layer 2 as an accessible and fair ecosystem for artificial intelligence. Its mission is to foster a collaborative and innovative environment, empowering AI to become a powerful tool for Web3 applications.

Roles within the Optopia intent publishing hub consist of Intent Publisher, AI Agent, Builder, and OPAI Holder. Each role is crucial in incentivizing and governing AI applications within the Optopia ecosystem:

  • Intent Publisher: The Intent Publisher is responsible for creating intents within the Intent Center and incentivizing AI Agents to execute these intents by allocating valuable tokens.

  • AI Agent: AI Agents interact with the Intent Center to access intents and utilize existing knowledge to attempt and complete these intents.

  • Builder: Builders play a crucial role in training and publishing knowledge for AI Agents to learn and use within the AI ecosystem.

  • OPAI Holder: OPAI Holders have the ability to lock OPAI tokens and receive Vote Lock Tokens (vlOPAI), enabling them to participate in the governance of the Intent Center by determining the emission weight of intents.

The goal of the Intent Publishing Hub is to empower AI as a powerful tool for Web3, facilitate user entry into the Web3 industry, and enhance the capabilities of AI agents through tokenomics, unlocking the true potential of Web3.

Technical Support and Implementation

4EVERLAND provides crucial underlying technical support to Optopia.ai.

4EVERLAND Rollup-as-a-Service (RaaS) is a product designed specifically for the deployment of customized applications. Similar to software-as-a-service products, it relieves enterprises from maintaining any part of the service or managing complex software and hardware configurations. With RaaS, developers can easily access SDKs or dashboards, launch custom rollups, and focus on their core business without worrying about node operation, code construction, or maintenance (The latest version of 4EVERLAND RaaS allows businesses to use various frameworks such as OP Stack, Polygon CDK, and Arbitrum Orbit, and incorporates a wider array of Data Availability layers to enhance the convenience of rollup deployment).

Through 4EVERLAND RaaS, Optopia.ai has successfully implemented an efficient, EVM-compatible Layer 2 solution to scale decentralized AI applications. Additionally, 4EVERLAND undertakes centralized front-end hosting for the Optopia.ai website and provides RPC services, further offering a stable and reliable technical foundation for its applications.

Data Availability and Security

The success of Optopia.ai not only stems from its technological prowess but also from its effective solutions in data availability. The Perma Blobs Archive Service, conceived by 4EVERLAND, acts as a Beacon Blobs Sidecar RPC for Layer 2 services. It is an open-source tool designed to enable Layer 2 project developers to use OP Stack for building Layer 2. By simply syncing and running the Perma Blobs Archive Service and configuring relevant information in the setup files, every transaction on Layer 2 is uploaded to Arweave.

Optopia.ai adopts this efficient and reliable solution for DA layer construction, enhancing the stability and reliability of on-chain data and reducing the risk of data loss.

4EVERLAND RaaS Benefits

When the Optopia.ai team embarked on building an Ethereum Layer 2 solution, they opted for the 4EVERLAND RaaS service because the 4EVER Rollup Stack utilizes the proven OP Stack (Optimism Bedrock) to provide Rollup deployment. This choice ensures a reliable and efficient blockchain scalability framework while incorporating Perma Blobs Archive technology to guarantee permanency of data in the data availability (DA) layer.

Furthermore, 4EVERLAND boasts several unique features:

  • Cost-effectiveness: Transactions can be executed at rates 10–100 times cheaper compared to Ethereum, leading to significant cost savings.

  • Ethereum Equivalence: Full support for Ethereum smart contracts and developer tooling, enabling seamless integration with the Ethereum ecosystem.

  • Fast Block Times: Rapid block times of 2 seconds per block enhance transaction processing speed.

  • Support for Various Data Availability (DA) Layers: Optional backing for Celestia/Arweave Data Availability (DA) offers further cost reduction and improved data management.

  • Licensing: Extensive permissiveness through the MIT licensing scheme promotes flexibility and accessibility for developers.

  • Superchain Integration: Gain access to the Optimism Superchain, a network of interconnected chains that provide scalability and interoperability for enhanced performance.

  • Comprehensive Infrastructure: Services include a comprehensive infrastructure encompassing RPC, block explorer, indexer, and more, ensuring a seamless user experience.

Future Outlook

As the collaboration between 4EVERLAND and Optopia.ai continues to grow, the integration of AI with blockchain technology is expected to open up new avenues for innovation. This partnership not only highlights the potential in the convergence of these technologies but also promises more scalable, secure, and innovative solutions for the industry.
