IRYS 101


A bundle is a data structure representing a group of transactions. Any number of layer 2 data transactions can be compressed and included in a single bundle layer 1 transaction.

Why Bundles?

Bundles allow for infinite transaction scaling - allowing up to 2^256 transactions to be stored in a single bundle. As bundle sizes increase, Arweave's transaction capacity can increase linearly - i.e. using 1 million item bundles allows for a 1,000,000x increase in layer 1 transaction capacity.

The bundle spec, designed by Irys, is open-sourced and is currently implemented in JavaScript (opens in a new tab), Go (opens in a new tab), and Rust (opens in a new tab).
