The process of validating a specific transaction within the batch typically involves 3 steps:

Trusted State: This state is given by the trusted sequencer almost instantaneously, No L1 transactions are required.

Virtual State: Transactions are in L1. These transactions and they order cannot be modified as the state is final and anybody could calculate.

Verified State: When the virtual state is verified by the smart contract, the funds can be withdrawn
