IPv6 is a protocol for giving computers ip addresses, unlike IPv4 which was a 32 bit address IPv6 is a 128bit address that means it can have a greater number of IP address combinations.
currently IPv6 is only optional because only a few websites support it (i.e. haven't yet moved to use IPv6). The concept of IPv6 has been there for a long time, initially no one expected that IPv4 address will ever get over. But i guess they are and thus the shift to IPv6

Do your own homework.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
