Modular March

Unveiling the modular stack of FuelVM, FuelProver & Sequencer and more X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: Another episode with an Ethereum scaling OG, Nick Dodson, who pioneered the original idea of optimistic rollups before they were the norm. Nick is actually also working on an innovative concept called fast finality optimistic rollups, which we are [...]

A Closer Look at Celestia’s Modular Approach, node architecture and innovative tech like Blobstream X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: The core innovation of data availability in the modular landscape revolves around minimalism. Due to the minimal smart contract execution capabilities of altDA chains, they can focus solely on providing a specialized service of data verification [...]

A light, enjoyable conversation about modularity and memes X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: Not sure we need to write too much about this one! We mostly laughed and had a good time while understanding the definitions of some key terms in the space. Togruhl, one of the early Ethereum contributors and Scroll co-founders, gave us [...]

Where Solana & Ethereum Collide For The Greater Good X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: Typically, you wouldn’t think of Solana having a strong footing in the modular thesis. After all, the design choices they have elegantly pioneered (credit where credit is due) revolve around scaling a single state machine. This simply won’t scale to billions [...]

A truly fascinating conversation about cryptoeconomic incentive models X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: We really enjoyed this presentation. While we’ve had multiple shared sequencers talks on Modular March, each one has been far different. Today’s deep dive is around the game theory and incentive designs behind creating a rollup ecosystem which feels completely seamless and [...]

Understanding The Avail Vision In Less Than 15 Minutes X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: We’ve heard of the fragmentation problem many times in Modular March, and we’ve came to learn of a variety of solutions like shared sequencing, intents-based interop, and more. Today, in less than 10 minutes, we hear the vision from Avail’s head [...]

Dive Into Move VM and Aptos’ Stack X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: If you are modular-pilled this will be a refreshing short chat. If you want to understand the counterargument to building in a modularized fashion, you’ll enjoy this. Andy sat down with Avery Ching, co-founder of Aptos to discuss his perspective on the modular [...]

The Power of Interconnectivity in Modular Thesis X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: What an interesting conversation this was. Going way back to the core ethos of cryptoeconomic systems, we took a bit of a journey through PoW, PoS, and now modularity. It was quite a different presentation from the previous Modular March episodes. We sat [...]

How Intent-Based Interop Will Play A Role In The Modular Expansion X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: Again, we find ourselves returning to the interoperability and fragmentation problem of the modular expansion. We’ll keep it real, there is nothing innovative of building hundreds of siloed execution environments. Even if you value sovereignty as much as the [...]

Dive into Astria’s Shared Sequencer and Modular Architecture With A Focus On Business Logic X (Twitter) | YouTube | Spotify | gmodular: After our episode with Tarun Chitra about value accrual in the modular stack, as well as thinking about it deeper we’ve came to our own conclusions. Josh Bowen, ex-Celestia team, and now founder of Astria blew [...]
