High Rollers:

Today, we’re diving into the world of Avail with co-founder Prabal Banarjee, a ‘modular stack’ project that’s all about user verifiability and data availability. Avail is all about putting the power back into the hands of users, and when asked about value accrual in the modular stack, Prabal made sure to tell us it all comes back to the users.

Avail focuses on data availability and user verifiability, aiming to provide a more efficient and cost-effective solution compared to traditional monolithic blockchain models. Using data availability sampling, light clients, and proofs, Avail is able to cut the costs of onchain data storage and proving by an order of magnitude compared to Ethereum.

Oh baby baby, the Data Availability wars are HEATING UP.

In this pod with Prabal, we’ll explore the key technical features of data availability layers, and the impact which modular blockchains will have on our current onchain world as we know it.

So, if you’re ready to deepen your understanding of blockchain tech, join us as we uncover the real value of breaking apart the monolithic chain design and unlocking scale, low costs, and great UX with modularity.
