High Rollers:

As you know, we’ve become quite the modular blockchain activists and have been focusing on modular rollups quite a bit recently. Today’s podcast is a deep dive into how Celestia’s Data Availability Sampling (DAS) is changing the way we think about onchain data publishing verification.

This modular approach allows for the customization of blockchains for specific use cases, aligning with the philosophy of the “internet of blockchains” and making it easy to launch modular rollups.

We’ll also delve into Celestia’s introduction of the innovative light node, which addresses the challenge of efficient data verification without requiring users to download large amounts of information. This approach aims to ensure end-user verifiability while accommodating the potential growth of the Celestia block size in the future.

As one of the pioneers of Modular Blockchains, COO Nick White explains his thesis on the above and what modularism, not maximalism means to him.

So, join us in uncovering Celestia’s modularity and innovative solutions to data verification are driving its unique position in the blockchain space, offering a new paradigm for building and customizing blockchains for diverse applications and use cases.
