How Lava Network Aims to Solve The RPC Problem For 10,000 Rollups

The Rollup July 10, 2024, 4:33 PM
After Modular March, its been obvious to us to stay heads down building with a strong focus on modular blockchains and the projects leading the way for this sector. Today, we do a technical deep dive into the architecture of Lava Network's RPC network.

The spotlight on modularity continues.

After Modular March, its been obvious to us to stay heads down building with a strong focus on modular blockchains and the projects leading the way for this sector. Today, we do a technical deep dive into the architecture of Lava Network's RPC network.

Basically the issue at hand is its tough to scale RPCs in a secure manner, across dozens of chains.

We spoke to Lava Network's CTO, Gil Binder, about their chain-agnostic framework and tried to figure out where the real edge lies. Can Lava really scale to thousands of chains? Is the incentive system robust?

By introducing economic incentives for RPC providers and using decentralized enforcement mechanisms like slashing and "jailing" Gil explained that Lava ensures that data remains both accessible and reliable. We dug deep into the technicals to understand what makes up an RPC and why its very important for you to understand what is happening 'underneath' all your onchain transactions.

We learned, and we enjoyed. Hope you do as well!
