0/ @MetisDAO is a hyper-scalable rollup-based layer 2 solution built on Ethereum. But $METIS is not just your average optimistic rollup 🌿

A 🧵 on $METIS and why you should pay attention (0/29)👇

#L222 Image @MetisDAO 1/ But before we dive into @MetisDAO, let’s quickly take @optimismPBC as an example to see how $METIS tackles problems that other optimistic rollups face today

0/ @OasisProtocol is a modular blockchain network that separates execution from consensus by design. Oasis supports customized ParaTimes (rollups with custom VM implementation) & aims to be a shared security layer for rollups 🌀

A 🧵 on $ROSE and why it matters (0/23) 👇 @OasisProtocol 1/ @OasisProtocol is built on the @Cosmos SDK, uses Tendermint BFT consensus and natively separates execution (or computation) from consensus and has a two-layered architecture:

- Consensus Layer

- ParaTime Layer

0/ Polygon #Avail is a chain-agnostic, modular data availability blockchain built by @0xPolygon. Like @CelestiaOrg, it aims to provide rollups & L1s with a highly scalable DA & consensus layer ✨

A 🧵 on how #Polygon's specialized DA layer works & compares to Celestia (0/34) 👇 Image @0xPolygon @CelestiaOrg 1/ @0xPolygon has been stealth building Avail since 2020 & has announced the testnet for Q2 2022 in April:

0/ I have written a lot about #rollups & data availability lately. Thought it might be worth putting together a thread of threads with my rollup/DA posts 📚

Your ultimate guide to rollup scaling, data availability, L2 #airdrops & more ✨👇

#L222 🧵 (0/13) 1/ Rollups - An introduction to scaling $ETH on rollups:

0/ Rollups are a key technology in blockchain scaling, even beyond $ETH. #Cevmos for example enables the deployment of EVM rollups on top of a @EvmosOrg-based rollup leveraging @CelestiaOrg's modular data availability layer

Short 🧵 on the Cevmos stack & its purpose (0/11) ⚛️👇 @EvmosOrg @CelestiaOrg 1/ #Cevmos (short for Celestia/EVMos/CosmOS) is a modular stack for building EVM-based rollups that use #Celestia as a DA & consensus layer. The Cevmos stack will center around an optimized settlement chain for rollups, based on #Evmos

0/ One of the upcoming L1s I'm most excited about is @CelestiaOrg, a modular, chain-agnostic data availability & consensus layer that provides a highly scalable & decentralized DA solution to rollups & app-specific L1 chains✨

A mega-🧵 on why you should pay attention (0/39)👀👇 @CelestiaOrg 1/ While most blockchain ecosystems agree that the future is multi-chain, the way they envision a multi-chain world can differ heavily. Approaches that have started to gain traction over the past few months are #Ethereum (rollups), #Polkadot (parachains) & #Cosmos (zones)

0/ Data availability is the primary scaling bottleneck for $ETH-based rollup L2s and a hot topic at the frontier of blockchain scaling. But what is the data availability problem and how is it addressed?

A 🧵 about the DA problem and the current DA landscape (0/XX) Image 1/ The data availability problem refers to the question how peers in a blockchain network can be sure that all the data of a newly proposed block is available

0/ Until today, L2 AMM designs entailed moving the AMM to L2 in its entirety including liquidity, resulting in undesirable fragmentation of base layer liquidity

@StarkWareLtd's concept of a distributed AMM (dAMM) fixes this

A 🧵 on what dAMM is and how it works (0/15) ✨👇 Image @StarkWareLtd 1/ The concept of the distributed AMM (dAMM), is an L2-powered AMM design that allows liquidity to remain on L1, while users trade on L2

0/ Because they have important applications in privacy & scaling, let’s have a look at zero knowledge proof technologies like zkSNARKs, zkSTARKs and how projects like @MantaNetwork leverage zk-tech to enable private #DeFi or #PriFi 🥷

A mega-🧵 on zk stuff & $MANTA (0/27) 1/ Let’s start with the basics. A zero-knowledge proof of some statement must basically satisfy three properties…

0/ @RmrkApp introduces a Substrate-based NFT standard or rather a set of standards on $KSM which composes of five NFT lego primitives. Putting these legos together allows users to create #NFT systems of arbitrary complexity 👾🕊️

Mid-week 🧵on $RMRK (0/27) 👇 1/ Additionally, by leveraging this logic and @kusamanetwork’s multi-chain architecture, these NFTs are eternally liquid & forward compatible with other projects, while being seamlessly portable to other $KSM parachains

0/ Mega thread on why I think #privacy will be an increasingly important topic in the #crypto space and why I’m really bullish on some projects & their tech!🔒


Privacy (0/20) 🧵👇 1/ With blockchain & #crypto, a large part of the attraction of the technology is its promise of decentralization, fairness and transparency. However, with transparency comes a lack of privacy
