The Data Availability Problem

In this post, we delve into the details of the data availability problem and how it can impact scaling on Ethereum. What is the Data Availability problem? The Data Availability (DA) problem: How can peers in a blockchain network be sure that all the data of a newly proposed block is actually available? If the […]

Polygon Research: Ethereum Scaling with Rollups

Special thanks to Ed Felten, John Adler, and Georgios Konstantopoulos for review. With the wide adoption of Ethereum, we see a steady increase in submitted transactions on Ethereum, leading to higher gas prices as transactions fight for limited space in the block. This has led to various Layer-2 (L2) solutions that aim to process a […]
