Take a look at what's happening across many of the differing ecosystems. If you do, you'll find one thing in common. They are all converging on the same path toward scaling - in
One of Celestia's main goals is to scale rollups by providing maximal data throughput. When scaling data throughput, light node requirements can become bloated by faster block times. Since a tradeoff exists between
Rollups provide a lot of nice properties around scaling, but they come with some critical trade-offs. When applications are split across multiple rollups, complexities arise around composability, liquidity, and user experience. Many of
Celestia is unique among L1 designs because it doesn’t have smart contract functionality. It instead opted for as simple a design as possible – eliminating execution in the process. The idea is that
Computing is at its simplest when there is a single machine. Your brother’s laptop can fail without making your phone crash. Distributed systems increase complexity by coordinating a set of connected machines.
