On The Brink with Castle Island

Mar 21, 2022

Celestia Labs COO, Nick White, joins us on the show to kick off our modular blockchain mini-series. Celestia is the first modular blockchain network, which decouples consensus and data availability from execution and settlement. Celestia implements a novel design to unlock key properties such as scalability, interoperability, and sovereignty while preserving decentralization.

We cover:  

  • Why scaling and decentralization have historically been at odds
  • How Celestia creates a modular system to reimagine traditional monolithic blockchain architecture
  • Leveraging data availability sampling to unlock scalability
  • How Celestia intends to be the engine that powers sovereign communities
