After modularization: Exploring the optimization path of the bottom layer of the blockchain


After spending a lot of time in the past two weeks to understand the innovation points of the new public chain & new L2, and trying to find modularity, the next place where the bottom layer innovation of the public chain may appear is “splitting & optimization & reorganization” ” — is the first principle I have extracted from all these innovations, and it is the first principle that I think will guide the continuous optimization of the blockchain in the long run.


Even if it brings a lot of complexity to the whole framework, we should continue to “split & optimize”, the blockchain has not yet reached the time of “subtraction”

A&T View: Danksharding, Celestia, and the Blockchain Hierarchy


What is Segmentation & Optimization & Restructuring 

This concept stems from the “modular blockchain”,

But there are certain differences from the current mainstream modular definition:

The concept of modularity means splitting at least one of the three major blocks of the blockchain into relatively independent structures. For example, Celestia splits the storage layer and provides a general storage layer to support higher Efficiency & more autonomy;


Splitting & optimizing & reorganizing means that in any single block of the three major blocks, further “splitting” is performed according to the optimization requirements, and finally reorganized into a blockchain with a higher possibility, eg, at the computing layer, all Transactions are executed independently according to the classification.


The idea is well understood: let each structure perform the simplest possible computations to obtain the greatest efficiency gains for a single structure.

Ethereum – Danksharding

In the eighth AMA of the Ethereum Foundation R&D team, Justin made it clear that “Ethereum is becoming increasingly modular”

But you should also notice that the “modularity” in Justin’s mouth goes beyond the “modular…
