Launching a blockchain to be as easy as deploying a smart contract

Developers and communities will be able to deploy their own sovereign, custom-made blockchains at the “click of a button” says Celestia co-founder Ismail Khoffi. 

Speaking with Cointelegraph at Korean Blockchain Week 2022 last week, Khoffi said that the project’s vision is to decouple the consensus and application execution layers to unlock new possibilities for decentralized app builders. Celesita is basically a stripped back minimalist layer one blockchain that offers users the infrastructure that makes it easy to deploy their own blockchain, or layer two rollup.

in the future, we’ll all be able to have our own blockchains.

and it represents one of the biggest social revolutions of our lifetimes.

here’s 10 ways it could change technology, finance, work, and entire political systems

“One of the goals of Celestia is to make deploying your own blockchain as easy as deploying a smart contract,” he explained, likening the project to Amazon Web Services where “you write your code and click a button, it’s deployed and people can start using it.”

In a similar way to how the new rollup-centric Ethereum vision separates the consensus and data availability layers from the execution layer, Celestia is smodularly-designed but with customizable features which offers users the freedom to choose their execution environments:

“In Celestia, there is no such thing as execution on the base layer, so it’s completely outsourced to a different layer. You can have a settlement layer, but as a specific specialized execution layer that only does settlement on top of Celestia, but is its own thing.”

Khoffi added that “communities can [then] choose which settlement layer they want to use, or they can launch their own settlement layer or launch their own sovereign roll up”.

Khoffi said that Celestia was launched on the idea that online communities want some sense of sovereignty, and that they like “the idea of launching their own […] blockchain” without needing to be “dependent on Ethereum’s governance…
