Darmstadt-Warsaw Research Seminar on Cryptography and Blockchains: Scaling Ethereum With Data Sharding

19.01.2022 11:40-12:40

Speaker: Dr. Dankrad Feist (Researcher at Ethereum Foundation) | Location: Online (Networking afterwards)

Prof. Sebastian Faust (TU Darmstadt)
Prof. Stefan Dziembowski (University of Warsaw)


Over the last few year, a new scaling paradigm for block chains has developed: Rollups (either optimistic or using validity proofs) can compress execution, but need on-chain data to be safe. Through the combination of data sharding and data availability sampling, data availability can be scaled in a secure and decentralized way.
