Current monolithic blockchain designs are cripplingly inefficient. We are bound by the trilemma where higher throughputs necessarily mean lower security and/or decentralization. Modular architectures that specialize and split into discrete execution layers (e.g. rollups, volitions), security/consensus layer, and data availability layers (e.g. data shards) bring 100x-10,000x greater efficiency to the…
