EigenLayer is pitched as a general-purpose marketplace for decentralized trust built on Ethereum. Essentially, introducing a method of internalizing modularity by redirecting trust within the Ethereum ecosystem.

Ethereum’s nature to forever grow increasingly complex is also its curse. This complexity is facilitated by its core development: smart contracts. This new, radical tool enabled developers to chart boldly into the realm of decentralized finance, where we’ve witnessed explosive growth and volatility. However, novel systems bring novel risks. Maximal/Miner Extractable Value (MEV), is one […]

About a decade into the blockchain industry’s development, early adopters realized that a hidden form of centralization was taking place. As a chain grew utilization, it became longer, which decreased the computational and bandwidth capacity.

Economic conditions, technology, and human behavior all vary over time, therefore methods to combat systemic risk must remain alterable as well. This development does not necessarily lead to a more effective and stable state, as […]

Jump to: “I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing” – Socrates  There has been a lot of palpable fervor lately surrounding L2 scaling solutions, and rightfully so. With Optimism releasing a governance token, demand for lower gas fees on ETH mainnet, and a litany of new ideas being produced at back-to-back […]
