Celestia’s genesis block, expected later this year, will start the first modular data availability network. With it will arrive TIA, the native asset of Celestia. Like in other permissionless protocols, TIA enables participation in network consensus and decentralised governance of network parameters and the community pool. But core to
It’s been a short while since we deployed Mamaki, the Celestia testnet. With a successful launch, we rolled out our alpha data availability API and introduced data availability sampling - a key ingredient in Celestia’s scalable architecture. In the meantime, we introduced sovereign rollups to the world -
Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the new Celestia “Mamaki” testnet! This marks the next step in our road towards Celestia mainnet - a modular blockchain network that decouples consensus from execution. We are one step closer to enabling anyone to easily deploy their own blockchain, without
We are excited to announce that we have successfully launched Celestia devnet! On a cold November day in Berlin, our engineers were huddled in a conference room clad in Celestia hoodies. Suddenly, they erupted into cheers of elation. On their computer terminal windows were the following messages: Terminal output from
Today we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve shipped our minimum viable product (MVP)—a data availability sampling light client. This marks the first major milestone in our roadmap to build a universal consensus network allowing anyone to deploy their own custom blockchain in minutes. TL;DRData availability sampling
We’re excited to announce that we are henceforth rebranding LazyLedger as Celestia! Names are important. A good name communicates vision and inspires a community to rally behind it. Although LazyLedger is catchy and succinctly captures the minimal nature of our protocol, we wanted a name with more mass appeal.
We’re happy to share that Celestia Labs (incorporated as Strange Loop Labs in Liechtenstein), has closed a $1.5m strategic seed fundraise. Celestia Labs is building Celestia, a pluggable consensus and data availability layer, to enable anyone to quickly deploy a decentralized blockchain without the overhead of bootstrapping a
One of the highlights of this year’s Devcon 5 was optimistic rollups, a new scaling solution that uses the Ethereum base chain for data availability and enforcement of a two-way bridge of assets, with execution happening off-chain on layer two. In addition to allowing for increased throughput and decreased
