Your Role

  • Research ETH scaling technologies: rollups, zero knowledge proofs, fraud proofs, data availability, sequencers, etc. This includes but is not limited to:
    • Data availability - offchain data committee, restaking validators (e.g. EigenLayer), modular DA (Celestia)
    • Sequencer - decentralization through BFT consensus, Raft leader election committee
    • Fraud proofs - interactive fraud proof, offchain notary
