The co-founder of Tezos speaks about Smart Rollups, the roadmap to one million TPS and what's next for Tezos.
11:15 - 11:30 CET
In 2022 the core Tezos development teams announced plans for a series of upgrades that would bring various new features called 'rollups', taking the blockchain's scalability to new levels. One of the stated goals was increasing Tezos' throughput to 1 million transactions per second (TPS). This session will explain why this is a game changer and demononstrate how it's done.
11:30 - 12:00 CET
Data availability solutions on layer 1 blockchains are essential for ensuring the accessibility and integrity of data stored on the blockchain. These solutions address the challenge of efficiently distributing and reaching a consensus for making those data available to all participants in the network. This session will talk about the latest developments and solutions to improve data availability on Tezos.
