A Bit About Us

This startup builds high-performance, modular infrastructure to scale blockchains. They basically are building a blockchain eco system that will allow others to build out blockchain to their own application. Similar to Cosmos or Polkadot just a much faster version. Their backers include Polychain, Robot Ventures, Tribe Capital, Accel, and the Solana Foundation.

We make blockchains scale by separating the โ€œslowโ€ part of blockchains (consensus) from executing programs (execution) and storing block data (data availability). With our infrastructure, any application can spin out as its own blockchain without increasing its security risk.

Why join us?

Our full-time Business Development Representative will spearhead our go-to-market, develop novel strategies, and build partnerships with major organizations.

We are happy to hop on a call to talk through the project and share further materials. At a high level, the Solana blockchain is *monolithic* it attempts to do several things at once, including executing programs, storing data, and establishing the final block ordering. We break up these functions to create high-throughput *modular* rollups. We will enable users to deploy their apps as their own Solana VM โ€œapp rollups.โ€ Our Rust codebase is a fork of the Solana blockchain. Down the line, to implement the zero-knowledge settlement, we might need to make modifications to LLVM.
