    Episode 113 - What is Restaking?

    Episode 113 - What is Restaking?

    Restaking is staking of already staked tokens. But how is the possible?
    If tokens are staked for one purpose — providing econoimic security for consensus of a network — they could be further staked to provide security to other networks or apps.
    The process of restaking works by overriding the withdrawal and slashing conditions of user’s staked tokens.
    Listeners are encouraged to also check out the Episode 22 where Proof of Stake and Staking are explained.

    Episode 112 - Modular Blockchains

    Episode 112 - Modular Blockchains

    Modular blockchains has been one of the buzz words in the last year. In this episode, let’s understand modularity in blockchains.
    In the beginning, consensus and execution were part of the same blockchain like Ethereum 1.0. Then execution was decoupled and put into rollups. Then came the need for storing rollup data in the L1. And then we got DA layers as separate networks.
    Now we have consensus on L1, execution on L2, and data on DA layers. This is how we have modularised the blockchains.
