How to Scale a Blockchain: Motivating the Ethereum Rollup-Centric Roadmap
10-12, 16:00–16:30 (America/Bogota), Talk 5

Scaling blockchains to support billions of users without compromising decentralization is one of the biggest remaining challenges in the crypto space. This talk will showcase why there is a fundamental scalability-dencentralization tradeoff for any monolithic chain, and how scalable rollups on top of decentralized settlement chains can overcome this tradeoff. What implications does this have for the future of Ethereum? Beginner friendly, with pictures!
