At a high level, many Layer 1 blockchains are monolithic: these blockchains 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, which users can deploy their own individual apps. With our infrastructure, any application can spin out as its own blockchain without increasing its security risk.
