About The Webinar

Join us for an enlightening session where we bridge the gap between transactions and the cutting-edge Web 3.0, unlocking the potential of the execution layer in blockchain technology. Get ready to master the complexities and emerge empowered in the realm of blockchain execution.

Blockchain 201: The Execution Layer

Blockchain 201: The Execution Layer offers an advanced exploration of blockchain, starting with a recap of Blockchain 101. It dissects Swift and Bitcoin transactions, explains Proof of Work, and illustrates with a Tapestry Example. Key topics include Public Key Cryptography, the ‘Safety Deposit Box’ metaphor, and an overview of wallet types, from software like Electrum to hardware such as Ledger and Trezor.

Part 1: Understanding Web 2.0 Applications

Part 1 provides a comprehensive overview of the architecture and dynamics shaping the digital landscape. We delve into the Client-Server Model, highlighting the statelessness inherent in Web 2.0, where independent requests are processed without user state maintenance. Real-world examples, including social media platforms and e-commerce sites, illustrate the significance and impact of Web 2.0 applications, offering a clear understanding of their architectural foundations and operational principles.

Part 2: Transition to Web 3.0 and Ethereum DApps

Part 2 navigates the transformative shift in digital landscapes. We provide an insightful overview of Ethereum, emphasizing consensus beyond transaction states. Exploring the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), we introduce the concept of Smart Contracts as self-executing agreements with terms encoded in code. The discussion extends to the statefulness of Ethereum DApps, where the blockchain stores user data and application status. Delving into DApp components, we explore the roles of Smart Contracts in the back-end and User Interfaces in the front-end. Concrete examples, including Uniswap, AAVE, and THE DAO, showcase the practical applications of Ethereum’s capabilities in decentralized applications.

Part 3: L2’s Separating Execution from Settlement

In Part 3, we delve into advanced blockchain concepts such as Optimistic Rollups, with a focus on Optimism, Arbitrum, and Polygon. The discussion covers transaction batching for enhanced efficiency and scalability. Crucial security risks and considerations associated with these Layer 2 solutions are also addressed, providing insights into optimizing blockchain performance while maintaining robust security protocols.
