Scaling Ethereum Storage via L2 and DA
Reusing Ethereum mainnet security and extending Ethereum scalability are the major goals of Ethereum L2 solutions. Most existing L2 solutions such as optimistic/ZK rollups focus on scaling Ethereum computation power, a.k.a., higher transactions per second. Meanwhile, with the popularity of dApps such as NFT/DeFi/etc, the demand for storing a large amount of data reusing Ethereum mainnet security has grown dramatically. In this talk, we will present EthStorage - an Ethereum L2 to scale the programmable storage to hundreds of Terabytes or even Petabytes with 1/100x to 1/1000x cost. We will explain the components of EthStorage and the storage payment model. Finally, we will present some prototypes of new applications on Ethereum such as vitalik's blog, decentralized dropbox, dynamic NFT, etc.
