January 12th - gm gm to another new year! We’ve already had a beautiful start with new interoperability horizons opening up for Cartesi-powered dApps - congrats to Fabio, Bruno and the team for successfully bringing Cartesi Rollups to Syscoin’s Rollux testnet!
Plus, the Technical Vision Council’s been busy voting through an integration with the Espresso Sequencer! Following numerous deployments (and an iconic rickroll) on Espresso Sequencer testnets, the new integration aims to explore the expanded dApp design space made possible by Cartesi + Espresso DA. In the medium term, this integration aims to provide valuable lessons for further protocol integrations with other DA layers like EigenDA, Celestia, and Syscoin, bringing Cartesi’s modular vision to life. Check out the original proposal and submit your own in the Technical Vision Forum!
And if that wasn’t enough, take a look at this demo from the Prototype Unit, which showcases how a Cartesi x Celestia combination unlocks data-intensive applications like verifiable video processing on a verifiable Linux VM:
