Syscoin Rollux Weekly Update 2024.02.16

Weekly Video: The Cost-Savings of Bitcoin DA (formerly PoDA)

Syscoin Rollux have pioneered the best data availability solution in the industry. With cost-savings for DEX swaps currently being ~12,000 times cheaper than Ethereum, and ~2,000 times cheaper than future transactions on ETH once they have implemented EIP-4844 to cut down on costs, Bitcoin DA makes this future improvement proposal obsolete before it ever gets off the ground. And that’s just regarding costs, never mind the increased decentralization, security, and scalability Bitcoin DA also offers. With zkDA, any rollup on any chain can gain these benefits by introducing Syscoin into their modular architecture. Syscoin & Rollux are paving the way to the future where all roads lead to Bitcoin.

Scaling New Heights: Syscoin's Hash Rate Hits Record Peak

Syscoin's journey to a new all-time high (ATH) in hash rate is a testament to the growing confidence among miners in its robust network. Remarkably, 60% of Bitcoin's total hash rate is now dedicated to merge-mining Syscoin ($SYS), highlighting an unprecedented level of integration and security. With the hash rate reaching 354 PH/S, Syscoin and, by effect, Rollux are setting a new standard for decentralized network performance and reliability. This milestone not only underscores the technical prowess of Syscoin but also its increasing appeal in the crypto mining community.

Syscoin's Modular Transformation: A New Era of Blockchain Efficiency

Syscoin, originally celebrated for its decentralized marketplace, has embarked on a revolutionary journey since 2014, evolving into a beacon of modularity in the blockchain space. This strategic pivot towards a modular architecture signifies a departure from the constraints of monolithic blockchains, aiming to harmonize security, scalability, and decentralization without compromise. By segmenting its operations into distinct layers, Syscoin introduces an innovative framework that promises to redefine blockchain efficiency, particularly through its rollups and settlement/data availability layers.

The platform's embrace of modularity, highlighted by its integration with rollups for enhanced transaction throughput and its robust security measures backed by merge-mining with Bitcoin, positions Syscoin as a formidable alternative to Ethereum for hosting rollups. With its network supported by approximately 2,700 live sentry nodes and secured by advanced technologies like chainlocks, Syscoin not only champions decentralization but also sets new standards for blockchain security and scalability. As Syscoin continues to evolve, its commitment to a decentralized, secure, and scalable blockchain ecosystem offers a glimpse into the future of blockchain technology—a future that's modular, efficient, and ripe for exploration.

Sidhu highlighted Syscoin's robustness against potential blockchain threats, emphasizing the network's chainlock finality mechanism. This feature ensures Syscoin's uninterrupted operation, even amidst hypothetical attacks on Bitcoin, showcasing the platform's anti-fragility and green credentials through merged-mining.

In a call to action, Sidhu addressed Coinbase, reflecting on Syscoin's longstanding request for listing and the team's proactive efforts to integrate with Coinbase's Rosetta API. This dialogue not only showcases Syscoin's grassroots commitment and development prowess but also signals a strong demand for Syscoin in the U.S. market, awaiting collaboration from major players like Coinbase.

Sidhu also delved into the security comparisons between traditional oracle databases and Bitcoin, articulating the inherent global and decentralized advantages of Bitcoin's UTXO database over centralized solutions. This perspective reinforces the value proposition of blockchain technology as a foundation for a global financial system, free from centralized policies.
