May has been a productive and eventful month for the SEDA Network. We’ve got some major announcements coming your way, so be sure to keep an eye out — you definitely don’t want to miss it!
Here are some of our biggest accomplishments this month.
We hosted our first SEDA fireside chat
This marked the beginning of a regular series of conversations where we will talk about the state of the crypto industry. The interactive setting allowed for an open dialogue, fostering connections while delving into key topics, including meme tokens and ordinals, block congestion and pricing out users, Euro stablecoins and the state of adoption, the banking crisis and so much more.

We kicked off our monthly SEDA community calls
Our monthly SEDA community calls provide a platform for SEDA users and our team to connect, share insights, and discuss opportunities for collaboration. Be sure to tune into the next one for some exclusive alpha!
The SEDA team came together at our bi-annual offsite
Our globally distributed team came together in Germany for a few days of collaboration, discussions, and roadmapping. This was a great opportunity for our team to connect and reinforce our shared vision, as well as align on our priorities for the months ahead.
SEDA Engineering: May Update
As we reach the end of May 2023, it’s time to take a moment and look back at the significant progress we’ve made.
In our previous monthly report, we hinted at our exploration of alternative designs for the settlement layer. Our aim is to enhance scalability and performance, and we’re excited to share the progress we’ve made in this area.
Here’s a summary of our activities during the month:
Exploration & Proof-of-Concepts
We dedicated our efforts to gather knowledge about various projects and frameworks. Through proof-of-concepts and experimentation, we validated our assumptions and explored different blockchain alternatives. Our focus was on infrastructure, smart contract capabilities, available tooling and SDKs, and upgradeability.
Engaging in intense technical discussions, we addressed concerns and uncertainties. Our primary goal was to identify and draft the specifications necessary for the SEDA protocol. We covered topics such as entropy and its impact on our protocol, different consensus mechanisms, changes in bridging between chains, and delved into incentives and token dynamics.
This month, we had the opportunity to come together as a team. Our dedicated time allowed us to enhance communication and increase future productivity. The whiteboard sessions were particularly valuable, fostering a shared technical understanding of the protocol.
The team is buzzing with excitement about the changes ahead. We firmly believe that we are laying the foundations for the next-generation data layer, and the future of SEDA looks brighter than ever. Stay tuned for more details and updates coming your way soon!
