SEDA’s Modular Data Layer Design Sets A New Web3 Standard

SEDA is the first modular data layer, built to develop a new standard for Web3 data transport, access, and configuration. Modular blockchains dominate the Web3 narrative, boasting improved flexibility, scalability, and developer efficiency. While many blockchains utilize modular designs for improved settlement, execution, or consensus, SEDA has built the chain-agnostic modular layer dedicated to data. The mainnet launch in Q1 this year signifies the beginning of SEDA empowering data queries of any data type from any source in Web3.

Modular Data Layers Drive Infinite And Horizontal Scalability

As mentioned in our introductory blog, ‘What is a modular data layer,’ modular blockchains can be considered Lego blocks joined together to create infinite blockchain stacks. SEDA, via its modular design, with 100% permissionless access and chain-agnostic nativity, allows developers to plug and play when integrating with the network. Unlike traditional Oracle infrastructure, developers do not have to apply for or prove sufficient network traffic before integration. Using the SEDA SDK, builders from any source across Web3 can initiate and self-manage their integration, ranging from near-instant connection for EVM chains to a few days for non-EVM networks. 100% permissionless, chain-agnostic designs are the foundations that result in a new era of data layer scalability.

Unlocking New Levels of Data Transport Efficiency

Separating core functions via modular layered architecture allows for improved streamlined operation on-chain, boosting network efficiency. Modular designs allow each layer of the stack to optimize independently. In turn, layers built for specific functions can focus on its dedicated output: the querying, computation, transportation, and configuration of data requests for SEDA. In comparison, a monolithic blockchain has to process each stage of the transaction journey while all apps on the monolithic chain compete for transaction settlement. On the SEDA network, data can flow freely from provider to protocol across one modular layer without native deployment, delivering the most efficient data transport layer.

Dedicated Data Layers Improve Developer Flexibility

If you played with Lego blocks as a child, you would be familiar with the infinite possibilities you could create with the same blocks. Modular data layers are a critical Lego block in a developer’s modular stack. As we see more and more modular blockchains built, developers will be able to start creating unique and infinite modular stacks to serve more and more niche outcomes. Chain-agnostic, permissionless data layers will be the standard for developers, mitigating any integration restrictions experienced with current technical infrastructure, resulting in developer-managed and developer-configured data feed deployments.
