Avail Raises $27M to Unify Web3 Ecosystems with its Trinity Roadmap

Avail, a blockchain infrastructure project that aims to unify ecosystems across the entirety of web3, has announced a $27 million seed round led by Founders Fund and Dragonfly, with participation from other notable VCs, including SevenX, Figment, Nomad Capital, and a number of angel investors.

The funding will help supercharge the development of the Avail trinity – a three phase roadmap that consists of Avail DA, Avail Nexus, and Avail Fusion Security. These components will provide scalable and secure data availability, cross-chain coordination, and additive security for a multitude of rollups and blockchains.

The Rollup-Centric Future

The proliferation of rollups throughout the ecosystem has opened the door for a rollup-centric future, where builders have access to multiple off-chain execution layers, rollup tooling is getting better and making development faster, and deploying an app-specific blockchain will be as easy as deploying a smart contract today.

The rapid development of multiple new app-specific and general purpose blockchains built with a modular stack is inevitable. However, this also raises the question of how to coordinate all of these amazing technologies together so end users can reap the rewards without the need to switch networks.

This is why it’s imperative to lay the groundwork for the unified future today by building a unification framework that unites the ecosystem while fostering independence, enabling teams to pursue their own development paths.

The Avail Trinity

Avail is laying a foundation for a fundamentally integrated blockchain future where separate ecosystems can implement their own technology and scaling solutions while remaining connected via a trust-minimized and secure coordination layer.

The Avail trinity is a three phase roadmap that consists of:

  • Avail DA: A state-of-the-art modular data availability layer built with validity proofs and data availability sampling (DAS) that provides abundant blobspace for rollup builders and a base layer for a multitude of rollups to form a thriving ecosystem.
  • Avail Nexus: A zero-knowledge proof based coordination rollup on Avail DA that acts as the verification hub which unifies a wide array of rollups, both inside and outside the Avail ecosystem, utilizing Avail DA as the root of trust. The aggregated proof will also be subsequently sent to Ethereum.
  • Avail Fusion Security: A security layer that takes the native assets of the most mature ecosystems, including BTC, ETH, and others — allowing them to contribute additional security to the Avail ecosystem.

The Avail trinity will enable a seamless and secure user experience across the web3 landscape, while preserving the autonomy and innovation of each individual ecosystem.

Avail is not just building a solution for the present, but a vision for the future. By providing a unification framework that unites the ecosystem while fostering independence, Avail is paving the way for a more interoperable, scalable, and secure web3.
