An Overview and Wishlist for Rollup Escape Hatches

Duration: 00:00:00

Speaker: Jan Gorzny

Type: Lightning Talk


Event: Devcon 6

Date: Oct 2022

Escape hatches are meant to be a way to exit assets or state from a rollup in the hopefully unlikely event that sequencers are offline. In this talk, we review which projects have these hatches and what plans are publicly available for future rollups or versions of these rollups. We list some ideas that these, and other rollups, may implement or adopt in the future, for more robust and secure rollups. The suggestions will be rooted in our concern for security and the issues presented by bridges.


About the speakers


Jan Gorzny

I'm the Head of L2 Scaling at Quantstamp. I have been interested in scaling solutions since Lightning was discussed and the Plasma white paper was written. I'm particularly interested in making sure these systems are as secure as they are scalable, and I have looked over several such systems during my time at Quantstamp. I also have a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, where I studied graph algorithms. Other research interests include formal methods and complexity theory.
