Data Availability Layer

Data Availability Layer#

The Data-Availability Layer (or DAL) is a software component of Octez which allows users to publish data outside of the Tezos Layer 1 blocks, with no compromises on decentralization principles. Its primary use case today is to scale the data bandwidth of smart rollups, but other applications could be envisioned in the future.

The following pages provide an overview of the DAL and cover its different aspects and features.
