What can you build with Avail DA?

Integrating with Avail enhances transaction processing by keeping data off-chain while ensuring its availability and validity. Avail's role as an optimized blockchain for data availability is central to this adaptation, offering a robust and modular design for diverse use cases.

What can you do with Avail? Publish data. You can use Avail as a big bulletin board to publish information and ensure that it is included in the block and is available with the help of a proof.

This effectively becomes very useful when building a rollup or an appchain. You can easily use tools like Stackr, Rollkit, Polygon CDK, OP Stack, Arbitrum Orbit, Madara, etc. to build your own chain that uses Avail behind the scenes.
