Innovation knows no bounds as Stackr embarks on a mission to empower developers and simplify web3 app development.

Building for the blockchain has historically been a daunting endeavor, a path less traveled due to its intricate complexities. But Stackr is here to rewrite that narrative. In an exhilarating $5.5M seed round led by Archetype, Stackr is paving the way for the next wave of web3 builders.

Web3, the decentralized frontier, beckons with endless possibilities. Stackr, a comprehensive and modular framework, offers developers the passport to this uncharted territory. It reimagines web3 application development, presenting a simpler and more intuitive path for both new teams and established enterprises with web2 applications.

With Stackr, these apps are transformed into "Micro-rollups," a revolutionary concept that ushers in a new era of logic-specificity. Rollups, which execute off-chain and then post data to a blockchain, are key to overcoming scalability issues. But Stackr takes it a step further with App-specific rollups, providing customized and optimized execution environments for specific use cases.

Micro-rollups are the driving force behind Stackr's vision. They separate execution and proof, allowing for flexibility and focus on throughput. These execution environments, or MRUs, are the heart of the micro-rollup concept, expanding the realm of web3 applications by catering to developers' existing knowledge and expertise.

Rather than relying on a virtual machine, MRUs can employ custom logic written in almost any programming language, eliminating the traditional hurdles of web3 app development.

Stackr’s micro-rollups achieve "Sufficient Decentralization," offering a perfect blend of accessibility and user-friendliness. They can cater to a variety of applications, from enhancing security for centralized projects to providing trusted input inside Ethereum.

Much like conventional web2 apps, micro-rollups can be self-hosted on various cloud infrastructures. Stackr's toolkit spans languages such as JavaScript, Python, Golang, Rust, C#, and more, ensuring accessibility for developers from all backgrounds.

With a focus on expanding the toolkit, building plugins, and collaborating with the community, Stackr aims to redefine the boundaries of web3 development.

Stackr is breaking down the barriers between web2 and web3, making decentralized app development accessible to all. The journey has just begun, but the destination is a more inclusive and innovative web3 ecosystem.
