Dymension ELI5

Dymension is similar to a full-stack web application where users interact with RollApps (front-end), Dymension (back-end) acts as the coordinator for the ecosystem, and the data availability networks (database) provide a place to publicize data.

RollApps are the interactive applications for the Dymension network. You can build games, DeFi, NFT projects and much more!

Dymension plays a similar role to a server in a traditional web application. It orchestrates the network by handling requests from RollApps and facilitating communication among them (p.s. it also has an AMM to trade your favorite RollApp token).
