Dymension ELI5

Dymension is similar to a full-stack web application where users interact with RollApps (front-end), the Dymension Hub (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. Like any web application, each RollApp is fully customizable. You can build games, DeFi, NFT projects and much more!




The Dymension Hub 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).

Data Availability Networks play similar role to a databases in web applications, providing data as needed. Unlike traditional databases DA networks are decentralized and hold data for shorter periods.
