All right, we are live now. We’re just going to make sure that all of our technical facilities are up and running. I’m going to do a quick check on Twitter to make sure I can hear me. Okay. Check. Check. Okay. And it looks like Twitter now does have video, which I didn’t realize. So you guys all get to see our lovely faces. So if you’ve joined us, thanks for joining us. Today we’re going to talk about Blobstream Starknet and the milestone that the dev community of Starknet, the open source ecosystem, along with some of the exploration team members have hit. It’s been an amazing project and amazing integration with both Herodotus and Celestia. It’s been an interesting architecture to come up with, and we could talk about some of the roadblocks and snags and how we’ve moved past them.

So Blobstream Starknet itself, it’s an implementation or a re-implementation of some of the Solidity code bases on Ethereum layer one. It’s a one-way messaging bridge from Celestia to Starknet. The original way that we had conceptualized coming about this, it was about the same time that Celestia had talked about migrating fully to Blobstream X, and I’ll let Diego talk a little bit about the difference between Blobstream X and Blobstream. And so we ended up going the route of using Herodotus. So to start today off, I’d like Diego to maybe give an overview of what a traditional Celestia Rollup looks like, what it needs to commit to, and then we can talk a bit about what’s been accomplished in Blobstream. So Diego?
