The Pragmatic Leviathan: Dealing with Potential Changes

One of the defining characteristics of the Leviathan system is its pragmatic approach to handling potential changes within the underlying L1 blockchain infrastructure. This adaptability is crucial, given the evolving nature of blockchain technologies and the potential for updates or modifications that could impact the system's operation.

Leviathan's architecture is designed with flexibility in mind, allowing it to accommodate changes in the L1 blockchain's protocol, transaction structure, or consensus mechanisms without compromising the integrity or efficiency of transaction processing.

The system's adaptability is underpinned by a set of heuristics that guide its operation in the face of potential changes. These heuristics allow Leviathan to dynamically adjust its transaction processing strategies, ensuring that it can continue to execute intents efficiently despite alterations in the blockchain environment. This might involve modifying the sequencing algorithm, adjusting the handling of time-sensitive transactions, or implementing new mechanisms for managing data availability and transaction dependencies.

Furthermore, the pragmatic Leviathan framework includes provisions for dealing with chain reverts, which can occur as a result of network forks, protocol upgrades, or other disruptive events. In such scenarios, Leviathan is equipped to reassess and, if necessary, resequence transactions to align with the new blockchain state, minimizing the impact on transaction continuity and user operations.
