One of the crucial scalability obstacles with public cryptocurrency blockchains is that their dimension expands linearly with the variety of deals. Fully grown blockchains such as Bitcoin and also Ethereum include >>170GB and also >> 1 TB of historic information specifically. New nodes signing up with these chains should download this information and also validate it in order to end up being a “” complete node”” The variety of complete nodes is a vital procedure of decentralization, and also problem ending up being a complete node equates right into future centralization.
In this episode, we are signed up with by the duo of Evan Shapiro and also Izaak Meckler, CEO and also CTO at O( 1) Labs specifically. O( 1) Labs is an introducing firm that utilizes zkSNARK innovation in order to create a cryptocurrency blockchain, called Coda, that fixes the blockchain dimension scalability traffic jam. New nodes signing up with the Coda network will certainly have the ability to trustlessly start up in under a min by confirming cryptographic evidence that vouch for the legitimacy of the existing chain. This innovation has excellent possible to allow decentralization, and also for one blockchain to be a light customer of one more blockchain.
Topics gone over in this episode:
- Scalability obstacles of existing cryptocurrencies
- Background on O( 1) Labs and also their goal declaration
- How Coda utilizes concise computational stability innovation (zkSNARKs) to allow additional decentralization of blockchains
- Snarky – a domain name details language for zkSNARK calculations
- Current state of Coda and also roadmap
