Blockchain Data Growth, State Rent & the Nervos Approach

As the blockchain supports more users, the operating cost of a node grows, less nodes are run, and security is reduced. This is the classic ‘tragedy of the commons’: benefits to individuals reduce benefits to all. In this topic, we will discuss the problems caused by an ever-growing blockchain, currently proposed solutions in ETH 1.x and how this challenge addressed in Nervos.

7:10-7:30pm Blockchain Data Growth & State Rent
