‘Layer 2’ Blockchain Tech Is an Even Bigger Deal Than You Think
The rise of solutions like the lightning network suggests crypto can have its cake and eat it too. Transactional scaling may just be the icing.
A new ethereum scaling solution called Monoplasma was announced today by blockchain data platform Streamr.
The narrative that ethereum can't scale is being actively disproved in production environments on a daily basis.
The Plasma Group reformed as Optimism and is working to make ethereum's calling card, smart contracts, work above the base layer.
A new approach to storing bitcoin's "state" could help significantly reduce storage requirements for users of the cryptocurrency.
As work on ethereum's plasma scaling solution proceeds, some developers are hailing a form of cryptography used by zcash as an alternative.
