Scaling is hard.
Decentralized architectures are complicated.
So how do we scale decentralized architectures? How should we improve upon existing protocols to allow them to handle a large number of transactions, of users, while maintaining a certain level of decentralization?
We’ll try to get some answers to these questions by first looking at what we’re doing most of the time in centralized architectures, and trying to see if it fits the specifics of decentralized architectures. Then we’ll take a look at some of the options chosen by the most populars public blockchain protocols.
