Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin announced the latest results of working on an update designed to solve the scaling problem. According to him, this should provide additional mayakova network based on the PoS Protocol.
“This is a working version selection rules of the branch will hold the fragments and the main Ethereum chain, with a special occasional beacons, and the interval of the appearance of shards less than 10 seconds,” said Buterin.
In turn, the auxiliary circuit will randomly determine the verification node, and generate compressed packages of transactions. After that comes the last step — confirmation packet “page services”:
“The package may be formed by the verification node, to another node could generate another package on top of that, the compilation of transactions must be approved by at least four of the seven randomly selected trust services,” explained Buterin.
“Sollicitation service” are not separate entities, but are included in the pools Ethereum. In addition, a confirmation packet will be part of the consensus mechanism of the network:
“A confirmation in any shard gives “witness” double voice within the global cycle Casper FFG. Thus improving the scaling of Casper and at the same time decrease the minimum requirements for share ownership and completion time (probably the minimum Deposit will amount to 32 ETH, and completion time of about 6 minutes)”.
After some time mayakova chain will be part of the main. While the architecture resembles a triangle, consisting of beacons, the verification of nodes and “witnesses”; in this case, all these parts are connected to the main network.
In the future Ethereum wants to enter the quadratic scaling to increase the processing speed within the circuit. So, if the equipment will be replaced by twice more powerful, in theory, the maximum performance of the blockchain will grow four times.
Now, in fact, developed only a “skeleton” of the project. When will be launched, each of the planned 100 shards will be able to handle up to 1.4 million operations per day, or 1,000 transactions per second.
The solution to the problem of scaling is one of the priorities for developers. For Ethereum is not so much a question of participation in the “race” as a large obstacle to introducing the technology. Acne Buterin also recognizes performance limitations of the circuit; one from the April conference, he said that the network in its current state is not ready to meet the growing needs of the market.
