What is Scalability?

  • X scales if it performs equally well as it grows
  • Blockchains: Every full node has to process every block
  • Adding nodes does not help

Scalability in Ethereum

  • Casper: scale state space and transactions via sharding
  • Raiden: scale transactions via state channels
  • TrueBit: scale computations via interactive verification

Only sharding requires fork
