#248 Uri Klarman: bloXroute - Layer-0 Scaling with Akamai for Blockchains

Until now, proposals to improve blockchain scalability have addressed the problem in two ways. One seeks to increase efficiency by optimizing the blockchain or improving the consensus algorithm. The other comes in the forms of layer-2 solutions such as payment channels or side chains. However, none have addressed the core bottleneck to scalability: TCP/IP network limitations.

DD Episode #2 - Checks And Balances
