Blockchain Don’t Scale
In the first video of this series watch Dan explain why blockchains don’t scale with his favorite whiteboard.
Directed Acyclic Graphs Don’t Scale Either
Moving on, Dan further explains why directed acyclic graphs don’t scale beyond a certain limit without centralization.
After establishing why blockchains and DAGs don’t scale, Dan gives an overview of the basic components of the Radix ledger and how nodes in the network learn about new events.
Proof of Transaction
In this video Dan dives deep into how Radix uses Lamport Time Stamps (logical clocks) to create a relative order of events.
Preventing Nodes from Lying
Continuing from the last video, Dan explains the use of Merkle trees as fraud proofs that prevent nodes from lying about order of events.
Preventing Sybil and Eclipse Attacks
Learn how Radix prevents common attack vectors like sybil or eclipse attacks by using a novel method for creating node Identities.
In the final video of this series learn how the Radix ledger propagates new events throughout the network as they happen.
