Welcome to the Cerberus Infographic Series, where we take an in-depth look at how Cerberus, Radix’s unique consensus protocol, will provide the unlimited, frictionless scalability required to bring Decentralized Finance (DeFi) to billions of people.
Today’s chapter is Chapter III:
We explain that the entire Radix ledger will be composed of millions upon millions of substates. Each substate represents a change to the ledger and, once committed, is final.
We explore how substates are created in transactions, which are always cross-shard.
We also explain that in every transaction two types of substate must be created: “shut down” and “bring up”.
Here’s the running order:
Chapter III: Substate; Substate and Transactions
Chapter IV: Shard Allocation; Transactions
