Beside this, we’re continuing forward with our efforts to construct a new, lightweight, cheap, and secure database scheme utilizing a a sort of private chain architecture, as discussed in previous posts. This remains a complex transition, with several open questions on the fundamental design for us to tackle. As we wrap up other initiatives, this will become our primary focus as it lends itself well to future applications as well.
