In this episode of CoinGeek Backstage, Becky Liggero caught up with nChain CTO and chair of the Bitcoin SV Technical Standards Committee Steve Shadders, behind the scenes at the CoinGeek Conference in Zurich.
At CoinGeek Zurich conference, attention was paid to the many data applications, but without technical standards, utility decreases for developers and for platform users.
On a day which saw the Demo-Gods’ smile upon him, Steve Shadders was able to demonstrate a 4-cluster Teranode process over 50,000 txn/s before the latency delay rose above 100ms.
The future is all about Teranode, the multi-threaded implementation of the Bitcoin protocol aimed at enterprise and which has unlimited capacity to scale, according to Steve Shadders.
Day 2 of the Bitcoin SV DevCon 2021 picked up from the high energy and enthusiasm that the first day had ended on.
With this new version, resource-hungry applications like CryptoFights should be able to make their complete debut with no practical limits, and the Bitcoin ecosystem should begin to see some very big blocks.
The event laid out the Technical Standards Committee’s proposed roadmap, before inviting input from stakeholders keen to help shape the future direction of the Bitcoin SV ecosystem.
Headlining the Dynastic update to the Bitcoin SV Node software is improved support for long chains of unconfirmed transactions, with the ancestor and CPFP default limit extended to 1,000.
