Avalanche as a way to improve AE


#1

After collaboration with Emin Gun Sirer, I think you know about Avalanche (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXrrqtFlGow). What’s your opinion? Do you think it’s plausible way to improve AE in the future, let’s say 2+ years horizont? Is it even worth the effort? Thank’s for every opinion!

Regards

Martin

Our devs will get back to you on that.

Martin, I’ve watched the video and read parts of the White Paper.

“June 2017” - Reads the first slide at the beginning of the video. So I’m a little bit lost. Can someone verify if it was truly 2017 or 2018?

Also, argument with us, why would it be more valuable? Thanks, Julio from AE.

Hi Julio,
First I was thinking about this photo of Europe (28.6.2018 and 25.7.2018) and I am wondering: Do we need even more hot air from mining?

Less emotional
1.) It’s green ,no minig, no unnecessary wasting of energy and potentially less transaction fees(if any) and
2.) If you want to double spend, system is not guaranteed to reach consensus: badness on cheaters shoulders!
3.) System can reach consensus even in 50% byzantine actors environment
4.) TPS 1000 -10000
4.) Can potentially handle millions of nodes
5.) Probability of not reaching the consensus when it should is lower than that of CPU miscomputations

Disadvantage: No real world deployment, only tests were done

Second: I was thinking about how it could work with AE state channels! Great combo?!
