Scalability is likely that the biggest obstacle to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers. Last week, a team of ex-blockchain developers emerged from stealth mode with a unique solution: remove the block from the blockchain.

Enter Constellation. We are joined today by CTO Wyatt Meldman-Floch and Zac Russell the Head of Marketing. 

This team knows the problems of legacy blockchain protocols first hand. Upon experiencing the congestion of the Ethereum blockchain during a previous attempt to build a DApp, they pivoted to build, from the ground up, a platform protocol that relies on a horizontally scalable directed acyclic graph (DAG).

Not only does the Constellation team predict the realization of a transaction throughput several thousand times faster than most blockchains, but they believe they can achieve such speeds without the use of the plutocratic proof-of-stake mechanisms.

Visit Constellationlabs.io where you can learn more about the following:

  • Why scalability is the key to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers

  • The reasons why legacy blockchain networks will not be able to upgrade sufficiently

  • The dangers of blockchain plutocracy and the need to make nodes accessible to the layman
