As of writing this the Blockchain is 406GB
Maybe this has been discussed before. But been reading over the size of the Blockchain and how people could either store or read the Blockchain while maintaining a certain level of decentralisation. I was thinking how the complete Blockchain for protection can be stored everywhere but not entirely everywhere. In silicon valley (TV series) the term data sharding is used and I have read how it’s actually used in databases….
Just to clarify on know nodes can work on hashed merkle trees to better manage storage and for checking, instead monitor the block headers.
But who should hold the “entire” block chain? Everyone!
Why not instead have sections of the Blockchain (1GB chunks) distributed. To be on the network you must store a chunk of the Blockchain as well as the most recent (1GB chunk). People may need to store more than one chunk if more nodes leave the network. Each chunk stored be stored on at least 3 seperate/different nodes (redundancy).
Does this make sense? Would this workThursday, September 22nd, 2022 at 10:51 #379805dlq84
1 TB SSD is $99. It’s a non-issue. If you still can’t afford that, there’s always pruning.
I’m not sure what problem you’re trying to solve.Thursday, September 22nd, 2022 at 10:53 #379806free_the_worlds
No it does not make sense. I use Bitcoin because I can verify all of the transactions myself and I don’t have to rely upon anyone else.Thursday, September 22nd, 2022 at 10:57 #379804ScamJustice
I think the decreasing cost of storage will outpace the increase in size of the Blockchain over time so it won’t be a problem for people to buy enough storage to contain the whole thingThursday, September 22nd, 2022 at 11:10 #379807escape1979uk
If anything, storage is another area of technology that will be driven forward because of BTC.
I wouldn’t worry.. storage is cheap and it will only get cheaper as time goes by.
