Examining Blockchain's Scaling Landscape
Too Long; Didn't ReadBlockchains face major scalability challenges. Projects are innovating with layer 2 scaling to move transactions off-chain, new consensus models like PoS, sharding to parallelize processing, and compression to reduce bloat. Case studies show 10-100x throughput gains. Tradeoffs exist between decentralization, security and speed. Multi-faceted solutions are still needed to fully scale decentralized systems for mainstream adoption.
