“Solving the Blockchain Trilemma”

Speaker: David Tse, Thomas Kailath and Guanghan Xu Professor of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University

The blockchain trilemma is a conjecture which states that it is impossible to build a fully decentralized blockchain system whose security and transaction throughput both scale linearly with the number of nodes in the network. We provide a resolution to the conjecture.
