Quotes from Episode:

“When the block is sent in the blockchain system, instead of sending the original ,we utilize these shorter identifier. And hence for every transaction that is 500 bytes long, we send just four bytes.” [00:06:43]

“On Ethereum, we did some tests internally on the testnet and we are capable of pushing, I think, close to 1000 or so transactions per second” [00:10:06]

“Think of bloXroute as just like improving the existing peer-to-peer network without getting rid of the peer-to-peer network itself.” [00:19:02]
