Ava & BloxRoute
SF Blockchain Week post #10
Emin Gun Sirer talks about both BloxRoute and Avalanche as layer 0 and layer 1 scaling solutions.
The work presented is existing and covers both layer 0 networking and layer 1 consensus. The claim that Avalanche is the third major consensus mechanism of the last 4–5 decades in a major statement. Will be very interesting to watch the development of this project.
