“First, as soon as DPoS consensus is live on the Elastos main chain, merged-mining will be open to the entirety of the general public. Along with the btc.com mining pool, all other mining pools and individual miners will have the opportunity to upgrade their BTC mining clients to begin merge-mining ELA in parallel to BTC. Secondly, it is anticipated that the hashpower of the Elastos blockchain will rise dramatically, thereby further securing the network. Thirdly, DPoS nodes add an additional layer of security in serving to provide Finality for solved blocks. “
Zhang then discusses some of the major pillars of Elastos: Carrier, Runtime, DID, and Hive. Each one of these elements ensures privacy, protection, and pure decentralization without Big Brother in the background. Carrier allows peer-to-peer communication through DIDs instead of normal IP addresses. The Runtime ensures a protected sandboxed environment in which DDoS attacks are largely infeasible. Hive is Elastos’ customized version of IPFS for true decentralized storage solutions. We have the complete package.
