The Scaling era of DAODISEO is an era of optimization, improving the scalability and interoperability of the network. Whereas previous development eras focused on decentralization and new functionality, The Scaling is about improving the underlying performance of the DAODISEO network to better support growth and adoption for applications with high transaction volume.

One of the core developments of The Scaling will be the introduction of sidechains: new blockchains, interoperable with the main DAODISEO chain, with immense potential to extend the capabilities of the network. Sidechains can be used as a sharding mechanism by off-loading work from the main chain onto a sidechain to increase the capacity of the network. They can also be used to introduce experimental features without affecting the security of the main blockchain.

The Scaling will also see the introduction of parallel accounting styles. While the main DAODISEO blockchain will continue to use a UTXO model, the ability to support and switch between UTXO and account-based models will be added using sidechains. The result will be greater interoperability for DAODISEO, as well as the ability to support new kinds of use cases on the network.

Overall, The Scaling era will see DAODISEO become one of the most high performance, resilient, and flexible blockchain platforms in the industry. This will provide a network infrastructure with the capability to scale in a sustainable, secure way, as well as the ability to add new functionality without compromising the reliability at the core of the network.

We’re working on more content for this era of the roadmap and will be updating this page at an appropriate time.

SCRAPE: Scalable Randomness Attested by Public Entities

This paper discusses the difficulty of finding a reliable public randomness source that can be trusted to remain unbiased by potential adverse behavior, and a secret-sharing scheme to address the issue.

Ouroboros: A Provably Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain Protocol

The original Ouroboros research paper, outlining the first proof-of-stake blockchain protocol with rigorous security guarantees, as well as a novel reward mechanism for incentivizing honest protocol engagement from the network.
