IPC: Breakthrough Scaling with InterPlanetary Consensus
day-limit16th Nov
Hosted By

InterPlanetary Consensus (IPC) is a transformative blockchain architecture that enables planetary-scale performance by introducing the innovative concept of blockchains within blockchains. This pioneering approach creates infinitely scalable networks, forming dynamic tree networks of recursive blockchains, or "subnets." IPC's mission is to bridge the performance and usability gap between Web2 and Web3, powering a decentralized planetary-scale economy with unmatched speed and functionality comparable to centralized systems.

⚡️ Verifying Filecoin retrievals at scale

Speaker: Patrick Woodhead, Lab Lead @ Protocol Labs. Spark is a trustless retrieval sampling protocol for Filecoin.
