“We additionally plan to maneuver the ledger state to disk storage to ease the on-chain load…”
With that, Cardano’s “Hydra is ready to convey extra functionality within the mid-term.” In that context, Hoskinson had lately acknowledged,
“It’ll be capable of offload a considerable amount of the transaction site visitors that’s going to return from the entire apps which might be coming (quickly). As PAB comes on-line, Cardano goes to get hammered by an infinite quantity of site visitors. Hydra is a necessity for that…”
In the long run, there are prone to be extra updates across the Ouroboros protocol.
