The history storage problem

Most blockchains don’t incentivize storage. They incentivize validators to participate honestly in consensus and assume that once non-consensus nodes have verified newly added blocks, they will partially or fully store those blocks.

A post big block paradigm

Big blocks have long been demonized as a sub-optimal solution to throughput constraints. They increase the barrier to entry for block production and decrease decentralization in the process. This is correct under the
