Enecuum Code Review of the Blockchain Of Tomorrow
Share this article
One MILLION transactions per second! Directed Acyclic Hypergraph! PoS PoA PoW! Yeah, this is starting to sound like an episode of Star Trek, not the Enecuum Code Review I’m supposed to do here, but they really up the hyperbole on this one.
What is this “blockchain of tomorrow?”
“Enecuum is an innovate decentralized platform for integrating blockchain into business processes”
The decentralization trilemma states, you can choose any 2 of decentralized, secure, and fast. So from the above picture, which one was sacrificed?
Very busy GitHub, Node looks the most active, so let’s jump in.
configs and app are just outlines, let’s jump into source.
Sharding and PoA look interesting.
Not much happening in Boot, or CLI
Lightclient, blockchain 101 kind of stuff.
Same with Node, good amount of code and effort, but just 101 stuff.
FileDB, storing data directly in file on disk, not seeing a data store here.
PoA was just networking bits. Let’s jump into the bit i’m really interested in!
Not sharding as a scaling solution, sharding as a data solution, my mistake.
Not seeing anything new here, or anything that isn’t being done by others, the big lure;
But that’s really just a gimmick, PoW is still doing the real work, PoA is just a mechanic to reward minerless mining.
Started very recently.
Enecuum Code Review Conclusion:
Ok amount of code, a bit of work has gone into this, but just nothing wow and very blockchain 101. It’s just standard code without anything exciting.
