TOP

Status

  • Vote by Hash was implemented in version 15.2 of the Nano node software.

  • Development Progress can be tracked here


Summary

Currently, when representatives vote, they broadcast the full block in each vote. With the introduction of Vote by Hash, these votes will only include the block hash.

Full blocks contain 256 bytes + 64 bytes for the representative�s signature, when the block's hash is broadcast instead, votes use 32 bytes + 64 bytes for the signature.
