Status

  • 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.

With old-style voting, votes are packaged in 1 block of 248 bytes with 104 bytes overhead for representative signing. With Vote by Hash enabled, votes can be packaged and broadcasted in groups of up to 12 hashes, with a total size of 384 bytes with 104 bytes overhead for much more efficient broadcasting.
