Scionic Merkle DAG Trees: Backwards-Compatible Integration with Nostr for Multimedia Hosting
"This paper introduces Scionic Merkle DAG Trees, a novel approach that integrates with the Nostr protocol to address the inefficiencies of Merkle DAG branches in decentralized storage networks."
- "The key innovation emerges from replacing the large parents in Merkle DAGs with Classic Merkle Trees, thereby achieving a logarithmic reduction in the size of each parent."
- "Additionally, by labeling leaves with numbers, the approach significantly simplifies the syncing process, allowing for requests of missing data through single integers."
- "This dual strategy reduces the size of the branches and the size of requests needed for data synchronization."
- "The result is a system that evolves efficient data retrieval while maintaining full backwards-compatibility with Nostr, facilitating multimedia hosting across its decentralized network."
