3 min readJan 1, 2022

Dear Community Members,

Welcome to the 72nd QuarkChain Monthly Report (December 2021). We will post monthly reports including development progress, monthly news, and events at the end of each month. In the future, QuarkChain strives to do better. Let’s review what happened in the past month!

1) Development Progress

1.1 Updates

  • Develop a cross-chain bridge between QuarkChain and other chains;

2) Recent news

2.1 QuarkChain founder and CEO Dr. Zhou published a technical article on the state explosion problem.

The vigorous development of decentralized applications such as DeFi and GameFi has greatly increased the demand for high-performance blockchains with low transaction costs. However, a key challenge in building a high-performance blockchain is the explosion of storage.

With the steady growth of node chain data scale, the current Ethereum node data has reached ~9TB. Since one of the goals of a decentralized blockchain is to allow computers with common configurations to run nodes, it would be difficult to achieve the mandatory requirement of 9TB+ storage on computers with common configurations. This article will analyze how to optimize storage, lower the threshold for running nodes, allow more computers to participate, and ensure the decentralization of the network.
