Jason Burns for Substratum:
Hi guys, I’m here to drop a quick video update for today to talk about how Substratum is speeding up blockchain content delivery with machine learning. Now, as most of you know from being involved in crypto, the blockchain is an intriguing decentralized approach to content storage with many benefits. However, the one area blockchain is weak, and thus one of its biggest problems is network latency.
什么是“区块链内容交付”？ 区块链不是“分散内容存储的方法”。 区块链是一种分散的方法，通过不可变的分类账记录保存，存储组件作为可追溯性和安全性的权衡。 网络延迟只是衡量在两个网络节点之间发送数据所需时间。 它不会使区块链变得“弱”，因为只有当你的区块链项目过于激烈才吸引用户时才会出现问题。
So, why does blockchain have latency? Good question. The same feature that makes the blockchain so powerful is the feature that slows it down. The data that servers deliver, in this case the web content, needs to be verified by other nodes on the blockchain before it’s served to the end user. That involves more queries and responses, and those add up to significant amounts of time from an initial query to the final response, in some cases, servers need to communicate with servers across the world for authentication before reporting and responding to the end user.
这是一个彻头彻尾的谎言。 Substratum的网络层使用标准的TCP / IP和加密技术，并且不使用区块链。 Web内容不是“由其他节点验证” – 这只是一个糟糕的主意。 Substratum利用这个视频向ICO投资者宣传，向他们展示区块链的辉煌力量，以及如何利用它来验证网络内容，从而创建一个“自由和公平的互联网”。 实际上，Substratum使用的唯一区块链是以太坊的ERC-20协议来创建SUB，该公司的筹款工具和货币化货币。
Our goal is to eliminate every barrier to widespread adoption of blockchain technology and high latency is one of the major barriers we’re addressing. Our solution uses machine learning or artificial intelligence to optimize server response times by incorporating geo-location data into our querying process. Our blockchain system will cut latency by working with only those nodes closest to the end user.
