Lightning Network co-founder Tadge Dryja launches new Bitcoin expansion solution

According to CoinDesk, Lightning Network co-founder Tadge Dryja has released a new research paper outlining Utreexo, a bitcoin expansion solution he has been studying over the past year. This scheme allows network participants to use a smaller set of cryptographic credentials to verify the chain's consensus rule state in order to make the entire node of Bitcoin easier to run. Although it requires some computing resources to set up, it is the safest way to use Bitcoin and does not require an intermediary to verify that the transactions on the network are authentic.
