As someone who connected FreeTON with Messari I am of the opinion that there should be clear comparison criteria for blockchains, such as

type of consensus
number of data shards for 1 GB bandwidth
number of data shards for 10 GB bandwidth
finality - practical
finality - paranoic
security guarantees for both finalities
maximum number of servers - for 1 and for 10 GB bandwidth
adding validators - how does that affect throughput?
collusion requirements to produce a corrupt block
throughput by design
throughput achieved
decentralised infrastructure
end to end decentralisation
data storage inside system

If those are included in criteria, I am in support.

Thank you


Looks interesting. How can we participate? We have a NFT aggregator and consensus platform, and we are working on move consensus data on chain- the free TON network. And would create games/insights on top subsequently. How can we participate in this contest? Does it count?

Thank you, Eugene for your feedback!

Messari provides the top research for crypto. This joint contest can help popularize Everscale.
I fully support it.

not much people take part in this thread, guess that number of contestants is small too

Now we are only discussing the rules of the contest, later we will do advertising (and Messari, I hope)
