With the release of Asynchronous Backing, a good performance increase is expected (lower block time, increased block weight).
Which further efforts are being undertaken with regards to Polkadot scalability?
From @alexander-theißen, I learned that:
- At the pallet-contracts layer, there's work done on: code merkelization, user space gas metering, using register based byte code for wasmi, maybe a switch to a jit compiler, speeding up validation and instrumentation.
- At the FRAME-level, there's work to reduce the weights of all kind of extrinsics
- On the protocol level there seems to be something like "nested parachains" being developed.
I'd love to learn more about the scalability efforts. Further links and resources would be much welcomed.
