Ethereum Foundation researcher Dankrad Feist said during a Permissionless panel discussion in Austin, Texas, that the term data availability is confusing and the industry should consider data publishing as an alternative to the practice. .
Data availability refers to the fact that blockchain can work faster when the function of storing data is handled separately from the work of processing and confirming transactions, and the data can then be independently verified or downloaded when the user needs it.
It is reported that Ethereum developers are developing a blockchain data storage solution called Danksharding, named after Feist.
Feist holds a PhD in theoretical physics and applied mathematics from the University of Cambridge, according to his LinkedIn page.
