Transitioning to a per-output model will avoid CPU overhead, lead to better predicable memory usage, use 10-20% less memory and this will result in re-indexing becoming much faster.
Allowing script validation to be skipped for ancestors of known-good blocks will lead to substantial performance increases.
Refactor code with focus on concurrency. Speed up block fetching several times.
Speeds up initial block download as UTXO lookups can be optimized, and there is no use for the mempool at that stage.
Increasing block propagation speed.
It is a more efficient algorithm than Elliptic Curve Digital Signatures. Schnorr signatures support “native multisig” which enables the aggregation of multiple signatures into a single one valid for the sum of the keys. /batch validation. It could reduce the use of storage & bandwidth by 25% or more.
Mast allows Viacoin transaction validation scripts to be stored in partially-hashed form and nodes to interact with the merkle tree. This enables complicated redemption conditions, improves privacy by hiding unexecuted branches & allows inclusion of non-consensus enforced data. MAST allows for complicated smart contracts to be created on the VIA blockchain without clogging it up.
Rootstock is a smart contract platform which has a two-way peg. The idea is to enable it to work with smart contracts. Rootstock runs a turing complete Virtual machine called Rootstock Virtual Machine (which is also compatible with Ethereum virtual machine!) and allows solidity compiled smart contracts to run.
~20x Speedup in creating a new wallet.
Very similar to ’Counterparty’ but there are some key differences. It does not issue an auxiliary coin (e.g Counterparty and Mastercoin). For creating tokens, viacoins itself need to be 'colored'.
Contains hardware acceleration for CRC on architectures supporting SSE 4.2. As a result, synchronization and block validation will be faster
