4 TB, 50 TB, 100 TB…

The EOS Blockchain is constantly growing bigger, and that seems concerning to many of its users. Bitcoin has a chain size of 200 GB while being around for more than a decade. Ethereum Blockchain, which was launched three and a half years ago, is at 140 GB.

If EOS-based dApps see mainstream adoption, the chain will grow exponentially. That will create many challenges that pertain to storage solutions.

In his latest tweet, he defended the EOS network by claiming that it’s completely normal for a global transaction ledger to require that amount of data. Shelling out $300 for an 8 TB hard drive every 16 months or so wouldn’t be a problem.
