Questions of concern
- Validating nodes receive fees and, potentially, monetary expansion. Very similar to BTC and ETH node operators.
- RChain is faster because Rholang doesn't impose a single global transaction order like Ethereum and because we're using a better sharding approach than anyone else.
- The JVM is going to be part of our stack for the forseeable future. At the moment, Rholang runs in an interpreter. We have a VM project to build a concurrent VM that allows us to optimize compilations and it will be integrated as a JIT VM inside the existing Rholang interpreter.
