“Usability, scalability and stabilization are essential to an operating system like a general purpose blockchain platform. Non-developers must be able to seamlessly interact with and use blockchain applications, while scalability is fundamental to the future growth of the blockchain ecosystem. The stabilization features we have introduced are key to ensuring resources can be utilized effectively across the network.”
