AMA Recap: Sparse Merkle Trees and the New State Model
In the previous research blog post "Sparse Merkle Trees and New State Model", we introduced one of the cornerstones of Lisk-interoperability: The state model of an interoperable chain. The blog post describes the concept of sparse Merkle trees, first introduced to the Lisk protocol in LIP 0039, and explores the state model, the state tree, and the new storage interface.
In order to understand what will change from a developer perspective when interoperability is implemented into the new SDK we published a blog post and also hosted a live AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Lisk.chat to give the community a chance to learn more about the topic of Sparse Merkle Trees and the New State Model. In this blog post, we recap the full AMA session and feature the questions asked by community members, as well as the answers of Alessandro Ricottone, Research Scientist.
