Kadena and the Scalability Trilemma:

No matter how many Bitcoin clones appear the fundamental problem that prevents it from being scalable remains. At the bottom, we see a visualization of what two braided chains would look like.
This chart shows how many chains it would take to minimize the number of hops and minimize each chain's connections for multiple degrees and diameters.
This is the strategy for braiding ten chains visualized. Hashes are visualized as black lines and chains as blue circles. Here the degree is three because each chain is connected to three other chains via hashes, and the diameter is two because we can check the furthest chain after verifying the hashes of two chains.
This is Chainweb’s current 20 chain configuration visualized. Here the degree is three because each chain is still connected to three other chains via hashes. However, the diameter is now three because we can check the furthest chain after verifying the hashes of just three other chains.
