With the current size of the Ethereum blockchain being what it is and growth expected to hockey stick upwards, how is it possible to manage it, assuming Ethereum becomes hugely popular over the next 5, 10 , 20 years? I found a cryptic blog post written by Vitalik written in 2014 on the topic but there was no solution in that post.
What am I missing? Surely there is an elegant solution that I am simply unaware of. Or, does Lisk or something like it pose a serious threat to Ethereum based solely on its solution to blockchain bloat?
