I see this terminology everywhere in ethereum Wikis. What does it mean to be 'bounded'? Its a noob question I know.


1 Answer 1


I think 'bound' is another way of saying 'limit'. 'Limited' and 'bounded' are pretty much the same. The capability of a system is limited to within the bounds specified, so we could say it is bounded.

  • This answer is correct. I want to add that this term and its usage is not specific to Ethereum.
