Just getting my head around some of the concepts in Vitalik Buterin's Mauve paper.
There are a few terms for which I don't yet have a clear definitions. These include the terms below (shown with my present interpretation):
- Validator - a computer that confirms validity of all (or part) of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) state
- Epoch - a 100 hour window
- Shard - a distinct chunk of the whole EVM state (see also this)
- Dunkle - Proof of stake version of an uncle
I'm guessing these terms will eventually end up here, but, in the meantime, can anyone provide a glossary of terms for the mauve paper?
