Fantom researchers propose breakthrough solution for smart contract testing
The new mechanism increases testing speed by 200% on single-threaded processors and minimizes storage requirements by 60%.
To date, testing a smart contract has involved using one of three impractical options: archive nodes, full nodes, or testnet. Each of these is limited by scalability/speed and high data storage overhead.
Fantom researchers from Yonsei University and the University of Sydney propose an off-the-chain testing environment built on a transaction “record and replay mechanism.” The recorder component of this solution captures substates, or snapshots of the blockchain containing only relevant environment and state parameters.
