    Right now it is believe that until we get to a 20 mb block vps’s should be fine at the current price master node operators make 3k a month so upgrading vps for each master node shouldn’t be an issue. Here is a link to info on the scaling plan. https://medium.com/@eduffield222/how-to-enabling-on-chain-scaling-2ffab5997f8b
    I think full block would be good we can show the network scaling and have a proof of concept to the world.

    The model allows large full blocks. It prevents garbage inside the blocks. I'm struggling with the title yet.

    Why don't we increase the block size to 20Mb immediately? This is a rhetorical question.

    People know in the subconscious level that if a block of this size is mined right now, it must be a flood attack. Then, the network is kept below its full potential as a kind of protection against flood attacks. The model would allow we increase the block size more quickly.
