Why does ZooBC blockchain network need two types of blocks?


@iltoga @capodieci and @andy answer this question

The initial blockchain download (IBD) process is required for full nodes operators to guarantee they have the entire transaction history. Depending on your hardware and internet speeds, this process can take anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks. Here at Blockchain Zoo, we’ve developed a solution to cut the IBD time down to 10 minutes by leveraging a new way to use checkpoints. In this video, Roberto (Founder & CEO) and Stephano (Co-founder & Core Architect) describe our process of running two types of blocks in parallel to enable a faster initial blockchain download.
