. In eth, BNB transactions modify a global state, Binance and validity of a future transaction (as well as its effects) depend on that state which inherently introduces a serialization requirement… transactions may be valid in some order, but not in another order.
If you’re specifically talking about the problem of needing to download and verify an ever-increasing dataset when initially joining the network, I think that one of the solutions is having publicly verifiable commitments to history, and bootstrapping off those.
Having said that, sidechains have not yet been implemented into Bitcoin network as issues such as security and centralization still need to be addressed before we can start spending our bitcoins using sidechains.

The functions parseEther( etherString ) and formatEther( wei ) can be used to convert between string representations, which are displayed to or entered by the user and Big Number representations which can have mathematical operations handled safely.
Fellow trader and analyst Credible Crypto, meanwhile, laid down the requirements to be sure that this month's $17,600 lows would not be challenged. For him, a trip to the low $30,000 range would need to ensue.
It’s a common misunderstanding that PoW validity implies full validity, but the only reason that this assumption holds is because people are doing the full validation, and would reject work that miners create on an invalid block.
For example, there are only 100 cents in a single dollar. Most common currencies are broken down with very little granularity. The first problem many encounter when dealing with Ethereum is the concept of numbers. However, there are 10 18 wei in a single ether .
Sidechains are being developed first and foremost to address the issue of blockchain scalability but also to potentially add new functionalities to a blockchain, such as introducing smart contracts for the Bitcoin network, for example.
These are all things that people have bought in the past, driving them to absurd prices, not because they did anything useful or produced money or had social value, but solely because people thought they could sell them on to someone else for more money in the future.
￼Seems pretty clear to me. They could maybe get more money with a more sophisticated trading strategy but who cares? They’ll take their $9m and retire on a beach somewhere for the rest of their lives. They want to cash out their $9m before they miss their chance. That’s what I’d do if I had 30,000 BTC right now and I bet you would too. They don’t have the connections to sell off-market so they decided to sell the way they know and the way that’s guaranteed to work: a Bitstamp sell order below market. They’re not experienced with handling this amount of money because they’ve never been rich before; they just got lucky. An early adopter decided $300 is their breaking point.

Blockchain is simply a nifty software invention (which is open-source and free for anyone to use), whereas bitcoin is just one well-known way to use it. To answer why bitcoin has become so big, we need to separate the usefulness of the underlying technology called "blockchain" from the mania of people turning bitcoin into a big dumb lottery.
The "wall," which appears to have been instigated by a single Bitcoin owner or a group which they’re calling the "Bitcoin Whale," appeared just as the price began hovering around $300. The sheer number of bitcoins and the swiftness with which they were snapped up suggests a few interesting things.
Bitcoin (AKA Cancer-Pills) has become an investment bubble, with the complementary forces of human herd behavior, greed, fear of missing out, and a lack of understanding of past financial bubbles amplifying it.
What we do know is that the price is inching up but it’s not out of the woods yet. And, unless another whale surfaces, the price could continue fluctuate, continuing upset the bitcoin herds as their investments pop up and down like a whack-a-mole. At this point in the game we can’t know for sure which of the two strategies was being employed but unless we see an equal but opposite buy back to the same wallet in the next few days we’ll be able to tell just what happened. An alternative view of the move could suggest that the whale wanted to drive the price down by flooding the market, resulting in a crisis of market confidence, allowing them to purchase the coins at a lower price.
