Flow Architecture Traditional blockchains force every node to store the entire state of the network and perform all the work associated with processing every transaction in the chain. Flow blockchain allows nodes to specialize into four “horizontal” roles, based on their financial stake and hardware capabilities (Collection, Consensus, Execution, and Verification). Analogous to modern CPU architectures, Flow pipelines work to each of these node types. This protocol design allows Flow to achieve high performance and low cost without compromising on decentralization or breaking up the network through sharding.
