DIGITAL ASSET WHITEPAPER
Decentralization, Scalability, or Security: Pick two. In brief, the Trilemma refers to the fact that networks in general (and distributed systems in particular) suffer from internal trust issues, proportionate to their size: The larger the size of any network, the greater the degrees of separation between its members and therefore the lower the level of trust.
