Mithril is a stake-based threshold signature scheme for Proof-of-stake protocols.
Mithril is designed to provide a certified snapshot of the chain’s state, which allows SPOs and developers more easily to verify the information and bootstrap the Cardano node without having to download or verify the whole chain.
Mithril now is at the final stage and will be opensourced after the conference (Consensus) somewhere in June.
