While being open source is a good start, and a quality shared by other blockchain wallets, what’s perhaps equally, if not more important, is the level of functionality given to users before requiring them to rely on others for the state of the blockchain. The vast majority of users will have their wallets stored on devices that either cannot or simply do not operate as full nodes. This means that their wallet has only a limited view of the blockchain state. It is here that Topl’s UTxO ledger design comes into play as a distinct advantage. With the more common account-based ledger model found in blockchains like Ethereum and Solana, wallets without a full view of the network cannot directly verify the output or execution of any smart contract. Given that in these systems even simple token transfers are performed using smart contracts, ordinary users are effectively dependent on other parties operating full nodes to verify network activity and state for them.
