Just came across this project, Mina Protocol, which looks intriguing!

  • the entire blockchain is 22kb!!
  • every user acts a full node
  • layer one protocol
  • join as a block producer or snark producer
  • 100MB install of Mina to run your own node

The backers are interesting; Coinbase Ventures, Fred Ehrsam, Multicoin Capital, in particular.
