Since a full node needs to process the entire block chain from the beginning and it keeps getting bigger this requires more computing resources over time. Does it seem more likely in the near future that this will continue to be processed on a general purpose CPU or will the computation be hardware accelerated through specialized hardware ? Will the computational complexity outpace CPU improvements ? Is hardware acceleration possible for this task?
