#Polysign is so secret that very little is known.

I believe I've uncovered information that will illuminate on the "What", just not the "How".

Read the following and see if you agree with my conclusion.
Here, @joelkatz discusses the improvements he would like to make to the XRPL, such as Decentralization, Security and Performance. He also says, further down, that he wants to improve Partition Tolerance.
It seems like he changes the subject, but has he?…
Decentralization, Security, and Performance aren't equal in blockchain. In order to improve 2 of those components, the 3rd component will suffer. This is known as the Blockchain Trilemma, or the Scalability Trilemma.…
To understand how to address the Trilemma, you must first solve the C.A.P. Theorem. Consistency, Availability and Partition Tolerance. Currently, developers have not found a solution that balances all 3 without sacrifice. This infograph illustrates where "X marks the spot"😉
Chris Larsen's t shirt sure looks similar
I believe Arthur Britto and David Schwartz solved the CAP Theorem allowing them to apply the solution to the Blockchain Trilemma. Notice the shape is the area of X in CAP.

Perhaps we will read journals that explain the "How".
