Charles talks about Mithril as a means to light client wallets.
My understanding of mithril is it takes a screenshot of sorts of upcoming blocks and by representing the blocks in a lighter manner for validation it can improve the network throughput.
So the reason this speeds up wallets is because it's less data to download.
I can understand how this helps for light client wallets but I understand less so how it helps increase network throughput. Is it that it allows for quicker validation of blocks because its less information to be passing around? At that point is it fair to say it doesn't speed up the network so much but instead would allow Cardano to speed up the network if they wanted to move to a more DAG style network design?
