The separation of powers and duties originally attributed to a central power or entity to a network or group of entities. In terms of blockchain technology, decentralization often results in the removal of the third party intermediary of transactions, such as banks and government bodies, and allows individual transaction participants to deal directly with each other with the help of individual independent validators who are part of the network of users.

Block's 5nm Bitcoin Mining Chip Prototype
Block has completed the prototype design for its 5nm Bitcoin mining chip, with plans to decentralize the supply of mining rigs through open-source technology. The company has purchased a large batch of ASIC chips from Intel to fast-track development of its proprietary 3nm chip.
Vitalik Buterin Proposes Zero-Knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machines on Ethereum Layer 1
Vitalik Buterin suggests implementing zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machines (zk-EVMs) on the Ethereum base layer to accelerate the verification process on the blockchain without compromising decentralization and security. The technology enables smart contract execution on the blockchain with ZK proofs. It would be the third type of Ethereum client, along with the consensus and execution clients. By integrating zk-EVMs at the Ethereum layer 1, Ethereum would remain decentralized and new clients could be developed, further decentralizing Ethereum at the base layer.
