Scalability matters because blockchains are unlikely to be mass-adopted and reach their full potential without providing a flawless user experience at scale. However, the scalability trilemma postulates you cannot have security, decentralization, and scaling at the same time. In an attempt to square the circle nevertheless, new-generation blockchains have been developed with a different architecture than legacy blockchains like Bitcoin or Ethereum.
