Great article!

But I'm still confused by a few things.

What is the point of the archive node?

What happens when the archive node is projected to surpass 100 TB by early 2020?

If the fast full node is about 10% of an archived full node, again, what happens when say by 2020 that the archive node is over 100 TB?

And if the archive node is necessary to some degree to solidify the network, how does it affect the centralization aspect of things when say in 5 years that the archive node is over 5-10K TB?

Thanks in advance
