Sundae Labs Hydra Ledger-only Mode

Problem

Cardano developers need an affordable solution to maintain a Cardano ledger for transaction validation, essential for enabling development of more advanced protocols.

Solution

We propose a Hydra node upgrade to support a 'ledger-only' mode, disabling layer-1 and peer capabilities, enabling efficient ledger maintenance.
