How is a merkle tree with proofs better than just signing a bunch of transactions?

Hi I was in the webinar just now and I’m trying to figure out the advantage of using Merkle trees vs. signing transactions and getting the digest.

How is a merkle tree with proofs better than just signing a bunch of transactions from a verified account for lazy minting?

Hi, welcome! :wave:

Sorry, I am not sure what you mean.
For the Merkle trees, do you mean the transactions from the wallet account or the algorithm achieved by the contract.

I mean for the code represented here:

How is a merkle proof better than a signature proof? What does having leaf node proofs offer over signature proofs? I think it is some kind of multiple level option, but I don’t fully understand.
