Cut-through, or transaction cut-through, is a technique for validating transactions that obviates nodes' need to validate intermediate transactions. The technique offers some scaling advantages to those protocols employing it, such as Grin or Beam, since nodes do not need a complete history of past UTXOs transactions for validation purposes, requiring only the most recent UTXOs.
