Seminars details

  • Consensus algorithms for blockchain : from Bitcoin to Tezos
  • This seminar will explain how Tezos adapted and modified the consensus algorithm of Bitcoin to make it suitable for PoS, the limitations and problems this provoked and how those problems are solved in Tezos. We will also review the challenges ahead for consensus algorithm designers, in particular in terms of formal verification and practical implementation.
