After reading the technical whitepaper, I noticed that the consensus algo is like EOS pretty much. Both chains use BFT to settle the transactions. EOS utilizes dPOS consensus. dPOS has two phases: a “pre-consensus” and the final settlement. The final settlement is made by BFT. It usually takes 200-300s to reach the consensus between 21 block producers. However with the “pre-consensus” layer in which the BPs sign the raw blocks in turn, can reach a block time as short as 0.5s. This trade-off between efficiency and security makes EOS very different from other blockchain.
I didn’t find the chapter describing the performance of the algorithm. Any ideas?
