From Hashgraph to a Family of Atomic Broadcast Algorithms

12/12/2019 ∙ by Trafim Lasy, et al. ∙ 0

The goal of this article is to extend the ideas concerning Bracha-Toueg asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerant consensus algorithm and Baird's Hashgraph consensus. We propose a family of atomic broadcast algorithms, which Hashgraph consensus is closely related to. We also do preliminary comparative algorithm speed analysis which shows that some members of the family seriously outperform Hashgraph consensus. These algorithms can also be readily used as a base of proof-of-stake consensuses. In appendix we provide an extension of Hashgraph gossip protocol, which efficiently handles byzantine fault information exchange between nodes.
