(PDF) Snowflake to Avalanche: A Novel Metastable Consensus Protocol Family for Cryptocurrencies
7 Conclusion
This paper introduced a new family of leaderless, metastable, and PoW-free BFT protocols. These pro- tocols do not incur quadratic message cost and can work without precise membership knowledge. They are lightweight, quiescent, and provide a strong safety guar- antee, though they achieve these properties by not guaran- teeing liveness for conflicting transactions. We have illus- trated how they can be used to implement a Bitcoin-like payment system, that achieves 1300tps in a geo-replicated setting.
