Advancement of consensus protocols in recent years has enabled distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) to find its application and value in sectors beyond cryptocurrencies. Here we reviewed 66 known consensus protocols and classified them into philosophical and architectural categories, also providing a visual representation. As a case study, we focus on the public sector and highlighted potential protocols. We have also listed these protocols against basic features and sector preference in a… Expand

TLDR
The potential of DLTs and blockchain to combat fake news is explored, reviewing initiatives that are currently under development and identifying their main current challenges. Expand
A Blockchain Consensus Protocol Based on Dedicated Time-Memory-Data Trade-Off
TLDR
The proposed consensus technique is based on a puzzle where the problem of inverting one-way function is solved employing a dedicated Time-Memory-Data Trade-Off (TMD-TO) paradigm and the algorithms of the consensus protocol are proposed which employ certain unconstrained and constrained T MD-TO based inversions.

This paper introduces a new model for consensus called federated Byzantine agreement (FBA). FBA achieves robustness through quorum slices—individual trust decisions made by each node that togetherExpand
Consensus in the Age of Blockchains
TLDR
A systematic and comprehensive study of blockchain consensus protocols is conducted, developing a framework to evaluate their performance, security and design properties, and using it to systematize key themes in the protocol categories described above. Expand
Blockchain Consensus Protocols in the Wild
TLDR
The process of assessing and gaining confidence in the resilience of a consensus protocols exposed to faults and adversarial nodes is discussed, and the consensus protocols in some prominent permissioned blockchain platforms with respect to their fault models and resilience against attacks are reviewed.

TLDR
A comparative analysis of typical consensus algorithms and some of their contemporaries that are currently in use in modern blockchains is performed, focusing on the algorithmic steps taken, the scalability of the algorithm, the method the algorithm rewards validators for their time spent verifying blocks, and the security risks present within the algorithm.

PBFT vs Proof-of-Authority: Applying the CAP Theorem to Permissioned Blockchain
TLDR
The analysis advocates that PoA for per- missioned blockchains, deployed over the Internet with Byzantine nodes, do not provide adequate consistency guarantees for scenarios where data integrity is essential, and claims that PBFT can fit better such scenarios, despite a limited loss in terms of performance.

Recently, high demand and limited scalability have increased the average transaction times and fees in popular cryptocurrencies, yielding an unsatisfactory experience. Here we introduce Nano, aExpand
Proof of Luck: an Efficient Blockchain Consensus Protocol
TLDR
A proof of luck blockchain uses a TEE platform's random number generation to choose a consensus leader, which offers low-latency transaction validation, deterministic confirmation time, negligible energy consumption, and equitably distributed mining. Expand
In Search of an Understandable Consensus Algorithm
TLDR
Raft is a consensus algorithm for managing a replicated log that separates the key elements of consensus, such as leader election, log replication, and safety, and it enforces a stronger degree of coherency to reduce the number of states that must be considered. Expand
