  • In this paper, we design a new blockchain Byzantine consensus protocol SCP where the throughput scales nearly linearly with the computation: the more computing power available, the more blocks selected per unit time. [...] Key Method We further design a mechanism to allow reaching consensus on blocks without broadcasting actual block data, while still enabling efficient block verification. We prove that our protocol is secure, efficient and applicable to several case studies. We conduct scalability experiments…Expand Abstract
