04/13 - PAI Hybrid Consensus Updates
PAI Hybrid Consensus
PAI Hybrid Consensus is a BIG project. It’s been quietly underway for a long time, and we’re making good progress. Because Hybrid Consensus is an open-source project, you can always check the latest code commits on Project PAI’s GitHub and read the proposal here: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1902.02469.pdf
REMEMBER: PAI Hybrid Consensus is the initiative that’s key to fully decentralizing PAI Coin and realizing our collective vision.
Once launched, the current Proof-of-Work consensus mechanism that PAI Coin uses will be replaced by a Hybrid Proof-of-Work, Proof-of-Stake protocol.
