Researchers propose a new algorithm for distributed ledger protocol

According to Cointelegraph, researchers have proposed a new algorithm for distributed ledgering protocols that reports that the algorithm can achieve security without consuming high power consumption of bitcoin. The algorithm "Scalable Byzantine Reliable Broadcast" was outlined in a paper first published in August this year and was presented at the International Distributed Computing Symposium (DISC 2019) in Budapest on October 16th. Introduced. The paper won the DISC 2019 Best Paper Award. It is reported that, apart from the previous Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) system, they designed the algorithm in a way that replaced the arbitration with random samples.
