  • PlatON Tips #18 | Governance mechanism

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 18 We are going to talk about the Governance mechanism Governance Overview Blockchain governance mechanism refers to a set of decision rules and action standards for stakeholders in the blockchain ecosystem to agree on decisions. The goal is to allow the decentralized network to iteratively develop over time. In the blockchain, some important technologies, such as consensus mechanism, scalability, security, etc., can be better solved by providing reasonable incentives through the governance mechanism. A complete blockchain governance mechanism should be the combined product of blockchain technology,…

  • PlatON Tips #17 | PlatON Consensus Solution-2

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 17 We are going to talk about the PlatON Consensus Solution CBFT Overview Based on the partially synchronous mesh communication model, CBFT proposed a three-phase consensus concurrent Byzantine fault tolerance protocol. The mesh communication model is more suitable for the weak network environment of the public network. The normal process of CBFT is similar to Hotstuff, and it is divided into prepare, pre-comit, commit, and decide stages. However, CBFT has also made key improvements: batch blocks can be proposed in a view window continuously, and the…

  • PlatON Tips #16 | PlatON Consensus Solution-1

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 16 We are going to talk about the PlatON Consensus Solution We propose a concurrent Byzantine fault tolerance protocol (CBFT) to solve the efficiency problem of partially synchronous networks. This article analyzes consensus protocols such as PBFT, Tendermint, and Hotstuff. With reference to their best practices, CBFT designed pipeline validation, batch production, and low-complexity view-change to improve consensus efficiency. Distributed network model According to the distributed system theory, the network model of the distributed system is divided into three categories: Synchronous network model: messages sent by nodes…

  • PlatON Tips #15 | Economic model -3

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 15 We are going to talk about the Economic model PPoS consensus PlatON adopts randomly selected nodes among the small-scale candidate nodes to participate in the BFT consensus, and makes a trade-off between the number of verified nodes and performance. Any LAT holder can pledge to participate in the validator (alternative validator candidate ), other LAT holders continue to vote through delegation, thereby maintaining a small-scale dynamic alternative validator candidate (alternative node) list, and then in this candidate list, several validators are randomly selected for block…

  • PlatON Tips #14 | Economic model -2

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 14 We are going to talk about the Economic model Published by LAT The token in the PlatON public blockchain is called LAT. LAT does not have a hard cap, and is divided into initial issuance and additional issuance. Initial release LAT’s initial issuance is distributed to the Founding Team, LatticeX Foundation, Research Fund, Ecosystem Fund, Developer Fund, Private Round and Reserve in a certain proportion. This is achieved by writing the allocated account and balance parameter information into the genesis block configuration, and introduce the…

  • PlatON Tips #13 | Economic model -1

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 13 We are going to talk about the Economic model PlatON’s economic design goals PlatON’s economic design has the following goals: First, choose PoS. We believe that PoW’s energy consumption is too high. Faced with real-world energy constraints, PoW’s market share cannot grow indefinitely. PlatON’s consensus algorithm is called PPoS (PlatON PoS). Second, reduce consensus costs. PPoS uses off-chain identity and credit mechanisms and programmatic arrangements, but reduces the reliance on them through the randomness introduced by VRF. This can effectively suppress bribery and collusion. Third,…

    Welcome to PlatON Tips-Episode 12 We are going to talk about the Scalable Privacy-Preserving Computing With the rapid growth of the Internet, the Internet giants represented by FAANG and BAT, by virtue of their technological monopoly status, have collected and stored enormous user data. And with the use of big data and AI, they are enjoying data monopoly and acquiring huge business benefits. Users not only fail to obtain data dividends, but also bear the risk of personal privacy being violated and personal data being abused. PlatON is committed to…
