Hedera Technical Insights: Counting Votes - why a 2/3 threshold?

Jun 04, 2020Paul Madsen

Nodes in a hashgraph network apply a 2/3 threshold in the virtual voting procedure – as soon as more than this fraction of consistent votes (or vote stake) are counted on the fame of a particular witness, then that election is complete. So why 2/3 and not some other fraction? It turns out that requiring nodes count just over 2/3 votes is the best compromise between defending against two different types of attacks.

Exploring Tokenized Assets on Hedera Consensus Service: part 3

May 16, 2020Tim McHale and Greg Scullard

The beginning of the end, part 3 starts the focus on the code. We'll provide a Java demo application to help map an ERC-20-like example to an application network using Hedera Consensus Service.

Tokenized Pt2 001

Exploring Tokenized Assets on Hedera Consensus Service: part 2

May 16, 2020Tim McHale and Greg Scullard

Part 2 of the 4-part series looks at the more decentralized architecture models and options for managing a token using Hedera Consensus Service application networks. In this article, you'll learn more about their potential trade-offs before diving into the code.

Tokenized Pt1 001

Exploring Tokenized Assets on Hedera Consensus Service: part 1

May 16, 2020Tim McHale and Greg Scullard

Tokens are an exciting new way to manage assets. To date, they've mainly been created through the use of Solidity smart contracts. This 4-part blog series provides an early look at how we can start to achieve similar use cases with Hedera Consensus Service for improved speed and lower costs.
