Consensus protocols are the mechanisms used to ensure this immutability and irreversibility in a trustless distributed network. These protocols however are based on a percentage of peers in the network agreeing on the chain’s validity which does not guarantee data and chain accuracy and integrity, if the peers are malicious or faulty.
This research aims to investigate and subsequently develop an alternative that can provide this guarantee.
