HotPoW: Finality from proof-of-work quorums

Venue: 
Online

Lecturer:
Patrik Keller
Researcher in the SEC group, University of Innsbruck

Abstract: 

He will present his work on HotPoW, a permissionless consensus protocol that improves over Bitcoin in two ways. First, with parallel proof-of-work we are able to record k-times more puzzle solutions per time without changing the assumptions on the underlying network. Second, appropriate choice of k enables final transaction confirmations after a practical amount of time.
