How to contribute

  • Most of the consensus are created and developed by projects themselves, and require to copy or explain some part of their White-paper. But there is no copyright infringement intended from my side. Just a try to list all consensus algorithms.
  • Link to PDF is required. Open knowledge is mandatory. Papers where the PDF is not publicly and openly available for free will not be accepted.
  • Don’t add deck of slides, or document lacking an abstract, not a blog post, not a bitcoin forum post.
  • Conference or journal and year must be stated if available.
