EOS – Infrastructure for Decentralized Application White Paper. EOS is trying to compete with Ethereum as a platform for Blockchain applications by focusing on scalability and speed for decentralized applications. It is based on Delegated Proof of Stake (DPOS) Consensus algorithm invented by Daniel Larimer (Co-founder of EOS). Video link to different consensus mechanisms by Andreas M. Antonopoulos here. EOS has

Tendermint – Blockchain applications in any programming language Tindermint provides interface for different types of blockchains including their own custom blockchain, using any programming language. Tendermint provides its own unique proof of stake consensus algorithm which it claims to be more fault tolerant than Bitcoin consensus algorithm.  It provides tools and services for the same. Also provides UI for managing different types

zk-SNARKs – Privacy for Blockchain

zk-SNARKs stands for Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge Proofs. If your in crypto space, you might have heard about “zk-SNARKs” . Details are either sketchy or explained in a very complex way. Even the white paper from Ethereum has complex explanation to be easily understandable. So it takes some time to wrap around this concept. FYI# – Scaling and Securing Ethereum Network   This blog post is little different. I am reviewing a very early white paper by Joseph Poon and Vitalik Buterin. Joseph is co-founder of Lightening Network and Vitalk is co-founder of Ethereum. The white paper was published on August 11, 2017. Link to whitepaper is here.This blog post assumes the knowledge of how Blocks in blockchain are mined
