Consensus algorithms enable network participants to agree on the contents of a blockchain in a distributed and trust-less manner.

I’ve listed in the past few months all of them at tokens-economy.gitbook.io/consensus/ and thought it will be cool also to produce an Infographics

THE Blockchain Consensus/Algorithm Map has been updated! 48 #Blockchain #Consensus and 86 algorithms in more than 3623 #cryptocurrencies and 520 dead coins consensus.tokens-economy.com

At the core of the Blockchain disruption are consensus algorithm:

Consensus algorithms enable network participants to agree on the contents of a blockchain in a distributed and trust-less manner.

And the consensus algorithm plays a crucial role in maintaining the safety and efficiency of blockchain. Using the right algorithm may bring a significant increase to the performance of blockchain application.

But do you know how much consensus type are out there? or where they are applied? my Consensus Map and Blockchain Consensus Encyclopedia is here to help you!

I’ve just added Holochain

What is a Dead Coin or Dead Token?

A token or coin that has been abandoned, scammed, website dead, no nodes, wallet issues, no social updates, low volume or developers have walked away from the project.

More and more web portal are providing insights on the number of projects and or coins that

Coinopsy goes into great details about the causes and is worth reading to learn how to recognize the signs BEFORE investing.

Another one worth mentioning is DeadCoins

Smart contracts are automated contracts. They are self-executing with specific instructions written on its code which get executed when certain conditions are made.

Anything that runs on a blockchain needs to be immutable and must have the ability to run through multiple nodes without compromising its integrity. As a result of which, smart contract functionality needs to have three things:

  • Being deterministic.
  • Terminable.
  • Isolated.

Comparing 40 smart contract platform is a tough exercise, you may want to start with a table… 40 lines and up to 50 columns later (2000 cells) it start to be difficult to compare items.

I built https://platform.tokens-economy.comto offer an encompassing and structured overview of the major smart contract platforms. A table rendering like is also now available at https://platform.tokens-economy.com/table.html

You can filter up to 40 smart contract platform using buttons and sliders!
