The Web of Dependent Trust

In some cases, the web of interconnection was so nebulous, it took four (4) years to unwind just one thirty-three (33) party derivative at a cost of several billion euro.

Consensus Ledger

Our research suggests a set of one-hundred (100) federated, validator nodes will be required to cryptographically agree from the side-chain upon the near-immediate finality of a leader commitment.


Large populations of transactional participants are best served by a production grade protocol that picks at random one of the given one-hundred (100) federated nodes to write the current block of transactions and to assemble the new height of the blockchain.

All other ninety-nine (99) nodes will then test the new height of the blockchain and when the veracity of the new height is confirmed by at least a consensus of fifty-one (51) federated nodes, the next block of transactions may be assigned.

In the event of a tie or fork in the underlying blockchain at similar height, the board of nine (9) foundational overseers will vote at a minimum five (5) to four (4) in favor of a roll back to either fork.

When all nodes are back to 100% agreement, a subsequent rebuild of the block-in-tie to the selected fork will then re-start the progression of the height of the blockchain.

Byzantine Fault Tolerance

At a Byzantine fault rate of three (3) per eleven (11) corresponding to a success rate of one-hundred (100) minus 27.28 = 72.72% …

Slightly less than a 3/4ths majority of responding nodes will be required to validate a transaction for inclusion within a block.

In addition, a board of nine (9) foundational overseers endowed with directional discretion …

In the event an unmitigated auto tie or fork in the underlying blockchain at similar heights does rarely occur …

Shall decide by a simple majority of 5:4 or greater which height of the two or more conflicting heights is selected to perpetuate the underlying blockchain.

Alt Forms O Consensus

As ASIC cores become more prevelant, secure instructions to the CPU can now invoke pure randomness.

Hence, the weight of the leader selection process diminishes.

Therefore, competition gunning for the first-to-market Bitcoin protocol will advance at market share expense to Bitcoin.

Proof O Work

Interior Strength

Each node in the blockchain will have been initially well vetted ( resources, trusted execution environment ) with the probability of any one concert of nodes amassing the computational power necessary to crack and alter the blockchain at any one given block in time to be nil.

It has been suggested that an increase in the population of validators will increase the robustness of the Medcoin™ consensus algorithm.

How far beyond nil does the probability of nefarious intervention have to traverse?

A federated group of one-hundred (100) validators will suffice.
