DAG vs. Blockchain: They Are Not as Different as You Think.
Have you heard about DAG protocols? Some say that they are the next level for blockchain. But what are they and what's so different about them?
Aleph Zero’s Proof-of-Concept Released on GitHub
It’s been over a year since we started working on Aleph Zero. Our goal is to create a secure, scalable, decentralized Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) where free value transfers are achievable. We had a theory, and we had the mathematical proofs, but we also desired to confirm it in practice. We built a Python prototype that is: —Scalable:
Aleph Zero’s Peer-Reviewed Paper is Now Online
Just a couple of days ago we shared the news about our new protocol technical paper being peer-reviewed. Today, our awesome research team — Adam Gagol, Damian Lesniak, Damian Straszak, and Michal Swietek—published it on arXiv. Go ahead, check it out here! Here’s the abstract: The spectacular success of Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology in recent years
Aleph Protocol Got Peer-Reviewed
UPDATE: THE WHITEPAPER IS ONLINE HERE. Aleph protocol has been peer-reviewed and selected for publication in the proceedings of the Advances in Financial Technologies (AFT). It’s one of the top academic conferences in the distributed ledger space. Long story short — we’ve always recognized that our tech is awesome and now other people think so as well! Out
The Problem of Bribery in Voting. Can We Solve It?
Whenever voting is involved, one question is ubiquitous: how can we tell if the results have not been skewed due to bribing the voters? Democracy is a system where people vote for solving issues or to make governance decisions. In the simplest cases the majority wins, which has its own problems as we will describe
Recycling the Agreement: Distributed Consensus on DAGs
In recent years, we have witnessed a growing number of new-wave DAG-based cryptocurrencies. It started (most likely) with DAGCoin¹ in 2015, which was followed by many other projects, such as IOTA, Byteball, Hashgraph, Chainspace, PARSEC, Fantom, and, of course, Aleph. In this article, we will first share our view of why DAGs are receiving increased attention
