Research Report: Decentralizing Permissioned Blockchain with Delay Towers
This report, published 18 March 2022, looks at the Delay Towers mechanism that was pioneered and deployed in the 0L Network.
The article was co-authored by Shashank Motepalli and Hans-Arno Jocobsen of the University of Toronoto. We quote the original synopsis below:
Growing excitement around permissionless blockchains is uncovering its latent scalability concerns. Permissioned blockchains offer high transactional throughput and low latencies while compromising decentralization. In the quest for a decentralized, scalable blockchain fabric, i.e., to offer the scalability of permissioned blockchain in a permissionless setting, we present L4L to encourage decentralization over the permissioned Libra network without compromising its sustainability.…
