Fantom Technical Paper 3

Fantom is pleased to announce the release of our third technical paper, “ONLAY: Online Layering for scalable asynchronous BFT system”.

Now available on Cornell’s arXiv, this is the third technical paper from Fantom.

This paper describes a modified version of Lachesis that allows consensus to be achieved in a fast, deterministic, secure manner across any number of nodes in a DAG.

We are now working on incorporating this research into the go-lachesis codebase. If testing goes as planned, then Fantom will have developed a permissionless, dynamic, open source, and fast DAG-based platform with smart contract support, secured by Proof of Stake.
