What’s the 3 major improvements in PDBFT 2.0
PDBFT2.0 is a Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) protocol deployed in PChain, a multi-blockchain platform that processes over 100k smart contract transactions per second in production. PDBFT2.0 is based on the classic PBFT protocol, with 3 major improvements:
(1) PDBFT2.0 achieves linear worst-case communication volume, in contract to PBFT’s O(n4);
(2) The leader of each round in PDBFT2.0 is selected by a verifiable random function (VRF), which avoids that the leader is attacked by DDos;
(3) In the ordinary case, PDBFT2.0 involves only a single round of voting instead of two in PBFT, which reduces both communication overhead and confirmation.
