Aleph consensus protocol

Short Description of presentation

The performance of a blockchain is bound by a performance of its consensus protocol which is used to reach an agreement on the validity of the blocks. During the presentation, we will present the Aleph protocol which reaches the theoretical limits of the performance in an environment closely resembling the Internet and talk about Gomel – its implementation in Go.
