Ethereum Researcher Announces CBC Casper Draft Paper

Ethereum Foundation researcher Vlad Zamfir took to Twitter on 4 November to announce the draft paper: Introducing the ‘Minimal CBC Casper’ Family of Consensus Protocol

The draft paper was made by Vlad Zamfir, Nate Rush, Aditya Asgaonkar, and Georgios Piliouras to give interested readers a clear-cut and basic understanding of the proof of asynchronous Byzantine-fault-tolerant safety CBC Casper.

Correct-by-Construction (CBC) Casper is a different protocol from the Friendly Finality Gadget Casper of Vitalik Buterin.

What is CBC Casper?

The paper opens with an overview of what CBC Casper is:

CBC Casper is a family of ‘correct-by-construction’ consensus protocols that share the same proof of asynchronous, Byzantine fault tolerant consensus safety. We describe this family of protocols by defining their protocol states and protocol state transitions, and then we provide a proof of Byzantine fault tolerant consensus safety for the entire Minimal CBC Casper family of protocols

The CBC Casper draft paper

It also mentioned that the material is meant to be introductory and educational.

The paper demonstrated that members of a family of consensus protocols has asynchronous, Byzantine-fault-tolerant consensus safety.

‘Furthermore, we’ve given examples of members of the family of increasing complexity to demonstrate the power and flexibility of our approach to correct-by-construction consensus protocol design.’

For a deeper understanding of CBC Casper, the detailed draft paper can be read from Github in full.

Why a Russian Social Media Ban Would Hurt Twitter More Than Facebook

By CCN.com: Russia’s media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, plans to sue Facebook and Twitter for not complying with laws pertaining to the storage of Russian’s citizen’s data. There is speculation this could lead to Facebook and Twitter being banned in Russia. Such a ban might have a greater impact on Twitter than it would on Facebook.

Cornell Professor says “TRON is no operating system,” Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin Supports Criticism

Emin Gün Sirer, a professor at Cornell University and a famous influencer in the crypto and blockchain sphere, blasted TRON (TRX), Justin Sun’s blockchain project for claiming to be one of the “largest blockchain-based operating systems in the world.” Sirer made this known on his official Twitter account saying that TRON is not an Operating System (OS) while declaring his expertise in Operating Systems. I know Operating Systems. I have built Operating Systems. Tron is no Operating System. pic.twitter.com/JhRhodijKl — Emin Gün Sirer (@el33th4xor) January 21, 2019 Aside from saying that Tron is not an operating system, Prof Sirer also gave what he called “blockchain Rule #73,” which states that “anything billed as a ‘blockchain operating system’ is an embarrassing mess.” It is not surprising to see that the Cornell Professor is knowledgeable about OS as Sirer is famous for his brilliant contributions on technological topics such as P2P systems, computer programming, and operating systems. Confirming his claims of developing Operating systems, Sirer is the brain behind  SPIN kernel, an Operating System that he developed as a graduate student. Vitalik Buterin’s Contributions Replying to Sirer’s Blockchain rule, Ethereum’s co-founder, Vitalik Buterin tweeted a question with an answer to the Professor saying, “But what about legitimate blockchain operating systems like $AVA and $SUB? (I *think* that’s how one of the more recent twitter shilling tricks works…) The trick is to throw your coin into a list of other coins that you know the recipients of your shilling already approve of and get them to associate your coin as “one of the pack”. Also the dollar signs. The darned {{deity}}-awful dollar signs…” It did not also come as a surprise to see 24-year old Buterin, joining forces with Professor Sirer to criticize TRON since it is a known fact that Buterin is no fan of Sun and his project. In fact, Buterin and Sun are known for criticizing each other’s project. In December last year, Tron founder threw a big one at Buterin stating that the developers at Ethereum and Consensys are suffering layoffs and they should apply for jobs at TRON as they will be happily welcomed. Meanwhile, TRON TRX is the most significant gainer among the top 10 cryptocurrencies. TRX is recording more than 6% over the last 24 hours while Ethereum ETH is down by 0.98% at press time. Both coins have a market cap of $12,334,799,679 and $1,680,618,988 respectively.
