I’ll make this post a community wiki, people can update this and https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/Alternative-blockchains,-randomness,-economics,-and-other-research-topics.
The wiki includes (with more details for each in the wiki):
- PHANTOM and SPECTRE
RFC: SPECTRE and PHANTOM by Aviv Zohar and Yonatan Sompolinsky.
I just read these articles, I haven’t had time to read the papers yet.
I see parallels between the discussions we have had on DAG design and voting. Thanks @ChosunOne for suggesting to read this.
- added Dfinity, Truebit, PHANTOM and SPECTRE with some details on each
- added other blockchains, e.g. Cardano, Algorand, OmniLedger
- added Snowflake to Avalanche: A Novel Metastable Consensus Protocol Family for Cryptocurrencies
