BlockFin: The leaderless, async, BFT consensus algorithm from Storecoin
It's a common belief that public blockchains can't be both scalable and decentralized -- they suffer from the scalability trilemma.
Our team at Storecoin has invented a leaderless, asynchronous, Byzantine Fault-Tolerant (BFT) consensus algorithm called BlockFin that solves for this.

How Storecoin solves for both scalability and decentralization without sharding, off-chain transactions, level 2, etc.

Storecoin’s leader-free, BFT consensus algorithm BlockFin, validates blocks in a pipelined process.

At launch, we expect 5,000+ transactions per second and for throughput to increase as transaction demand increases.

BlockFin is a two-tier network of Validator nodes and Messagenodes, each with specific roles, assemble and validate blocks using a cryptographically secure process.

Storecoin’s mission is to become zero-fee payment infrastructure for the global internet. The Dynamic Proof of Stake (DyPoS) consensus engine powering the Storecoin infrastructure is designed to process thousands of transactions per second. When transactions arrive continuously but at lower rates, the consensus engine is capable of handling the incoming transactions, but how does it behave when transactions come in bursts? When Storecoin is used as the payment platform by merchants and app developers, the transactions are likely to come in bursts from multiple sources. So, we need to characterize the behavior of the consensus engine under such circumstances.
