This document introduces XinFin DPoS 2.0, the proposed next generation
decentralized consensus engine for the XinFin XDC Network. Built upon the most
advanced BFT consensus protocol, this upgrade will empower the XDC Network with
military-grade security and performance while consuming extremely low
resources, and will be fully backwards-compatible in terms of APIs. It will
also pave the road to the future evolution of the XDC Network.
The core invention is the holistic integration of accountability and
forensics in blockchains: the ability to identify malicious actors with
cryptographic integrity directly from the blockchain records, incorporating the
latest peer-reviewed academic research with state of the art engineering
designs and implementation plans.
