This week, we're reading the original tendermint whitepaper: https://tendermint.com/static/docs/tendermint.pdf Tendermint is a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm.
The paper is thin on context, so you may also want to read this blog post: https://blog.cosmos.network/tendermint-explained-bringing-bft-based-pos-to-the-public-blockchain-domain-f22e274a0fdb
Read the paper beforehand. Bring your lunch, questions and comments to Crypto NYC in Tribeca, where we'll talk through it together.
All levels of experience are welcome. No coding required. We're here to learn from each other!
