Konstantin Kladko will discuss SKALE: SKALE is a modular framework that splits blockchain consensus (BC) under asynchronous networking model into a sequence of stages. It then applies provably secure algorithms at each stage, so that the entire BC becomes provably secure. This modular framework allows to construct a wide variety of BCs with different tradeoffs as well as re-interpret and analyze security some of the existing BCs such as Tendermint.
Konstantin will provide an intro into SKALE framework as well as the specific implementation of SKALE used by SKALE network. He will also discuss connection between BCs and Binary Consensus algorithms, as well as discuss construction of front-running-secure BCs
