ECBP-1100 Modified Exponential Subjective Scoring Presentation

ETC Labs Core, in consultancy with OpenRelay and ChainSafe, develop and propose a finality algorithm called MESS for Ethereum Classic that, if adopted by the honest majority, would raise chain state finality near-exponentially with negligible risk of network bifurcation.

  • Overview "Artificial Finality" and non-invasive 51-percent-protection
  • Quick explanation of the "MESS" protocol (ECIP-1100)
  • LIVE Demo on the MESS testnet using Geth
  • Community Q&A session

Motivation

A low hashrate has caused Ethereum Classic's consensus algorithms to yield inconvenient and undesirable finality rates. ECIP-1100 "MESS" offers a way to increase the finality rate without tampering with existing "hard" chain consensus functions or characteristics, and to do so with minimal negative side effects.

Q&A

Questions must be submitted to this issue comment thread or directly at ETC Discord.
