About this Episode

In this episode, we talk to Ivan Shumkov and Samuel Westrich, developers of Dash Core Group (DCG) working on Tenderdash aka Dashevo, a fork of Tendermint, Core (BFT Consensus) in Go.

Dash has developed a consensus, which is a fork of Tendermint - Tenderdash. Tenderdash handles state transition ordering, block creation and network communications to the platform, while the Dash Platform Protocol ensures the consistency and integrity of the data itself.
