RISE Coin New Consensus – Consecutive Missed Blocks

29 Dic 18

Hi everyone!

Probably not everyone know what RISE is.
Long story short: RISE is a powerful Delegated Proof of Stake blockchain.

The latest core version (1.3.x) introduced very interesting news to the ecosystem:

  • Productivity as ranking factor: missing blocks now changes your delegate vote weight!
  • Delegate banning: if you miss to forge 85 blocks in row, your delegate will be prevented to forge. (banned forever)
  • Active delegates pool modification: forging delegates pool increased from 101 to 199!
  • Fair vote weight (not currently used by RISE, but an improvement for future developments)

What – in my opinion – is very cool about this new consensus, it’s the Delegate banning!
That’s why I wanted to create a very simple webservice in order to highlight even better which are the delegates that are risking to get banned from the blockchain, causing their votes weight to be set “free”, and finally increasing the forging probability of the other active delegates!

Here’s you can find the website:
