Consensus Mechanism

    Categories: Blockchain

    The process of securely achieving agreement on the particular state of a network. It often relates to the validation of transactions being added to the ledger, with consensus having to be reached before the ledger is updated to ensure only legitimate transactions are recorded on the blockchain. Consensus mechanisms are decentralized, meaning that no single authority is responsible for changing the state of the network.
