Blockchain and BFT Design Choices: A Distributed Computing Perspective
Ittai Abraham

I will begin by surveying some of the design choices of blockchain technologies and BTF engines as viewed from the lens of the theory of distributed computing: synchrony vs asynchrony, active vs static adversaries, Proof-of-Work vs Proof-of-Stake and malicious vs game theoretic models. In the remaining time I will discuss some of the new emerging hybrid solutions and how they aim to achieve the best of what BFT and blockchain have to offer.
