Talk:Consensus Process (voting pools)
In computer science anything based on consensus in a distributed network is an incredibly complicated thing to implement. There are some tools out there like zookeeper (never used it) which I understand can be used for this kind of thing.
Something to keep in mind is, that roughly speaking you cannot get consensus, (two generals problem etc), but you can get consensus with some degree of certainty.
Would there be any way where we could change this such that we do not need concensus?
Why do the peers have to agree on the addresses every 5 minutes?
