> I think if you could combine the tech of Kaspa and Monero somehow, that would be the ultimate electronic cash. Tangram is a project that came close to doing this. It was taking the privacy technology of Monero and a block DAG structure that allowed fast transactions. They got so far as to produce a functional but buggy alpha net. Unfortunately, the main developer has a very challenging personality. He alienated all of the other developers who are working with him, and he does not seem to be capable of producing the coin on his own.

**Part 4** > One thing you have to understand is that there isn't really such a thing as deterministic finality. That's a good point. Many blockchains arbitrarily set the criteria for finality. Just because they set it at 1 block doesn't mean it's more or less "final" than a network that sets it at more blocks. > Interestingly, a selfish mining attack is quite measurable. The attack requires the attacker to post two successive valid blocks at the exact same time. Afaik, no selfish mining attacks on Bitcoin were ever recorded. > Selfish mining attacks on Kaspa are extremely complicated and very unprofitable. Ah, what I meant is that the attacker would use a withholding attack, and then other honest miners would join in their efforts due to selfish mining. The attacker itself isn't doing the selfish mining. > "Accidental client bugs" are an extremely huge concern, it is very baffling that you would downplay them this much. Proof-of-stake typically has an extremely intricate structure that is very hard to solidify. Exploits are a huge concern, and a very reasonable criticism of PoS. Oh definitely. I actually brought this up last year with the Ethereum community as the event most likely to cause an existential crisis, and they downplayed it as being too unlikely for multiple clients to hit the same bug. In Ethereum, if finality is reverted, the signing validators are fully-slashed. In reality, mistake aren't statistically independent events. If one client makes a mistake, there's a higher chance that another client will make the same mistake because people tend to make the same mistakes. There are easy coding and design traps to fall into. Eventually, there will be 2+ clients composing of a staking majority that will make the same mistake, and it might not be caught on a testnet. This could end up in a messy bailout situation. > GHOSTDAG is not a DAG version of GHOST I thought they were pretty similar. What's the difference then? * Isn't GHOST just heaviest weight, but uncle blocks are included in the weight calculations? * Isn't GHOSTDAG just GHOST, but uncle blocks and their transactions are included in the chain?

> uses PHANTOM GHOSTDAG for consensus (a DAG variation of Ethereum's GHOST protocol) GHOSTDAG is not a DAG variation of GHOST, it is actually more accurate to describe it as a DAG variation of Bitcoin. Also, GHOST isn't Ethereum's. It was invented by Yonatan Sompolinsky, the same guy who invented GHOSTDAG. > Needs a very high number of confirmations for finality (1000+ confimrations, 100+ minutes?, this needs fact verification) It does not need a very high number of confirmations. Also 1000 confirmations would take about 17 minutes on mainnet, or 1.7 minutes on testnet. > has 1-3s average block times The average block time is 1 second on mainnet and 0.1 seconds on testnet11 > has very small blocks (usually 1-3 Tx per block) A Kaspa block can hold up to 300 transactions, we ran 3000TPS on testnet easily. > In general, PoW is less secure than PoS, but PoW has more censorship resistance and higher liveness than PoS. I would expect PoS DAGs like Nano and IOTA to be more secure but less resistant to liveness attacks than KASPA. But there are many design differences, so this is too simplified of a comparison. PoW is not less secure than PoS. > Kaspa does not natively support smart contracts or DeFi. It can emulate it off-chain in the same way than Ordinals and Inscriptions have emulated tokenization on Bitcoin. But that's nothing like true DeFi. "True DeFi" is having DApps that respond fast, it doesn't matter if it is achieved via native processing or via rollups, after the L2 is settled it has the same security as the L1, that's basically the entire point of settling. If Kaspa can do rollups that settle once every 10 seconds than it provides the same security as any native smart-contract, but much faster than most.

The HBAR hashgraph is cool and I appreciate that it’s built on a DAG structure. I would buy it but I really hate that it’s on a proof-of-stake consensus.

There's a lot of missing documentation for Kaspa, which makes it hard to research it. Half the pages on their Github (https://github.com/kaspanet/docs) are still Work in Progress, so I don't have a full picture of it. This is what I've found in my own research: Facts: * **Consensus**: * uses PoW for sybil resistance * uses PHANTOM GHOSTDAG for consensus (a DAG variation of Ethereum's GHOST protocol) * **Transactions**: * uses UTXOs for transaction type * does not support smart contracts * Needs a very high number of confirmations for finality (1000+ confimrations, 100+ minutes?, this needs fact verification) * Extremely cheap Tx fees, practically free * **Blocks** * is DAG DLT * has 1-3s average block times * has very small blocks (usually 1-3 Tx per block) * **Tokenomics** * has no premine * has a 28.7B supply cap, has monthly (1/12th halvings) effectively providing 1 halving per year * Other * There is a community building KRC-20 tokens, which are similar to JSON-format BRC-20 tokens, and nothing like smart-contract ERC-20 tokens. https://docs.kasplex.org/protocols/krc-20-tokens/basic-operation/deploy * Does not support DeFi * Founder is Yonatan Sompolinsky, who is responsible for inventing Ethereum's GHOST consensus protocol **Notes and Opinions**: * In general, DAGs are much faster and more efficient than blockchains, with the downside that they're more complex. Nodes need to put in more effort to make sure transactions are ordered without double-spends. * GHOST is more efficient than Bitcoin's version of PoW because it does not waste orphaned/stale blocks. This is important for DLTs with fast block times. * In general, PoW is less secure than PoS, but PoW has more censorship resistance and higher liveness than PoS. I would expect PoS DAGs like Nano and IOTA to be more secure but less resistant to liveness attacks than KASPA. * Kaspa does not natively support smart contracts or DeFi. It can emulate it off-chain in the same way than Ordinals and Inscriptions have emulated tokenization on Bitcoin. But that's nothing like true DeFi. * I'm not sure about how many confirmations is needed for probabilistic finality. Normally, this would be covered under documentation, but Kaspa doesn't have documentation on this. This needs to be determined by running through the complex math from its whitepaper with the current block times (1-3s). * I'm concerned about the lack of documentation and block explorers. There is one block explorer, and it's missing a lot of basic features. There is not a lot of community infrastructure for Kaspa. **Overall**, I would treat Kaspa as a much better version of Bitcoin (much faster block times, cheaper transaction fees, high throughput, much more efficient). But that's not much of a compliment since nearly EVERY blockchain is better than Bitcoin. Protocol-wise, GHOST provides similar security to Bitcoin's heaviest-weight. But that's about all it does: just basic transfers. It doesn't support smart contracts or DeFi while many other blockchains do. So I think this limits the growth potential for Kaspa.

The original Ethereum GHOST consensus protocol was designed by Yonatan Sompolinsky. It's a better version of PoW that does not waste stale blocks by including them in weight calculations. It benefits blockchains with faster blockchains. https://ethereum.org/en/whitepaper/#modified-ghost-implementation Kaspa's GHOSTDAG is the DAG version of it.

It is an alternative solution to blockchain. If you want to learn more about the basics of DAG, visit e.g. [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Directed_acyclic_graph). > > DAGs often brand themselves as feeless and while that is undoubtedly a positive thing, it also increases the risk of DAG networks being attacked. For example, NANO is one of the most popular cryptocurrencies that is based on DAG and it [suffers transaction spamming attacks](https://blog.nano.org/recent-dos-nano-network-attack-and-v21-3-fixes-97b9b7297f9) from time to time. > > To counter this problem, projects that use DAG often implement solutions that involve centralization, e.g. [central coordinators, pre-selected validators or “witness” nodes or completely private network systems](https://maxthake.medium.com/blockchain-vs-dag-technology-1a406e6c6242). And since centralization goes against one of the core principles of cryptocurrencies, this is considered by many as an unacceptable trade-off. > > Another problem with DAG is that it has not been battle-tested on a large scale yet. Unlike blockchain, that is already well established. There are probably only two cryptocurrencies that use DAG and that are known to an average crypto-enthusiast: NANO and IOTA.

#DAG Pro-Arguments Below is a DAG pro-argument written by DaddySkates. > Directed Acyclic Graph or in short DAG is an alternative to its far more widely recognized Blockchain brother. To put it simply and very brutally honest, it's the next level of Blockchain. > Directed Acyclic Graph is a type of an alternative data structure which is widely used in various industries from science to medical and tech to recognize and observe the relationship between designated variables and how these variables rely or impact each others. > > Data in DAG is directed because it can only move in 1 single direction and its acyclic or in other words the data cannot go backwards. Directed Acyclic Graph as the name itself suggests has no blocks and does not require any mining to extend its database. Every vertex in its structure represents a transaction. DAG is unlike blockchain, buildind each datablock on top of eachother. In DAG system POW or Proof of Work is only required when a transaction is submitted to a node, to ensure network isn’t getting spam attacked and to validate prior transactions. However this proof of work is an extremely small one and requires close to no energy. > > > DAG may be a pretty new player on the block but the advantages such as massively different speed, no mining requirement and 0 fees plus no scalability issues simply make it a real challenge for blockchain to overcome. ***** Would you like to learn more?

#Avalanche Pro-Arguments Below is a Avalanche pro-argument written by a deleted user. > Avalanche is a relatively-new (only 1.5 years old) multi-blockchain crypto project whose token, AVAX, shot up into the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap in just 1 year. It has since fallen a bit. > > It has 3 chains on its primary network (C-Chain, X-Chain, P-Chain) and many subnets. The C-Chain is the most-used chain and almost the only one that's used by exchanges. > > I have a separate summary of [Avalanche here](https://np.reddit.com/r/MPlankton/comments/ukjt2e/avalanche_research_summary/) that discusses the platform in more detail. > > This post only lists the PROs > > ##PROs > > * The C-Chain uses an account model for transactions and is EVM-compatible. So it's easy for devs to create apps that bridge between EVM-compatible networks. > * The C-Chain EVM has many optimizations which make it much more gas-efficient than Ethereum. Most smart contract transactions cost pennies on the Avalanche network. > > **Low Transaction Costs** > > * C-Chain basic transactions (e.g. transfers/swaps) currently [$.03-$.10](https://snowtrace.io/gastracker) after the Crabada DeFi game moved to its subnet. This is way cheaper than using Ethereum (both before and after The Merge). Like Ethereum, the C-Chain also spam-resistant due to variable transaction fees. When the network was 30% congested while Crabada was running on the C-Chain, transaction fees were still only between $0.30 to $1.5 to execute. > * X-Chain and P-Chain transaction fees are fixed at a low [0.001 AVAX](https://docs.avax.network/learn/platform-overview/transaction-fees/), which are currently $0.05 - $0.10 USD (Apr 2022). Both are spam-resistant because you'd need to spend over $1M USD / hour in transaction fees before they start seeing congestion. > * However, note that transaction fees are kept artificially low because validators are paid by staking rewards, which creates high inflation (over 10%) on the circulating supply. > > **High performance and speed** > > * **Extremely fast finality**: All 3 primary chains have an extremely-fast [1-2 second deterministic finality](https://docs.avax.network/build/tutorials/platform/integrate-exchange-with-avalanche/). Avalanche uses Snow, which is a fast BFT-like consensus protocol that uses a DAG structure for network gossip. Most other BFT-class blockchains have a moderately-slower 4-10s finality time. > * **Moderately-fast TPS**: > * **C-Chain**: Highest achieved TPS was [869](https://stats.avax.network/dashboard/c-chain-activity/) on the C-Chain, which accounts for over 99% of Avalanche transactions. This is already 50x higher than Ethereum's maximum TPS of ~16 TPS. The maximum TPS depends on the type of smart contracts it sees (300 bytes on average). Currently, the Avalanche C-Chain is only seeing [10-40 TPS](https://snowtrace.io/chart/tx) because it doesn't get that many transaction requests. These are mostly from the Crabada game that's going to move into its own subnet. > * **X-Chain**: This is often quoted to be the 4500 TPS network of Avalanche (though it's quite misleading because this chain gets very little usage compared to the C-Chain). The X-Chain uses UTXO transactions and does not support smart contracts, so it's best compared to the Bitcoin network. 4500 TPS is orders of magnitude faster than Bitcoin's 5-7 TPS. In ideal test situations (150 nodes, 10kb blocks), the X-Chain can get [up to 7000 TPS](https://assets.website-files.com/5d80307810123f5ffbb34d6e/6009805681b416f34dcae012_Avalanche%20Consensus%20Whitepaper.pdf). > * **P-Chain**: The P-Chain is very similar to the X-Chain. Its purpose is for governance, staking, validators, and subnet management. Its 4500 TPS limit is way more than it will ever need. > * **High uptime**: Avalanche's primary network has had no outages. Aside from a brief minting bug in Feb 2022, it has not experienced any noticeable congestion. > > **Supports Application-Specific sidechains: Subnets** > > In addition, Avalanche uses subnets to build application-specific blockchains that connect weakly to its ecosystem. > > * Subnets allows communities to create their own flexible sidechains that are loosely connected to the Avalanche's primary network. Subnets gain access to Avalanches infrastructure and framework, but not its security. They can have their own consensus model, decide the requirements for validators, be public or private, and have their own native token for transaction fees. > * Subnet validators must validate the Primary network, which in turns validates the 3 built-in networks. As the number of subnets grow, they will contribute to the overall security and decentralization of Avalanche's primary network (but not vice-versa). ***** Would you like to learn more?

First seach.. I remember these guys.. Rai Blocks been a minute, I think it was a DAG style ledger.. "RaiBlocks, now known as Nano, rebranded in 2018 and became involved in a hack that some say led to its failure. In 2018, hackers stole over 17 million Nano from the platform, and users were unable to access their assets. The victims filed a class-action lawsuit against Francesco Firano, the owner of BitGrail, who the Italian police alleged had committed fraud. In January 2019, the exchange was found to have failed to implement safeguards and report losses." Doesn't compare to Cardano.. Next system!

Congrats to the team on the release. This is a genuinely exciting development in crypto. I'm extremely excited to see something being released in crypto that isn't just some copycat project that sacrifices decentralization for more throughput. 2.0 comes with a novel approach to consensus on a DAG and tokenomics that ensure that all network participants have aligned incentives to minimize fees (feeless in most cases), maximize throughput & speed, and ensure the security of the network. The devs have every reason to be proud of this breakthrough.

It's the same thing in the end, just more complicated. Instead of transactions waiting in a mempool you just include them directly in some magic DAG and it needs to be sorted out later. It's like a on-chain mempool basically.

Hedera calls its architecture a hashgraph, which is a specific type of DAG, (Directed Acyclic Graph). There are plenty of DAGs like Nano, IOTA, Hedera, Kaspa. They are all incredibly fast and incredibly cheap compared to blockchains. The downside is that their architecture is more complex and requires validators to order their transactions as they arrive. Slightly different than the typical mempool. They also do not have true blocks, but they can have virtual or artificial blocks, which are just transactions packaged together over a period of time. Also not necessarily a bad thing.

There are other networks that use hashgraph architecture. Fantom is a prime example. Its a self proclaimed DAG, just like Hedera is.

#Hedera Pro-Arguments Below is a Hedera pro-argument written by cryotosensei. > > 1. Unlike its Layer 1 (L1s) counterparts that use a blockchain consensus mechanism, Hedera employs a hashgraph consensus called the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) that is built on a public ledger. Hence, the nodes on Hedera can communicate randomly between each other without any constraints, thereby creating a graph of transactions over time. This shortens the transaction speed to about three to five seconds, making it fast and nimble. > 2. Hedera is designed to be extremely secure, as can be illustrated by how it has attained the asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance (aBFT), which is the most rigorous security any consensus mechanism can provide. This makes it resilient against network attacks. Another factor that may set users’ minds at ease is that its network of nodes is governed by a worldwide coalition of prominent organisations like Google, IBM and DBS Bank (first and only bank in Southeast Asia). This ensures that the network is subjected to rigorous checks and balances. > 3. Hedera empowers developers to customise their applications and apply Understanding by Design principles. Its software development kit enables developers to integrate KYC and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) into their systems if they feel that these features are necessary. As such, Hedera apps can either be transparent and permissionless or private and permissioned. > 4. Because Hedera is fast, transparent and shares information equally, it is a useful tool to facilitate cross-border trade payments. In February 2021, Standard Bank Group pledged to partner Hedera Governing Council to establish the first Hedera network node in Africa. > > > > > References > > https://help.hedera.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000674097 > > https://chaindebrief.com/all-you-need-to-know-about-hedera-hba/ > > https://messari.io/article/hashing-it-out-with-hedera-hashgraph?utm_source=newsletter_top&utm_medium=organic_email&utm_campaign=hashing_it_out_with_hedera > > https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/standard-bank-group-establishes-africas-first-hedera-network-node-to-enable-much-needed-digitisation-of-cross-border-trade-processes-301234395.html > > https://hedera.com/blog/dbs-is-first-bank-in-southeast-asia-to-join-hedera-governing-council-and-run-network-node ***** Would you like to learn more?

#Fantom Pro-Arguments Below is a Fantom pro-argument written by FrogsDoBeCool. > # Fantom, its Background and Pro's > > Disclaimer: I have not owned or worked with the Fantom network in the past. This piece was made for people to introduce them to Fantom, and all the benefits it has on the surface, and foundationally. > > # Consensus, and the DAG > > * **Proof of Stake** > * Fantom runs the **proof of stake** consensus to keep the network running, compared to **proof of work** (which major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Monero, etc use). "[Proof of stake](https://blockworks.co/proof-of-work-vs-proof-of-stake-whats-the-difference/) systems are significantly more energy-efficient than proof-of-work operations..." It's also significantly easier for a person to make a node on a PoS network than a PoW network, usually, all you need is a laptop, and a certain amount of tokens. All of these are positives for Fantom, but diving deeper, Fantom uses a specific PoS consensus. > * The APY of proof of stake (the tokens you receive from holding your Fantom tokens in a wallet) is anywhere from 4% to 15%. Fantom has a system in place to prevent people from fear selling, this is [called locking](https://fantom.foundation/ftm-staking/#:~:text=Choose%20to%20lock%2Dup%20your,base%20rate%20%E2%80%93%204%25%20APY), you lock your fantom tokens in your wallet to receive more APY benefits. So if you lock up your Fantom for 14 days, you get 4% APY, but if you lock it up for 1 year, you get 15%. > * **Lachesis** > * According to the [Fantom Foundation](https://www.fantom.foundation/lachesis-consensus-algorithm/), "We created Lachesis to overcome the limitations of previous consensus algorithms. It is, in fact, the ideal option for applications that need high-throughput, fast finality, and bank-grade security". > * Blocks do not need to be confirmed for a transaction to finalize, there are systems in place to prevent malicious and false transactions, and there's no 'leader' system where a specific wallet or person confirms blocks or transactions. > * **The DAG** > * Lachesis runs on the DAG, a consensus that differs than the normal "blockchain". In a normal blockchain, block 1 directly goes to block 2, directly goes to block 3, etc. in a DAG, block 1 could connect with multiple blocks, like block 2, 3, 4, etc. A DAG must never circle around, so if block 10 is the latest block, it cannot go back and confirm block 1 again. > * But why the DAG? Fantom uses a DAG to increase the scale and speed of its transactions. Each "block" (a dag isn't a blockchain to say) acts semi-independently of each other to get faster confirms. > * Fantom can reach a [transaction finality](https://fantom.foundation/blog/tps-or-ttf-understanding-blockchain-speed/) of 1 second. So on average a transaction will be finalized in 1 second, this is different than what many other crypto people use to tell how fast a network is, that being TPS (transactions per second). the DAG that Fantom uses allows transactions to be finalized on the network significantly quicker than the block being confirmed. (it's important to note, smart contract transactions are significantly slower than just moving fantom tokens). > > # DEFI > > * **EVM** > * [The EVM is the Ethereum Virtual Machine](https://www.bitrates.com/guides/ethereum/what-is-the-unstoppable-world-computer#:~:text=The%20EVM%20is%20essential%20to,(i.e.)%20executing%20smart%20contracts), a machine that devs use to create dapps (Decentralized Applications), Fantom is EVM compatible, meaning you can port an ETH dapp onto the Fantom network without having to recreate the entire dapp from scratch. > * Incentives to build > * Most devs work on the ETH blockchain due to its popularity, but many also work for Fantom, why? for one, the EVM helps them port their dapps easily, and for another, money. [Over 370 million Fantom](https://www.benzinga.com/pressreleases/21/08/g22721821/fantom-announces-massive-incentive-program-to-reward-defi-developers) has been directed to help devs produce dapps > > # Governance > > * [Fantom has a unique governance system](https://fantom.foundation/blog/on-chain-governance-released/), for one, anyone can propose something for 100 Fantom. And voting costs about $0.00001 in transaction fees. > * Then for voting, a wallet holder can vote 0-4 instead of yes and no. 0 is total disagreement, 4 is complete agreement. Each proposal can have multiple options too to represent all points of view. > * All proposals are in templates for how much they change the network. > * A template 1 vote is a non-important vote, agreement levels must be 55% or more. > * A template 2 vote is also non-important but requires a bit more agreement, 60%. > * A template 3 vote will directly change the network, may be for updates, or changing the rewards rate for delegators. 90% of delegators must vote, and a 90% of them must agree > * A template 4 vote can deconstruct a solidity contract, basically used for changing penalties for if something happened. 90% of delegators must vote, but only 55% must agree. ***** Would you like to learn more?

Kaspa addresses the blockchain trilemma—balancing scalability, security, and decentralization—through its unique DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph) structure, making it highly suitable for electronic cash systems. Unlike traditional blockchains like Bitcoin, which prioritize security and decentralization often at the expense of scalability, Kaspa's DAG architecture enables simultaneous block additions. This increases transaction throughput dramatically while maintaining a decentralized network. The GHOSTDAG protocol further ensures that Kaspa achieves consensus quickly and securely, even in a high-throughput environment. Consequently, Kaspa offers the rapid transaction processing essential for everyday transactions, positioning it as an effective form of electronic cash. On the other hand, Bitcoin, with its robust security and widespread recognition, serves more naturally as a store of value, akin to digital gold. This distinction highlights Kaspa's potential in complementing Bitcoin by fulfilling the role of a scalable, efficient medium of exchange in the digital economy.

Well, technically, blockchain cannot run any LLM on chain, maybe small AI but major LLM would be way to big and demanding in terms or storage and ressources. Because of that, the idea of connecting Blockchain and AI, even just as a "middleware" to fetch off chain AI API still make sens. I'm developer of [blockai.dev](http://blockai.dev), which is also a Blockchain & AI project, we basically offer to run Agents similarly to how blockchain nodes work, these agents can resolve AI requests for a fee, this allow any dApp to request an AI Task and receive the result through a callback and then use it on chain. This is a needed first step to use AI in Blockchain projects. Being able to verify the requested data is indeed important and something not yet handled by most projects but we are all still early in building around this, there is way to handle it and they should be implemented as next steps. Areas we are exploring at BAI for this are a DAG based approach for oracle networks or, another possible option is using seeds, API like OpenAI for example allow to use "seed" with request which allow to generate (mostly) consitant results therefore we could image that each Agents of the network have a seed and is required to use it in all it's request. From there we could imagine to have something where everytime one agent would be processing a request, another one, selected randomly, would verify the request using the processing agent seed. Agent would get flagged and excluded if verification fail. You can read more about it: [https://cookbook.openai.com/examples/reproducible\_outputs\_with\_the\_seed\_parameter](https://cookbook.openai.com/examples/reproducible_outputs_with_the_seed_parameter)
