This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant.

Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) is one of the fundamental problems in cryptocurrency and blockchain systems. It requires overall system agreement on a single data value in the presence of a number of arbitrary faulty processes, which includes malicious fraud. Tendermint is a BFT state machine replication engine that lets you implement your own blockchain systems. The consensus engine, Tendermint Core, takes over the peer-to-peer communication and consensus part, you just need to implement the rest of the application (e.g., construct transaction and verify cryptographic signature) and communicate with Tendermint Core through ABCI. Some blockchain implementations have already chosen Tendermint as their consensus engine.
