We are very proud to announce that we have managed to finish a months long milestone to update Smilo and pair up with Quorum.
We have released and tested with the community the Smilodon Populator — Quorum 2.6.0 (GETH 1.9.7)
This release brings private transactions to the Tendermint, Istanbul and Sport consensus, before this was disabled.
What is Tendermint Consensus ?
Tendermint is Consensus created to secure and replicate an application on many machines. Tendermint works even if up to 1/3 of machines fail in arbitrary ways.
The main idea behind adapting this consensus to Smilo is because Tendermint is designed to be easy-to-use, simple-to-understand, it provides high performance, proof of stake, and useful for a wide variety of distributed applications.
Using Tendermint, All non-faulty nodes will effectively seeing the same transaction log and computes the same state.
