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.
