Introduction to Tendermint by Oliver Wee, CTO, StakeWith.Us
Tendermint is the software to securely and consistently replicate an application on a distributed network. It consists of two main technical components: a Blockchain Consensus Engine and Peer-to-peer Gossip Protocol known as Tendermint Core, and a generic application interface called Application Blockchain Interface (ABCI).
Tendermint Core provides the consensus and networking layer of a blockchain for decentralised applications. ABCI is a socket protocol that enables transactions to be processed in any programming language between the decentralized application and Tendermint Core.
8:10pm – 8:40pm: Presentation by Pavel Bains, CEO, Bluzelle
How Tendermint is Utilised in Blockchain Applications
Tendermint can be treated as a toolkit that caters to blockchain application developers. It is compatible with any programming language and allows for higher-level development for decentralised applications running just the business logic without lower-level tinkering on the consensus layer. Pavel will be giving a talk on how decentralised data storage networks for blockchain applications such as Bluzelle, can integrate Cosmos/Tendermint to provide advance features to their network.
8:40pm – 9:00pm: Networking
