Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT)

    Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) refers to a blockchain network’s ability to reach consensus and continue operating even if some of its nodes fail to respond or respond incorrectly. A Byzantine Fault Tolerant network solves the Byzantine Generals’ Problem, which occurs when all parties must agree but one or more parties are untrustworthy. Byzantine Fault Tolerant is the most widely used blockchain consensus mechanism.
