Byzantine Generals’ Problem

    The Byzantine Generals’ Problem is a computing term that refers to a situation in which all parties or components of a system must agree on a single consensus-based strategy in order to avoid total network failure. Failure can occur when one of the network’s nodes or other architectural components fails. Byzantine Fault Tolerant Networks are those that can solve the Byzantine Generals’ Problem (BFT). Byzantine Fault Tolerant is the most widely used blockchain consensus mechanism.
