Ontorand Consensus Engine

    The Ontology blockchain protocol employs the Ontorand Consensus Engine (OCE) as its consensus mechanism. OCE is an improved version of the dBFT consensus protocol that also employs verifiable random function (VRF) and proof-of-stake (PoS) technology. OCE is built on Onchain’s Distributed Networks Architecture (DNA), which was created by the NEO developers. OCE has near-infinite theoretical scalability and requires a relatively low hash rate, with block-creation speeds limited only by a user’s internet speed.
