About Hedera Hashgraph
Hedera Hashgraph is a distributed ledger technology and consensus algorithm. It provides fast, fair and secure infrastructure to run decentralized applications. With lightning-fast throughput, asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance backed by mathematical proofs, it has significant implications for both public and private distributed ledger technology. Unlike some blockchain-based platforms, it doesn’t require compute-heavy proof-of-work.
Why Hedera Hashgraph?
4 things that make Hashgraph suitable for scalable and reliable enterprise solutions.
Hedera Hashgraph has the potential to prevent nodes from controlling the transaction order as it serializes the order of transactions using cryptographic time-stamping.
Applications built on Hedera Hashgraph platform is Asynchronous Byzantine Tolerance System which is resilient to DDoS attacks.
Having capability of handling 200,000 transactions within seconds, the application can scale to millions of user base.
Hedera Hashgraph implements Gossip about Gossip combined with Virtual Voting to reach consensus quickly without the need for a Proof of Work (PoW).
