[Hyperledger Project TSC] Arch-WG update


Ram Jagadeesan (rjagadee)
 

Folks,

I am on travel and was unable to attend the TSC meeting yesterday, but wanted to share a status update on Arch-WG.

The Arch-WG met last Friday along with the vHackathon and again on our regular slot on Wed.
We seem to be converging on a common functional definition of the consensus and smart-contract layers, that will allow us to have a truly pluggable consensus layer that accommodates different consensus algorithms. As we develop the common definition, both the new fabric consensus proposal and the POET teams are testing it bottom-up to see if their designs can fit or can be evolved to meet the common framework. We will try to have another off-cycle meeting next week towards reaching a definitive point on this topic.

Thanks,

Ram
