The draft regulations
  4. Casanova graph. Credit: Pyrofex Corporation. A team of researchers at Pyrofex Corporation recently introduced Casanova, a leaderless optimistic consensus algorithm suited for use in a blockchain. Rather than producing a chain, Casanova produces blocks in a directed acyclic graph (DAG), which is essentially a directed graph with no cycles. Casanova pipelines voting rounds and block production to improve scalability and has a unique 'line item veto' for conflicting transactions such as double spends. "We were looking for a scalable consensus algorithm that we could use to imp

That was the spotlight feature on the original HTC Exodus 1 and the same is true for the newly announced Exodus 1s.
