Wow this IS huge, I was worried since ive never seen the team be this excited in all the years ive followed this project. Well done guys, this certainly deserves alot of attention. Super excited about further progress and the other parts to be released in upcoming weeks.
Quick question regarding this part: “We prove the algorithm’s correctness provided that less than a third of
participating nodes are faulty”. What happens if 34% of nodes are faulty? Would that be seen as a 51% attack when talking about blockchain? Is this prevented in any way considering other features in maid such as privacy and so forth? Yes as it wont be possible to tell how many nodes there are and thus what percentage is needed but you could still kind of brute-force attack the network for malicious intent. I dont see this as a problem at scale but in infancy stages…?
