Welcome to the Cerberus Infographic Series, where we take an in-depth look at how Cerberus, Radix’s unique consensus protocol, will provide the unlimited, frictionless scalability required to bring Decentralized Finance (DeFi) to billions of people.
Today’s chapter is Chapter VI:
- Episode 12: Consensus - Emergent Cerberus: We illustrate how emergent Cerberus works, which is how nodes come to consensus with one another across shards.
- Episode 13: Partial Ordering - Parallelization of Processing: We describe how nearly all blockchain ledgers order transactions on a global timeline, which prevents them from achieving massive scalability. We then go on to explore how Radix’s innovative use of a partially ordered ledger is the ideal solution, allowing Radix practically infinite linear scalability while preserving atomic composability.
Here’s the running order:
Chapter III: Substate; Substate and Transactions
Chapter IV: Shard Allocation; Transactions
Chapter VI: Consensus - Emergent Cerberus; Partial Ordering - Parallelization of Processing
