Proof of Interaction (POI)

Proof of Interaction

The BlockMesh network in its current form utilizes a modified Proof-of-Work (POW) consensus mechanism. Our team has plans to move to a new, proprietary consensus BLOCKMESH mechanism, known for these purposes as Proof-of-Interaction (POI).

Proof of interaction: In order to reach consensus, a BlockMesh with offline tx’s cannot use traditional methods, since it requires a single node to be aware of the entire network state at once.

In order to address this, ByteBlock has invented a new consensus model, known here as Proof-of- Interaction (POI).

POI allows each paired device to mine its own tx’s, and rewards them at a scaled rate related to how much offline transactional data it contributes to the online network.
