Hello, I'm a fellow researcher!

Hey all,

I am doing protocol level research on different blockchains and was interested in writing a blogpost about Ouroboros Genesis. From what I’ve read Genesis seems like an absolutely amazing platform with a promising future as a widespread blockchain. I love seeing the strong academic background of the researchers and them contributing to the research from an academic perspective with strong proofs. However, there were a couple things I wanted to clarify.

I was wondering if anyone knew about the economic model of Genesis? i.e. is there some reward scheme that is in progress? I couldn’t really find anything online. Also, what claims does Genesis make about scalability? I’ve read that Genesis is supposed to be extremely scalable, but I have not seen any hard numbers or proofs as to why.

There’s the Reward Sharing Schemes for Stake Pools paper.

Ouroboros Hydra will deal with that.


I hope you started here: https://iohk.io/research/papers/

As for the reward scheme they have published this recently:
