Question about Ouroboros


#1

Hi :slight_smile: I 'm sonia and i’m studying the proof of stake of cardano but i have some question about the slot leaders election.
Ouroboros is based on PVSS which uses a leader for the generation of the secret, is it the same thing in Ouroboros? (we have a leader who constructs a secret by using a polynomial).
In this case, who is the leader ? if it’s not the case, how we construct the secret ?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Hi sonia,

I’m not the person who can answer those questions, I hope someone will answer, meanwhile you can go through the Cardano docs (PVSS IMPLEMENTATION IN CARDANO SL) and Ouroboros research paper “Ouroboros: A Provably Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain Protocol” here . I think you will find the answers there.
