BYZANTINE GENERALS' PROBLEM Sweatshirt
This Sweatshirt Celebrates the 40 year anniversary of the writing of the original Byzantine Generals’ Problem white paper which was accepted for publishing in November 1981.
So what is the Byzantine Generals’ Problem anyway and why should you care?
Used by computer researchers at Stanford Research Institute, the Byzantine Generals’ Problem is an abstract thought experiment which is at the very heart of Blockchain and necessary for a true understanding of its promise for consensus validation at scale.
In it’s simplest form the problem asks, how can individual parties find a way to guarantee full consensus?
The allegory describes a situation in which a system's actors must agree on a concerted strategy, but some of these actors are unreliable.
Once considered impossible to solve, Satoshi’s Decentralized Blockchain architecture can now provide a general solution to the problem. With a layer that can be trusted without having to trust each and every person.
This Limited Edition of 150 shirts comes in a custom cotton bag and is hand numbered. Includes a mini version of the White paper.
