Implementations§

source§

impl Consensus

source

pub fn new( blockchain: Blockchain, finalization_threshold: usize, pow_target: u32, pow_fixed_difficulty: Option<BigUint> ) -> Result<Self>

Generate a new Consensus state.

source

pub async fn generate_empty_fork(&self) -> Result<()>

Generate a new empty fork.

source

pub async fn append_proposal(&self, proposal: &Proposal) -> Result<()>

Given a proposal, the node verifys it and finds which fork it extends. If the proposal extends the canonical blockchain, a new fork chain is created.

source

pub async fn find_extended_fork( &self, proposal: &Proposal ) -> Result<(Fork, Option<usize>)>

Given a proposal, find the fork chain it extends, and return its full clone. If the proposal extends the fork not on its tail, a new fork is created and we re-apply the proposals up to the extending one. If proposal extends canonical, a new fork is created. Additionally, we return the fork index if a new fork was not created, so caller can replace the fork.

source

pub async fn finalization(&self) -> Result<Option<usize>>

Check if best fork proposals can be finalized. Consensus finalization logic:

  • If the current best fork has reached greater length than the security threshold, and no other fork exist with same rank, first proposal(s) in that fork can be appended to canonical blockchain (finalize).

When best fork can be finalized, first block(s) should be appended to canonical, and forks should be rebuilt.

source

pub async fn get_fork_proposals( &self, tip: HeaderHash, fork_tip: HeaderHash ) -> Result<Vec<Proposal>>

Auxiliary function to retrieve a fork proposals. If provided tip is not the canonical(finalized), or fork doesn’t exists, an empty vector is returned.

source

pub async fn best_fork_last_header(&self) -> Result<(u32, HeaderHash)>

Auxiliary function to retrieve current best fork last header. If no forks exist, grab the last header from canonical.

source

pub async fn get_best_fork_proposals( &self, tip: HeaderHash ) -> Result<Vec<Proposal>>

Auxiliary function to retrieve current best fork proposals. If provided tip is not the canonical(finalized), or no forks exist, an empty vector is returned.

source

pub async fn reset_forks( &self, prefix: &[HeaderHash], finalized_fork_index: &usize, finalized_txs: &[Transaction] ) -> Result<()>

Auxiliary function to purge current forks and reset the ones starting with the provided prefix, excluding provided finalized fork. Additionally, remove finalized transactions from the forks mempools, along with the unporposed transactions sled trees. This function assumes that the prefix blocks have already been appended to canonical chain from the finalized fork.
