Thanks for the feedback eli. I have another question that I’d like to ask on the forum regarding the governance tools to manage infrastructure resources (e.g deploy/remove nodes) within a consortium.
I understand the “application / protocol” / Ethereum level governance tools available to each party in a multi-member consortium.
How does governance of the shared infrastructure (Strato Nodes) work?
What I currently see is one party (EON / Entity Operating on Network) currently launching the blockchain platform (with a fixed set of nodes), inviting members (EP / Enterprise Participants), giving invited EP’s some capabilities to manage the shared resources (e.g. they can set up private channels and invite other members, launch/remove their own nodes) and whitelist/blacklist other members nodes.
Some questions I have:
Does the party who launches the blockchain consortium (EON) instance/genesis block have more “powers” than invited members (EP’s)?
Can a Group add more peers or remote nodes than the rest of the consortium/network (with write permission), and then perform something like a 51% attack?
If a company (with an EP) decides that the overall network is slow, and they want to contribute more nodes to improve overall performance, can they?
How does the whitelisting and blacklisting of nodes by EP’s work? IF EP 1 blacklists a node (that belongs to EP 2), will EP 3 still be able to validate against EP 2’s node? If X percent of EP’s blacklist a node, will it be blacklisted across the network for all participants?
Hope my questions make sense (there’s a lot of new terms to be aware of).
