Intel is going to patent the alternative option of confirmation of transactions in a distributed registry without the participation of miners. May 23, the U.S. patent and trademark office, published application, which the company describes its proposal as follows:
“This method primarily relates to security of data processing systems. Including to methods and tools that facilitate safe, dividing the data into new blocks and update of distributed registries”.
The described method differs from the method used by these blockchains like bitcoin, in which confirmation and record of transactions engaged miners receive a reward.
So an automated method to check the entries in the block digital register is used by the first node checks (FVN), receiving data from the second node checks (SVN).
These data include a digital signature for record in the block. After receiving the information FVN automatically receives the identifier of the node for SVN-based digital signature. The first node-the validator uses the ID of a node for SVN to determine, whether it belongs to the group of validators which includes FVN. Then FVN determines whether the generated digital signature to the recording unit private key that corresponds to the ID node for SVN.
So the physical computer to be able to participate in this automatic process, it is necessary to set the parameters in accordance with which the units can be confirmed.
However, automation does not solve the scalability problem that is now acute for blockchains, so the text of the document States that distributed the registers, perhaps not the most rational place to store data.
“All validators in the system of the distributed registry should have copies of all transactions, and therefore they must be made available to all validators. Because of this need there is a huge number of network messages”, — stated in the application.
