Helix Consensus Algorithm

We are happy to introduce Helix, a decentralized, scalable and fair consensus algorithm tailored to the ideals of mass-market apps.

Orbs is designed with one clear dominant controlling group in mind — the applications running on top of Orbs. Helix is designed to give governing power to these apps—the stakeholders using the platform—and not miners or large token holders as is often the case with other consensus algorithms.
