Dr. Feng Cao: PCHAIN multi-chain principle.

  1. Mark the current time point as the beginning of a new epoch.
  2. First, PCHAIN divides all nodes in the chain into groups, called execution groups, by verifiable random functions. And then PCHAIN select some of the “qualified” nodes and form a group called the governance group through the same process. (Note: ‘qualified’ means that the node has sufficient PCH and applies to be a member of the governance group.)
  3. It will classify transactions. For example, depending on the user who initiated the request, it sends the transaction to a specific execution group and then executes and validates the transaction within the group, and finally, a consensus is reached at the transaction level.
  4. After a specific time interval, the execution group wraps the list of verified transactions to the governance group. The governance group then aggregates these transaction lists from different execution groups to reach consensus at the block level to form blocks and broadcast to the entire network.
  5. At the end of each epoch, it ensures that all nodes are synchronized to the latest block and are in a consistent state; Then it enters a new epoch.
