Thanks for the response! Yeah, this makes more sense to me now after reading that twitter post.
I am trying to figure out if what consensus algorithms out there would be best suited for our project.
Would it be okay to say that the hbbft https://github.com/poanetwork/hbbft you guys are working on, because it is just a consensus algorithm, can be easily used on any blockchain, kind of like Tendermint claims to be? Or is this hbbft implementation only usable on an EVM blockchain?
I do understand now that it technical can be the underlying consensus algorithm of any blockchain, but I am just wondering if it is being written with only the EVM in mind, or if it should be able to support any blockchain state machine.
