Scalable blockchain database BigchainDB releases 2.0.0 Beta 6


Almost 2 months since its latest release, scalable blockchain database BigchainDB today announced an update on the path toward BigchainDB 2.0.0 to come out of Beta. The most significant addition is the ability to add a validator, remove a validator, or change the voting power of a validator at runtime.

The basic process is that one of the existing validators proposes the change to the rest of the network by creating a new “upsert‐validator election.” The other validators then vote yes or no, and once more than two‐thirds of the validators vote yes, the change goes into effect. The election and the votes are all recorded on the blockchain. The details of how to do that are documented in the BigchainDB docs.
