Abstract

In this thesis, we discuss the analysis of the "Proof-of-Stake" (PoS) distributed consensus protocol Avalanche. We describe blockchain, consensus algorithms and the simulation tools designed to simulate the blockchain. After getting acquainted with all the necessary facts, the thesis proceeds with the implementation of a simulator of the consensus algorithm implemented in the Avalanche protocol, which mimics the functioning of the Avalanche consensus. Experiments with simulator were conducted with various parameters and helpedus to understand properties of Avalanche.
