BigTangle is a cryptocurrency network extending directed acyclic graph architectures with Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) as a consensus algorithm and distributed Proof-of-Work.
Through the use of industry standard big data technology in conjunction with the parallelizable architecture, BigTangle is a successor to conventional blockchains in the sense that it generalizes existing blockchain and smart contract architectures and makes them usable on a global scale.
Because of this and the unique design simplified pictured below, BigTangle has the potential to exist as the only platform of its kind comparable to the Internet.
BigTangle focuses on economically important key use cases. Custom token issuances, market exchanges, mining and smart contracts are supported.
To fully understand the BigTangle, it is worth it to read the whitepaper and referenced papers for technical details and mathematical proof. In simple terms, BigTangle is very similar to family trees with MCMC as natural selection process. The application is build on microservices and is very easy for use. You can test the application and inspect the source code.
