Coin Flipping for Cardano Slot Dissemination Rewards

May 3rd, 2020

Which is best for Cardano and its decentralization, a battle or a coin flip when it comes to slot dissemination?


Coin Flipping


A thought experiment:

Slot Dissemination (Battle)
When two pools are assigned the same exact slot, a basic unit of time, probably containing a block, & parent block, then the pool that disseminates their slot to the greatest number of nodes first is awarded that slot.

Vs.

Slot Dissemination (Coin Flipping)
When two pools are assigned the same exact slot, a basic unit of time, probably containing a block, & parent block and both pools disseminate their slot out to the ecosystem, then the pool awarded that slot is selected randomly, 50/50 chance of being granted that slot.
