Sing a song of Simplex

Victor Shoup, Offchain Labs
Abstract

We flesh out some details of the recently proposed Simplex atomic broadcast protocol, and modify it so that leaders disperse blocks in a more communication-efficient fashion. The resulting protocol, called DispersedSimplex, maintains the simplicity and excellent latency characteristics of the original Simplex protocol. We also present several variations, including one with ``stable leaders''.
