In order to achieve this, BCSO will number the proposals, collate participants’ suggestions and put the proposals to a vote. Thereafter, BCSO will update the network standard protocol based on the results of the vote. Yang concluded that he is sure that his proposed organization will help resolve the BCH network’s consensus issues.
