A consensus algorithm may be defined as the mechanism through which a blockchain network reaches consensus – a general agreement. Decentralized blockchains are built as distributed systems and, since they do not rely on a central authority, the distributed nodes need to agree on a general algorithm to ensure the validity of all transactions.

There are several types of consensus algorithms in blockchain. Some of the most common implementations are PoW, PoS, and DPoS.

TRON network uses an improved version of DPoS as its consensus algorithm which is known as TPoS (TRON Proof of Stake).
