What is the BlockQuick(TM) Consensus Reputation Table?
The BlockQuick Consensus Reputation Table (CRT) is a key security policy which BlockQuick adopts when validating a block. The CRT is constructed on each client based on the last known block headers in a given time frame. For instance, in a Proof-of-Work (PoW) system the client will be able to construct the consensus reputation table by reading 100 previous block headers from the last known state of the blockchain. All past block headers of the blockchain can be validated on the client using the parent block checksum alone. Thus, clients are able to fetch these block headers from untrusted nodes as the data can be validated using the existing block header and its contained parent block hash.
