(09/27/2018) Perlin’s team has devised a new open, permissionless ledger to produce an improved variant of Avalanche: Wavelet. These enhancements tackle a large number of practicality/safety concerns which come from translating Avalanche from a purely academic work to a real-world solution that is usable by developers. The introduction of Wavelet is aiming to solve issues with Avalance while allowing developers to implement efficient leaderless PoS protocols, smart contracts and economic incentives on top of these exciting new metastable consensus protocols. Transference is among the early investors of Perlin
