Viewstamped Replication Made Famous

A $20,000 Consensus Challenge

Brought to you by Coil in partnership with our friends at the Zig Software Foundation (ZSF).

Do you love distributed systems, high availability and fault tolerance? Do network partitions and consensus protocols scare you? Have you watched War Games, Hackers and Sneakers more than once? Ever wanted to be a bounty hunter but didn't know where to start?

If you answered Yes!!! to any of the above, then this is your invitation to test our skills and learn consensus the fun way, by hacking TigerBeetle's implementation of the pioneering Viewstamped Replication consensus protocol, and earning bounties of up to $3,000 for a correctness bug and up to $500 for a liveness bug, within scope, in a $20,000 consensus challenge.
