Consensus algorithms refer to evidence or verification that establishes the authenticity, correctness, or validity of a claim, statement, or transaction. Proofs are often based on mathematical or cryptographic techniques, ensuring that certain conditions are met without revealing sensitive information. Proofs play a fundamental role in blockchain technology, enabling secure transactions, consensus mechanisms, and data integrity verification. They are essential for establishing trust and security in decentralized systems by demonstrating the truth of statements or actions without the need for full disclosure.
