Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT)

A property of fault-tolerant distributed computing systems, reaching consensus through a mechanism, where components may fail and there may be imperfect information. For example, Bitcoin is Byzantine Fault Tolerant, utilizing the proof-of-work system to reach consensus on the blockchain. Its applications are beyond blockchain, including messaging and networking systems, among others.
