  • Patent number: 11411721
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a distributed transaction system including a group of validator nodes that are known to each other in a network but are indistinguishable to other network nodes. The validator nodes form a Committee including a Leader node and one or more Associate nodes. The Committee may be dynamically changed, such that new network nodes may be added to the Committee or may replace existing validator nodes. The Associate nodes also may coordinate with each other to select a new Leader node. The disclosed embodiments reduce the distributed system's reliance on the stability of any particular node(s) in the network, as the validator nodes in the Committee may be changed at a sufficient frequency to remove unreliable, unavailable, or otherwise untrusted nodes. Further, the disclosed embodiments provide a scheme that helps ensure the Leader node, as well as the other Committee members, functions properly.

  • Publication number: 20220246111
    Abstract: An electronic device coupled to a display includes a graphics card and a processor. The graphics card reads the extended display identification data from the display. The processor determines, according to the extended display identification data, that the display is able to display a default resolution at a first refresh rate at most, and determines, according to the extended display identification data, whether the display device is able to display the default resolution at a second refresh rate that exceeds the first refresh rate. When it is determined that the display is able to display the default resolution at the second refresh rate, the processor adds the second refresh rate into the extended display identification data.
