  • Patent number: 11475025
    Abstract: The invention comprises a decentralized consensus protocol for blockchains in which the computation can be used to search for good approximate solutions to any optimization problem. This protocol allows the wasted energy to be used for finding approximate solutions to problems submitted by any nodes (called clients). This protocol works in a similar way to proof-of-work, and it makes nodes evaluate a large number of solution candidates to add a new block to the chain. A client provides a search program that implements any search algorithm that finds a good solution by evaluating a large number of solution candidates. The node that finds the best approximate solution is rewarded by the client.
