Wrapping up the month of September with remarkable growth— from Reef DC University launch to a successful Founders’ Roundtable with Reef Labs Accelerator Program projects and more, it had been an eventful month at Reef. Let's dive into the highlights.
Reef Labs Accelerator Program

Technical Insights & Innovations
- BABE Protocol: We explored the intricate workings of the BABE (Blind Assignment for Blockchain Extension) Protocol. BABE meticulously assigns block production slots using Verifiable Random Functions (VRF) to maintain fairness and bolster security. It balances both private and public randomness, uses GRANDPA (GHOST-based Recursive Ancestor Deriving Prefix Agreement), and the longest chain selection, maintaining a robust ecosystem. Check out more about the BABE Protocol.
- Proof of Commitment (PoC): Unveiling the Proof of Commitment (PoC) Consensus mechanism, we shed light on the processes by which PoC elects Technical Council members and the significance of the bonding period. This mechanism showcases Reef’s commitment to creating an ecosystem where technical governance is transparent, competent, and aligned with the community's best interests. Read more about the Reef PoC Consensus mechanism.
September 2023 was a testimony to our commitment to innovation, community, and growth. As we close this chapter and look forward to the upcoming month, we carry with us the learnings, the successes, and the undying spirit of collaboration. Here's to more milestones, more achievements, and an ever-growing Reef community!
