Ordering ServiceΒΆ

[WIP] ...coming soon

This topic will outline the role and functionalities of the ordering service, and explain its place in the broader network and in the lifecycle of a transaction.
The v1 architecture has been designed such that the ordering service is the centralized point of trust in a decentralized network, but also such that the specific implementation of “ordering” (solo, kafka, BFT) becomes a pluggable component.

Refer to the design document on a Kafka-based Ordering Service for more information on the default v1 implementation.
