For various reasons I have to examine byzantine fault tolerant consensus mechanisms. One of the surprising things I noticed is something like Dunbar's number falls out of it naturally.

I was not aware of either of these things (and now have some interesting reading to do) thanks. I will say that it doesn't surprise me that there is some limit on how much social coordination can be done in a group.

I guess you're doing this for blockchain?
