So if I want to setup a consortium network between two companies who would do the mining? The companies want to use the consortium network to purchase goods using ether.
I’d like some clarity in the following.
I’ve read that two miners each is a good rule of thumb having 50% of the miners each for validating the chain. Is this correct?
What is to stop someone starting up another miner?
We don’t want miners to get rewards as this should just be to validate the chain and we primarily want the ether sent from one account to another to allow purchases?
What happens if more companies get on board, would they need to setup miners to validate the chain on there side?
