It seems there are two PoA consensus algorithms in parity PoA. What is the difference between Validator Sets and Aura?

    Misconception here: aura is the only PoA consensus algorithm in parity currently, and the validator set is part of the configuration of any PoA network, example here: wiki.parity.io/Pluggable-Consensus.html#aura – Joshua Mir Jan 29 '19 at 15:49
  • Maybe not Validator Sets, but Validator engines. It seems there are Ethash, Instant Seal, Validator engines and Aura in that page. – Satoshi Nakanishi Jan 30 '19 at 2:18
  • Aura uses Validator Set. – rstormsf Jan 30 '19 at 21:36
