Consensus algorithms in contrast to the public Ethereum network’s computational-intensive Proof of Work (PoW) algorithm, Kaleido private chains use permission-based algorithms that rely on voting rounds and digital signatures for state agreement and protection.
The Rotating Signers service can be configured to have different target signers count, rotation size, and rotation interval. It also allows for the rotation algorithm to be configurable, although currently the only supported algorithm is "oldest-first", meaning the signers that have been active the longest will be voted out in the next rotation.
