Permissionless

« Back to Glossary Index

It is often used to describe blockchains. It is a system where there is no entity who can regulate who can use it and how it can be used. Bitcoin is permissionless as anybody can use it in any way they would like to as long as the protocol itself permits it and nobody is able to stop them. The consensus mechanisms that are used in the permissionless networks are PoS and PoW.
