It's a novel algorithm to measure which nodes are actually participating in the peer-to-peer network, and gradually remove the nodes from the federation which are not participating. This is why we call our strategy "Proof of Participation."

Proof of Participation from what I understand is a new unique consensus algorithm used in ZooBC , which has been mentioned before "a protocol that measuring which nodes are actually participating in the peer-to-peer network, and gradually remove the nodes from the federation which are not participating. "

You can learn more about it here.

But what is the "consensus algorithm"?

Consensus algorithm is like an agreement of "truth" since blockchain itself is a decentralized system that means there is no central authority to maintain the system. So to create a safe transaction among people without any central power, there must be one objective truth we called protocols or consensus algorithms.

Here, the protocols/consensus algorithms replacing human referees in a given network. Click to know more

Hope it's helpful!
