Tendermint vs BigchainDB: What are the differences?

Tendermint: A software for securely and consistently replicating an application on many machines. It is a software which can be used to achieve Byzantine fault tolerance (BFT) in any distributed computing platforms. It consists of two chief technical components: a blockchain consensus engine and a generic application interface; BigchainDB: A database with blockchain characteristics. It is designed to merge the best of two worlds: the “traditional” distributed database world and the “traditional” blockchain world. With high throughput, low latency, powerful query functionality, decentralized control, immutable data storage and built-in asset support.

Tendermint and BigchainDB belong to "Blockchain" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Tendermint are:

  • Byzantine Fault-Tolerant
  • State Machine Replication
  • Secure P2P

On the other hand, BigchainDB provides the following key features:

  • Decentralization
  • Immutability
  • Native Support of Multiassets
