Hashgraph is a new kind of consensus mechanism, based on gossip about gossip and virtual voting. Previous generations of voting systems go back decades and achieve definitive consensus, but are very slow. Hashgraph’s innovation is in virtual voting, which gives you all the guarantees that voting has (which proof-of-work (PoW) doesn't), but is incredibly efficient because we don’t actually send any votes over the internet.
