I wanted to test a new consensus protocol. However, the bitcoin core is a large codebase (>100k lines). Is there any small codebase which is designed to test new consensus protocols and includes only essential features of a cryptocurrency?

Goal: Run a testnet with a few AWS-EC2 instances across the world for payments using UTXO model.

    What is the goal or scope of your test? What are the key differences between it and bitcoin (or other cryptocurrencies) that you hope to test? – chytrik Dec 3 '18 at 22:22
  • @chytrik: I have updated the question. I just want to change the consensus protocol of Bitcoin to support high throughput for payments. – Vivek Bagaria Dec 3 '18 at 22:27
