The paper proposes a new socially oriented protocol that avoids pseudo-decentralization and monopolization of the network, increases the availability of the system, provides a fair selection of potential validator nodes, and provides a fair reward for creating new blocks and adding them to the blockchain. Our proposed protocol provides for the creation and addition of new blocks to a blockchain. Defines a node validator, which will create the next block according to its useful activity in the network according to predefined conditions, which can be formed according to the requirements of the system and will satisfy the individual needs of the blockchain. Also in the process of developing the proposed protocol, the main aspects of security related to protection against various types of malicious software, including botnets and computer viruses, were addressed. To apply PoA, the network is designed on a Layered Peer to Peer (LP2P) architecture, the feature of which is that nodes interact at different levels according to their typing or parameterization, which will be used to execute the algorithm developed and find consensus. In addition, the protocol may be one of the steps in the implementation of new principles of local tax policy, where taxes will be tied to the activities of individual members of the public, as well as the renewal of suffrage based on the social activity of network members and a qualitatively new principle of conducting new ones, experimental but qualitative choices.
