Proof of stake(POS) Blockchain
Proof of stake(PoS) is a consensus mechanism for blockchain networks. It redefines how blockchain nodes agree on which record of crypto transactions is accurate. PoS is a set of rules or system of agreement that is used to validate cryptocurrency transactions. It requires validators to stake tokens to validate transactions. A growing number of the most popular cryptocurrencies use some variation of the PoS protocol,these are- Comos (ATOM), Cardano (ADA), Polkadot (DOT), Solana (SOL), Vechain (VET), Tezos (XTZ).
Features of Proof of stake(POS)
The PoS offers unique features:-
- 1Validation replaces mining
- 2Low entry
- 3Passive income
- 4Majority holders protect the system
- 5Validators take the transaction fees
Benefits of Proof of stake(PoS)
- One of the primary benefits of Proof of stake is as a consensus mechanism.
- It is more energy efficient because it does not require expending computational resources, and individuals can participate in the peer-to-peer network without the need for purchasing and setting up expensive powerful computers and cooling systems.
- It makes the blockchain secure by incentivizing proper validation and disincentivizing improper ones.
Process of PoS
Is Proof of stake secure?
Proof of stake concept states that a person can mine or validate block transactions according to how many coins they hold. It is seen as less risky in terms of the potential for miners to attack the network, as it structures compensation in a way that makes an attack less advantageous for the miner.
Examples of proof of stake(PoS)
Proof of stake is the latest way of solving problems. However, unlike PoW(Proof of work), PoS is more focused on cryptocurrency mining solutions with fast speed and more security. Let’s look at some examples of cryptocurrencies that use PoS:
Ethereum 2.0Proof of stake is an Ethereum improvement proposal(EIP). Ethereum community initially adopted it as a way to improve the performance of the network.
TezosThe Tezos network is a decentralized blockchain with an incentive mechanism built on top of it. This allows the network to reward validators with newly created tokens for securing and maintaining the network. As more people join the system, their stakes are increased, incentivizing them to become active participants.
CosmosA blockchain company based in Colombia,Cosmos has successfully deployed a proof-of-stack(PoS) network for wider use than Bitcoin.Cosmos, a cryptocurrency that aims to become the world’s first and biggest proof of stake(PoS) cryptocurrency.
