Proof of Work Vs Proof of Stake – Laneaxis

The cryptocurrency world has been adapting to the current demands and generating new consensus algorithms with better functionalities. The first consensus algorithm was the Proof of Work algorithm, but today there are various protocols such as Proof of Stake and Proof of Space. Specific consensus algorithms offer certain advantages over others. For example, the Proof of Stake algorithm is a more secure, faster and cheaper consensus protocol than Proof of Work. LaneAxis, the world’s freight brokerless direct freight network, utilizes a Proof of Stake algorithm to ensure quick transactions....

Dan Larimer talks on Delegated Proof of Stake

What is delegated proof of stake? “(DPOS) Delegated proof of stake is a new consensus algorithms that allows shareholders (or the users of the system) to have control over who is certifying the ledger. it allows us to have 10 second block times, process 10 transactions per second or more, and allows the network to scale; to have dedicated nodes that are highly efficient and specialized yet remain in control of the shareholders. We can actually have 10 second confirmation on your blocks that is more secure than bitcoin.” How is DPOS different than proof of stake or proof of work? “Proof of....

News Summary 10/19 – 10/26

This week, Bitcoinist has published two excellent articles on the topic of DPOS, or delegated Proof of Stake. Both written by Alberto Mata, DPOS is a new feature that Bitshares is talking about, which they believe solves problems of both proof or work and proof of stake systems alike, adding another layer of security by countering the negative effects of trust centralization. One fact that is pointed out however is that it a DPOS system is still vulnerable to 51% attacks, but the cost would be much higher compared to another systems.

Is The Ethereum Merge About To Have A Confirmed Delay?

The Ethereum Merge is the upcoming transition from proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake system and the Merge is the most important part of the ETH 2.0 upgrade. The upgrade is concerned with the transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake consensus. The upgrade as reported has been delayed until the end of 2022, with no firm date on […]
