Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS) are the models that are called ‘consensus mechanisms’, which are a current requirement to confirm transactions that take place on a blockchain, without the need for a third party. There are currently discussions about Ethereum switching from
Proof of Work to Proof of Stake. This change could affect the overall market
related to crypto mining. This is an important risk factor that people, as an
investor, should know. So, before we d
Open blockchain platform Harmony announced that it will now support staking along with sharding, aiming to create a blockchain infrastructure that attains high scalability. On May 19, 2020, Harmony claimed it is the first to ever integrate staking into a blockchain network also utilizing sharding to attain high transaction throughput. Sharded PoS is now a reality!

Blockchain is a distributed database that uses cryptography to enforce consensus about its content and rules that defines when and how something becomes part of a database and/or is executed. This Blockchain basics guide attempts to sort things up and provide an overview of the families and trees of blockchains. Applications Of Blockchain In Cryptocurrencies Cryptocurrencies use blockchain technology to create a decentralized monetary system by building a consensus about a sh
The application of Google’s Quantum Computing Technology could reportedly help to improve the technology which underpins proof-of-stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies. PoS is a type of consensus algorithm where block creators are randomly chosen with a probability that proportional to their stake, while the algorithm of proof-of-work-based digital currencies uses mining. However, the PoS variant has raised doubts regarding the integrity of random selections. On October 23, Scott Aaro
