PeerCoin White Paper: - Arguably the first coin to introduce Proof of Stake as an alternative to Proof of Work for distributed consensus. Dan Larimer introduces Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) BitShares: First coin to use DPoS Proof of Stake Thread: Shows the original idea of PoS and its criticisms and benefits (edited)

Dear MUE community, we have suffered a huge attack on the network. It appears to have been a kind of replay/re-organisation attack POW coins have been victim of in recent months and that was able to obtain MUE in the millions. We have decided on immediate...
Pseudonymous developer Sunny King, the creator of proof-of-stake, has a new approach for the consensus mechanism ‚Äď and it revolves around hardware.
POW-maximalists fail to recognize that an attacker in a POS system can be forked out if caught. This can be implemented by default This dramatically changes the cost-benefit analysis for attacking. If u assign a 5% probability 2 being caught, it becomes much riskier 2...

What does it takes to add a new transaction / record / block to the blockchain ?
Proof-of-Stake (PoS) is all the rage these days. Ethereum Casper, Cardano Ouroboros, etc.
In my previous article, I discussed how PoS is less resilient than PoW in dealing with worst-case scenarios.
Blockchain Without Waste: Proof-of-Stake
New paper Formal Barriers to Longest-Chain Proof-of-Stake Protocols from Arvind Narayanan of Princeton. Not sure if these papers should be posted to this forum (my instinct is that they should!), but trying it as an experiment (instead of just discussing on Twitter). Key id...
PoS is the cryptoeconomic equivalent of a perpetual motion machine. Moreover, if it were really possible to get it to work, PoW would have probably never been invented in the first place.

PoS is a cheaper and more efficient alternative to proof of w‚Äď
Based on a 2012 paper, @PeercoinPPC is similar to #Bitcoin, but more energy efficient & no hard limit on coin number
David Chaum proposed ecash in 1982. A full 6 years later, it was 1988. and an additional full 20 years after that Satoshi Nakamoto solved it.

There is a lot of confusion around Proof-of-Stake and staking cryptoassets in general. This post introduces a framework for classifying implementations and goes into detail distinguishing between DPoS and PoS, as well as delegation in the projects Cosmos, Cardano, Ethereum an...
