Aenco X-files: What is Proof of Stake?

Proof of Stake (PoS) is a mechanism to reach consensus on the blockchain whereby transaction blocks are validated (mined) by a select few who are granted mining power by staking their coins on the network. In the Proof of Stake concept, a person can validate transaction blocks according to how many coins they hold/stake. More mining power is granted to the miner with more coins at stake.

The History of Proof of Stake

Proof of Stake was introduced as an improvement to the first consensus mechanism of blockchain which is the Proof of Work.

Bitcoin blockchain, the first blockchain invented in 2009 was programmed to allow a consensus mechanism of block validation where miners would solve very difficult mathematical puzzles needed to prove a truth. This process was called Proof of Work (PoW) and it is considered not ecologically friendly because it requires a high amount of electricity and energy consumption. It is also a very non-alterable slow process of transaction validation which has limited the transaction speed on the blockchain.

A few blockchains are already operating on the Proof of Stake mechanism and they include Peercoin, Nxt, Blackcoin, Polkadot, EOSIO, and Cardano. Ethereum, the most active blockchain supporting hundreds of decentralised solutions and the largest community of crypto enthusiasts is in the process of transitioning to a PoS blockchain called Ethereum 2.0. It was originally designed as a PoW blockchain.

What PoS offers

The attempt to improve the functionality of a blockchain especially in the aspect of scalability birthed the Proof of Stake concept. It offers much more than the PoW mechanism with low consumption of energy and increment in transaction speed because instead of utilizing energy to answer PoW puzzles, a PoS miner is focused on mining a percentage of transactions that is reflective of their ownership stake.
