The 33 most profitable Proof of Stake (PoS) coins for 2019
In this article we take a look at several Proof of Stake coins as a way to earn passive income. With wider cryptocurrency adoption, investors are looking for passive income in order to make their crypto work for them. But that's easier said than done. In these early days of cryptocurrencies, not many solutions exist that provide safe and consistent returns. Some passive income programs have turned out to be ponzi schemes and many investors have grown justifiably wary of participating in such networ...

How does Proof of Stake work
In the cryptocurrency universe, Proof of Stake (PoS) is an alternative to Proof of Work (PoW). While PoW seeks to guarantee that each network participant has performed a certain amount of work in order to receive a reward, Proof of Stake requires participants to prove that they are willing to guarantee the integrity of their participation by "risking" a certain amount of cryptocurrency in the minting process. Participants thus "stake" a certain amount every time they verify a block of transactions. If...

Key Points of the EOS Proof-of-Stake VS Ethereum Proof-of-Work Argument Live Bitcoin News
If you have been trying to make sense of the Ethereum VS EOS debate, you'll most likely have heard about the terms proof-of-stake and proof-of-work. One of the biggest talking points of the EOS VS Ethereum debate is the consensus protocols of both platforms. EOS uses a proof-of-stake (POS) protocol while Ethereum uses a Proof-of-work protocol. Interestingly, the difference in the consensus system of the two coins is influencing how investors and traders perceive them. For instance, The price of EOS cryptocurrency has jumped 107% this year while Ethereum has lost 10% in the same period. However, for the average cryptocurrency trader/investor, not much effort has been placed into explaining the key similarities and differences, and why such distinctive features could influence your trading and investment decisions. This piece examines the key features of proof-of-stake VS proof-of-work.

Proof of Stake (PoS) Bitcoin Wiki
Proof of stake(PoS) is a method of securing a cryptocurrency network through requesting users to show ownership of a certain amount of currency. It is different from proof-of-work systems that run hashing algorithms to validate electronic transactions. It is most commonly used as a supplement to proof-of-work in Peercoin and a few other electronic currencies. Proof-of-stake must have a way of defining the next valid block in any blockchain. Selection by account balance would result in (undesirable) centralization, as the single richest member would have a permanent advantage. Instead, several different methods of selection have been devised.

The Creator of Proof-of-Stake Thinks He Finally Figured It Out - CoinDesk
Known for creating the first proof-of-stake-based cryptocurrency, pseudonymous developer Sunny King is back with an idea that's sure to surprise adding hardware. Proof-of-stake, or PoS, has been heralded as a more ecological way to come to consensus on blockchains since it doesn't rely on expensive hardware using vast amounts of electricity to compute mathematical puzzles (for instance, like bitcoins proof-of-work). As a result of this, and the algorithm's ability to handle more scale, various high-profile blockchain projects, including EOS, Tezos, NEO and Cardano, have adopted the system. But according to King, by reworking the algorithm to allow for specialized hardware, PoS will be even better suited for high-speed transaction throughput.
