The 34 most profitable Proof of Stake (PoS) coins for 2021
In this article we take a look at several Proof of Stake (PoS) coins for investors building passive income streams. With the DeFi craze causing extremely high Ethereum fees, more and more investors look to PoS instead. Before You StartIf you’re not familiar with Proof of Work, Proof of Stake and cryptocurrency mining/staking, then please […]
ELI5 What’s the minimum amount of XTZ required to stake Tezos?
Is there a minimum amount of XTZ required to begin staking? A lot of new Tezos users ask this question because there certainly is a minimum amount of XTZ required to bake Tezos. tl;dr; No, there is no minimum amount of XTZ required to bake Tezos. To be precise, there is a minimum but it’s […]
Building the Haskell cardano-node on Linux
tl;dr; Jump straight to the build instructions The Details Looking forward to the Haskell mainnet, the next step in the Cardano project, I’ve begun exploring the cardano-node Haskell implementation. I find that exploring source code is much easier if you actually watch the program run for a while. So, the first thing a developer has […]
Cardano Network Tools – CNT
Welcome to the crypto.bi Cardano* Network Tools – CNT home page. crypto.bi CNT is a Python implementation of the Cardano P2P protocol. Think of it as a programmable Cardano node but without the staking and block verification components – just the P2P networking code. You can pick different network message types and develop your own […]

Proof of Stake
Proof of Stake is a consensus mechanism in which block verifiers prove their commitment to the network by staking their coins instead of by proving they performed some work (contrast with Proof of Work).
Staking is the process by which users delegate their Proof of Stake voting rights to a staking pool. The pool then verifies transactions on the users' behalf and, similarly to mining pools, share some of the profits back with the stakers.
A Staking Pool is an organization which verifies transactions on behalf of others in a Proof of Stake consensus system. Stakers delegate their voting rights to a staking pool which, in turn, verifies blocks 24x7. In exchange for the voting rights, the pools share the block rewards with the delegators.
