|Deciphering the Differences Between Proof-of-Stake and Proof-of-Work
As cryptocurrencies continue to evolve, two key consensus mechanisms have emerged for validating transactions on the blockchain: proof-of-work (PoW) and proof-of-stake (PoS). This explainer will examine how these protocols differ and the unique benefits and drawbacks of each.Consensus Mechanisms in Cryptocurrency
Proof-of-work (PoW), first introduced by Bitcoin in 2009, requires miners to compete to add new blocks to the blockchain. By expending significant computational power, miners prove that the work was done to validate transactions.
The first miner to win the race and discover a block is rewarded with newly minted cryptocurrency. PoW relies on decentralized consensus – no single entity controls the network. However, its critics consider it incredibly energy-intensive.
Proof of stake, first conceptualized in a bitcointalk.org thread in 2011, works differently than PoW. Rather than miners, PoS networks have 'validators' who stake or lock up their coins to participate in transaction validation.
The idea is that staking coins aligns incentives between token holders and the network. In some versions of PoS, validators are randomly selected to propose new blocks, rather than competing to discover them.
Comparing PoW and PoS and the Future of Cryptocurrency Consensus
PoS advocates consider this much less computationally expensive. However, PoS networks are considered susceptible to various attacks, like censorship, whales manipulating consensus, Sybil attacks, and the...
|Crypto Economy Swelled 80,466% Since 2013, Despite $1.5 Trillion Loss in...
Nine years and nine months ago, on May 9, 2013, coinmarketcap.com recorded 14 cryptocurrency assets, and bitcoin's overall valuation was $1.24 billion, with 11.13 million bitcoins in circulation at the time. Today, the same website indicates that there are 22,709 crypto assets. Additionally, the market capitalization of the crypto economy has grown significantly, increasing by 80,466% since 2013.The Evolution of the Crypto Economy: From 14 Coins to 22,709 Coins
Although over $1.5 trillion has been lost from the crypto economy since its peak in November 2021, its market capitalization has still increased by more than 80,466% since 2013. A snapshot of coinmarketcap.com (CMC) hosted on archive.org shows that, in 2013, there were 14 coins listed on the website. These included bitcoin, litecoin, peercoin, namecoin, feathercoin, terracoin, devcoin, freicoin, novacoin, chncoin, bbqcoin, mincoin, bitbar, and ixcoin. Together, the value of these crypto assets on May 9, 2013, was just over $1.32 billion.
Of course, many of these coins have been forgotten and a great number of today's top crypto assets did not exist back then like ethereum, bnb coin, solana, cardano, tether, usd coin, and avalanche. Stablecoins did not exist at that time and today, they represent $137 billion in value out of the current $1.06 trillion crypto economy. On May 9, 2013, BTC was trading for a whole lot less than it is today as it was exchanging hands for $111.87 per coin. There were only 11.13 million BTC i...

|A Look at One of Crypto's Greatest Mysteries — Bytecoin's Alleged ...
When Bitcoin first launched, the community was extremely small and it slowly grew during the first two years until the project's creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, left the community for good. During the early years encompassing the world of cryptocurrencies, a number of anonymous individuals like Sunny King, Artforz, Rat4, and Cobra followed Satoshi's method of keeping themselves unknown to the general public. The following is a look at the creator of the privacy-centric Cryptonote protocol, known as Nicolas van Saberhagen. The pseudonym was leveraged by the inventor of the untraceable transaction technology that sparked the features present in the blockchain networks Bytecoin, Monero, and two dozen others.Crypto's Anonymous Personalities and the Mysterious Nicolas van Saberhagen
During the last 13 years, a number of individuals within the cryptocurrency ecosystem have remained anonymous. The use of anonymity when creating a crypto project continues to this very day, and people creating decentralized finance (defi) protocols, and even non-fungible token (NFT) collections have done so under anonymity.
In the early days, after Satoshi Nakamoto left, crypto project anonymity and 'ninja launches' were commonplace within the nascent digital currency environment. For instance, the individual who launched the first graphics processing unit (GPU) mining farm, Artforz, was anonymous.
Artforz also implemented the first FPGA miner and launched a cryptocurrency asset called Tenebrix. The Tenebr...
|The PoW Dominance Purge — Only 6 Crypto Assets out of the Top 50 M...
At the time of writing, only one coin in the top ten crypto assets by market capitalization is a proof-of-work (PoW) token and out of the top 20, there are only three tokens that leverage a PoW consensus mechanism. Moreover, out of 50 of the largest crypto coins by valuation, only six use PoW and out of all of them, there's roughly 230 exahash per second (EH/s) of hashpower combined. Only 12% of the Top 50 Crypto Assets Leverage PoW - Hashpower Currently Equates to Close to 230 Exahash
With Ethereum changing from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS), only 12% of the top 50 coins now leverage PoW. Six crypto asset networks use PoW consensus mechanisms like SHA256 or Scrypt to verify transactions and mint new coins. Bitcoin.com News recently reported on how the top ten would only see one PoW asset remain and at the time of writing, that's bitcoin (BTC). Dogecoin (DOGE) was a top ten contender just recently, but the meme token's market cap has been pushed down to the 11th position.
That leaves ethereum classic (ETC) as the third PoW coin in the top 20 standings today. Doge has roughly 429 terahash per second (TH/s) of hashrate or 0.00042994 EH/s. ETC has even less with 0.00022551 EH/s, which equates to 225 TH/s of hashpower. Following ETC is litecoin (LTC), which is the fourth-ranked PoW coin in the top 50. Roughly 0.000469 EH/s or 469 TH/s is dedicated to the Litecoin chain today. Behind LTC is monero (XMR) with 2.71 gigahash per second (GH/s) of hashrate. The last and ...
|Top 10 PoW Dominance Evaporates 9 Years Later, Only Two Proof-of-Work Co...
The crypto community is patiently waiting for the highly anticipated Ethereum network upgrade from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS) as The Merge is expected to happen 27 days from now. After Ethereum transitions from PoW to PoS, only two crypto assets in the top ten market cap rankings will be PoW tokens, which is a stark contrast to the top ten nine years ago. The PoS Age Begins: Proof-of-Work Crypto Assets Disappear From Top Ten Market Cap Standings
This year, for the first time in crypto history, three stablecoins entered the top ten largest market cap positions. During the first week of May, Terra's stablecoin UST made it into the top ten alongside USDT and USDC, but after UST's depegging incident, the token fell from the top ten coin rankings. After UST's implosion, the Binance Smart Chain-issued BUSD stablecoin joined the top coins by valuation and today, three stablecoins remain in the top ten.
That wasn't the case nine years ago, on August 18, 2013, as there were no stablecoins in the top ten, because the stablecoin trend was not prevalent at all back then. In 27 days, Ethereum will change from PoW to PoS after operating as a PoW chain for seven years, and when that happens, only two coins in the top ten will be PoW tokens. The last standing top two PoW crypto tokens in the top ten will be bitcoin (BTC) and dogecoin (DOGE). This trend was also not prevalent nine years ago in 2013, when the top ten crypto tokens were mostly PoW coins.
