There has been one main consensus mechanism utilised since the inception of Blockchain known as Proof of Work. Many of the best-known cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, have used this system in their fundamental code - although PoW is associated with the high carbon emissions that many say is holding up wider uptake. However with the emergence of Ethereum 2.0 a new algorithm, Proof of Stake, is set to shock and challenge it. In this presentation, we will go through each of these algorithms and the different features they provide.
We will be learning about:
• What are the features of Proof of Work and Proof of Stake systems?
• The benefits and limits regarding each algorithm
• Which Cryptocurrencies are using these?
• Are there any viable alternative algorithms?
