Proof of Stake (PoS)

What does Proof of Stake (PoS) means?

A short form of Proof of Stake. It’s a newer consensus relative to Proof of Work. And it helps validate transactions on the blockchain, keeping the system transparent, secure, and safe. The provision in a PoS ensures the creation of new blocks after block verification by other parties based on their stake size. Any invalidation leads to a loss (either all or part) of their stakes. The miners in this instance also get rewards for participating in the validation.


Examples of blockchains that use PoS include:

  1. Solana
  2. Polkadot
  3. Avalanche
