Proof-of-Stake (PoS)

In addition to proof of work (PoW), an alternative consensus mechanism is the so-called proof of stake (PoS). This procedure involves evaluating nodes in the network to define who is allowed to create the next block. This can be achieved, for example, by measuring which node generates numerous transactions, holds a large amount of capital, or is strongly connected in the community [1].
