What is Proof-of-Stake?

  1. They must own some stake in the network by depositing tokens into a sort of blockchain safe within it, which is usually locked for a given amount of time. This is to “vouch” for the transaction being validated. How much stake they have in the network also plays a role in who is chosen to validate.
  2. The semi-random second element varies between blockchains but can include what’s called Coin Age Selection and the Randomized Blockchain Selection — focusing on either a user’s hash value and stake volume and the length at which a user has staked tokens.
