Proof of Stake (PoS)

    Proof of Stake (PoS) systems randomly select block validators from all nodes in the blockchain network. Block validators must lock their coins (referred to as staking) to participate. Their stake acts as collateral. Malicious block validators risk losing their stake and being kicked out of the blockchain network, while honest block validators earn rewards for each new block produced. PoS blockchains achieve distributed consensus according to the economic stake block validators commit to the blockchain network.
