Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake

While trying to learn more about how Bitcoin, Ethereum, or other cryptocurrencies work, you must have come across these two difficult terms — Proof of work (POW) and Proof of stake (POS). Both terms are quite difficult to understand without the technological knowledge.

In reality, both terms are not that hard to get. Proof of work and proof of stake are two kinds of computer algorithms that are responsible for today’s success of digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. First of all, let’s start with basic definitions of POW and POS.

Tokia exchange platform in your pocket

Paying for your groceries via debit card is no surprise to anyone, but buying it with bitcoin seems like the thing from a futuristic movie. It’s hard to understand how digital assets work, and paying in crypto for everyday basis is nearly impossible to imagine. One of the biggest criticisms of cryptocurrencies is that they are still not a usable solution for day-to-day purchases.

As a result, the market strives for a change and brand new solutions are emerging. Brand new concepts of cryptocurrency marketplaces are being presented to the finance and technology sector.

Even after all this time, it not easy to use bitcoin as a payment method for everyday use. Firstly, it is rather expensive to trade in a reasonable amount of funds. Secondly, you have to have at least an intermediate technology knowledge to do so. And that makes it too complicated because you don’t want to waste your precious time on minor details while buying your morning latte. …

Introduction to private coins

In a society where our privacy is constantly under threat, lack of privacy in process of purchase of cryptocurrencies is not an exception. Therefore, one of the most important aspects of cryptocurrency is the privacy of the transaction. Many perceived Bitcoin as an anonymous currency or payment mode in its early years. It was believed to be one of the great promises of this technology — anonymity. The transactions are recorded and made public, but they are linked only with an electronic address. …
