Warning: This article is not noob friendly. It assumes you already know about Decred and it’s hybrid PoS & PoW consensus mechanism, as well as the nature of double spend attacks, otherwise known as 51% attacks.
This article tries to answer the following questions:
1. Is Decred’s Hybrid Proof of Work & Proof of Stake consensus mechanism more resistant to a double spend attack (often called a 51% attack) than Bitcoin’s Proof of Work consensus mechanism?
