CoinMarketCap and Luxcore bring you: Proof of Stake

From the CMC editorial desk: Having read all kinds of articles about Proof of Stake, we started wanting to see the whole picture, explained in the same place, in an easy-to-understand way.

We are such big believers in blockchain decentralization, though, that when the opportunity came along to be among the launch coins on Bitfineon we leapt at it!
