A Case for the Dirtier but More Secure Crypto PoW

– The blockchain industry has largely moved away from Bitcoin-style mining for cryptocurrency, due to its high power consumption and lack of scalability.

– There are still some proponents of proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanisms, as they argue that they are more secure and decentralized than proof-of-stake (PoS).

– PoW requires a significant amount of computing power to solve math puzzles in order to add new information to the blockchain and generate new bitcoins.

– PoS relies on validators who put up a bond for good behavior in order to add new information to the blockchain.

– Some argue that PoS is more vulnerable to 51% attacks, as it is easier for validators to build large empires.

– Others argue that PoW is more centralized, as a few major mining firms control the majority of the computing power.
