There are two most common types of consensus protocols, proof of work (PoW) and proof of stake (PoS). A consensus protocol has a few main functions; selecting a block producer, validating the block is correct, and rewarding the block producer. The biggest difference between PoW with Bitcoin and PoS with Cardano is how the block producer is selected.
PoW is based on a physical resource, which requires hardware machines such as ASIC.
PoS is based on a virtual resource. Cardano uses their native token, ADA, to assign which stake pool gets to produce the blocks in the blockchain.
Bitcoin is one of the most secure protocols but what makes it incredibly secure is the physical resources and energy consumption required to take over the network. To distort and manipulate the blockchain, an attacker requires having the majority control of the hashing power. Security comes at a cost and the energy consumption will increase over time as the Bitcoin network grows.
But what if you can have your cake and eat it too? Use a fraction of the energy consumption with the same level of security.
To distort Cardano’s network you would need to control the majority ada. Below is a calculation of the amount of money required to have majority control of Cardano’s network.
Cardano’s protocol goes through a rigorous peer-reviewed process.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
