Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake

In this episode we look at Proof of Work vs. Proof of Stake.

There are two major camps when it come to securing cryptocurrency networks. One, is Proof of Work, or mining, in which high speed computers race to solve complex cryptographic problems. The winner gets rewarded with newly 'mined' coins.

The other is Proof of Stake. With PoS, users on the network have to put up, or 'stake' large numbers of coins to vie for the right to validate transactions and secure the network. If they do, the get a transaction fee as a reward.
