The Ethereum 2.0 Cheat Sheet
  • It consumes both time and energy because of the electricity used by the computers while performing continuous mathematical operations for competing with one another for validating transactions.
  • It makes the network somewhat centralized. The large mining operations turn out to be the only miners having the ability to complete and generate profit from performing the computations.
  • When it comes to confirming transactions, PoW proves to be highly time-consuming. It does not facilitate instant transactions.
  • PoS makes use of an algorithm that picks up the computers that will be validating the upcoming block. The participating computers are called Validators. Contrastingly to PoW, a new blockchain is included in the blockchain and is “forged.”
  • PoS needs validators for staking on-the-network cryptocurrency. Staking in terms of cryptocurrency means withholding crypto inside a smart contract or a wallet for a certain period in exchange for rewards, interest, or similar to it. And for doing so, one needs to opt for top-notch Ethereum wallet development.
  • PoS picks are the validators that are going to verify the upcoming block and can take into consideration the variables such as the cryptocurrency amount staked by the validator, the time amount that crypto was staked, and can also select validators randomly for ensuring the validation processes’ decentralization. If the rest of the network approves and adds the verified block in the blockchain, the validator will receive a reward for doing the block verification.
  • In case of fraudulent transactions in the blocks, the validator will be penalized by eliminating a few of their staked crypto and by limiting or revoking their rights completely from participating. If downtime is faced by a validator, a penalty will take place for making sure that the fleet of the validators of Ethereum is reliable and stable.
