Ethereum Miners Can Transition to These Coins and Boost Their Values

By now, every Ethereum (ETH) fan knows that this blockchain is in the process of switching from a proof-of-work (PoW) to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism. What’s less widely known, even among those in the Ethereum community, is what will happen to the miners that help secure this network. Having invested plenty of capital in developing mining rigs and facilities, it seems unlikely that the end of Ethereum mining will result in such miners leaving the industry altogether. In fact, anal...

Stakes Get Higher As El Salvador Offered Volcanic BTC Leverage In Talks With IMF

Rainy Season Will Test Just How Watertight China’s Bitcoin Mining Ban Is

'Fiat-Like' Proof-of-Stake Chains Favor Centralization & Rich Players

One of the most debated mechanisms now is proof-of-stake (PoS). While its supporters argue that it avoids the eye-watering energy consumption associated with proof-of-work (PoW) networks such as Bitcoin (B...
