The PoW vs. PoS Debate | Lyn Alden & Justin Drake
Lyn Alden is the Founder of Lyn Alden Investment Strategy and an expert in macro markets who’s also a strong Bitcoin, proof-of-work proponent. Her friendly counterpart, Justin Drake is a researcher at the Ethereum Foundation and is pro proof-of-stake. Both are recurring guests on Bankless!
The two experts debate which is better: proof-of-work or proof-of-stake for creating a global-crypto money system? Other topics include: economic security, deterrence and recoverability in the face of the dreaded 51% attack, minimization of governance power, economic fairness, commodity vs. equity money, and so much more!
Which is your preference, proof-of-work or proof-of-stake? Warning: after this debate, your preference may change.
