List Of Top 10 Proof Of Stake Cryptocurrencies

Let's first be clear about the concepts. !



What is proof of stake?



It is a method to mine or verify transactions in a block. It depends on how many coins someone has. This means that the miner has more mining power the more cryptocurrency he/she owns. In the proof of stake system, there is no block reward, so the miners take transaction fees. The Proof of stake currencies can have several thousand times the cost effectiveness of Proof of work currencies.



Peercoin, the first cryptocurrency to adopt this proof of stake method, was followed by Nxt Blockcoin, Shadowcoin and Blockcoin soon after Peercoin.



Why should you choose proof-of–stake coins instead?



Proof of Work (POW), which is a mining system, requires a large amount of computation to run multiple cryptographic. This power then leads to high amounts of electricity. In 2015 one bitcoin transaction required the amount of electricity that would power 1.57 American households per night. To kick out that electricity bill, miners sell their awarded coins for fiat money. This reduces the price for cryptocurrency. This is why ProofofStake was created.



These days there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies using Proof of stake system. Here are some of the top ten cryptocurrencies.



1. DASH



Dash is one the most well-known cryptocurrency. Digital cash is what Dash is commonly known for. It is the first to use proof of stake technology. It is built on the core bitcoin platform or system but Digital cash has the additional function of privacy and quick transaction such as InstantSend and PrivateSend.



Digital cash lets its holders run a masternode to receive dividends in the shape of a dash. Also, they can stake a minimum 1000 DASH. A minimum investment of $1,110,000 is required to acquire one dash token.



It has an annual return of 7.5% plus the price appreciation reward of DASH.



2. NEO



NEO is China's first open-source blockchain project. It uses a delegated Byzantine Fail Tolerance (dBFT). A stake of at least 1,000 NEO is required, which would be an investment of $87,000. The current price is $87.

These stakes are eligible for GAS, which is completely different from cryptocurrency tokens. GAS has a market capitalization in excess of $319 million and a value above $34.



GAS is generated based on how much coin you have. GAS is created every 5 minutes. A 5.5% annual return is possible.



3. PIVX



PIVX means Private Instant Verified Transaction. It is a Proof of Stake (POS) that focus on privacy and security while ongoing transaction. PIVX was forked out of DASH in 2016.

PIVX is a stake that requires 10,000 PIVX unit. Which you have to an investment of $110,000 and value of one unit is 11.23. You can earn about of 4.8% in an annual return. This DIY guide will help you set up a master service or master node.



4. LISK



It uses a custom Proof of Stake also known as DPoS or delegated Proof of Stake. Only 101 delegates are able to stake coins, the delegates are voted on a rolling basis by the community. Anyone can register a delegate and that account can collect votes for any coin holder. 1 LSK equals 1 vote. Every coin holder can vote with the entire amount in his account. Voting is dynamic. Those who don't receive a vote are listed on standby.

As per the statement made in December 2017, they had implemented Casper, an update to initiate Proof of Stake evolution and the announcement said Casper will soon be available on the Testnet.



10. DIVII and NXT



Divi - has a market cap of $ 16.77M and uses a 5-tiered master system with the first level requiring a 1,000 investment. DIVI requires a $2,490 investment as its current price at $2.72 is $2.72

NXT - To stake a stake, you must have at least 1000 coins. At $0.64, the investment would be approximately $640.

There are many other Proof-of-stake cryptocurrencies in the market but these are the most popular ones. The other cryptocurrencies include Omni, BitcoinDark, BitShares, Blocknet, CLAMS, Cloakcoin, Crowns, Diamond, Elastic, Factom, and GridCoin.



This technique is one of the smartest ways to earn passive income. There are many currencies that have low entry barriers.



It's true that investing in cryptocurrencies only, won't make you richer but 1% to 5% earning is not bad at all for literally doing nothing and just keeping your wallet open. Because there is ZERO interest, it is more profitable to stake in countries like the USA.
