Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) is a Sybil protection mechanism invented by Dan Larimer and used by certain distributed ledgers, including Radix. In DPoS, holders can delegate their network tokens to validators in exchange for a share of the staking rewards. Usually, inclusion in the approved validator set is conditional upon token holdings.

Staking, in the context of distributed ledgers, involves participants committing (or ‘staking’) a designated amount of the network's native tokens to support operations like transaction validation and consensus maintenance. This process is central to Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithms, a contemporary alternative to traditional Proof of Work (PoW) systems.



Radix and Staking

Radix uses a specialized staking mechanism to fortify its network's integrity and security.
