Crypto Consensus Methods: All You NEED To Know!!

Jan 04, 2022

Hey Guys,

I've noticed that I get a lot of comments asking about all the different consensus algorithms in cryptocurrency whenever I review one with a unique consensus (e.g. proof of work).

As you can see, I've decided to make a video unpacking over a dozen unique consensus algorithms and how they work.

I know this consensus stuff sounds super technical, but it's pretty easy to understand if you can grasp the concept of consensus.

It's also extremely important to know since each cryptocurrency consensus algorithm comes with its own pros and cons.

Cryptocurrency consensus algorithms generally fall into one of four categories: proof of work, proof of stake, proof of authority, or proof of space.

There is of course a bit of overlap between these categories, and some cryptocurrencies use more than one consensus algorithm.

There are also many different ways of doing proof of work, proof of stake, proof of authority, and proof of space.

Although I don't explain every single one of those here, I do cover the ones belonging to most of the biggest crypto projects.

I hope you find this topic as interesting as I did. Be sure to drop a comment at the end if you think there's an important crypto consensus algorithm I missed.
