proof of stake is kind of proof of plutocracy IMO?

but more or less the "those can afford to make money are the ones who do make money" thing happens in both proof of stake and proof of work so PoW has all the same problems as PoS plus very serious resource burn, so IMO you might as well do PoS...

I want to try Proof of Cooperation in the design I shared earlier. I'm mostly interested in turn based games, but now that used Antminers are flooding the market it would be fun to explore what kind of tick rates are possible and the energy requirements

Antminer S9, $2.19/ea. includes shipping:

Somebody send me a dozen 😂😂😂

You're right about PoW and PoS both perpetuating existing inequality. I don't see any intrinsic problem with Proof of Cooperation that isn't worse with everything else used for money. Why can't people test things, though? Run simulations (games) instead of handling money when the systems go live?


@AceNovo I'm not familiar with Proof of Cooperation, but I will read up on it!
