Why Cartesi’s Zero Assumptions Staking Is a Game-Changer for PoS

Cartesi is a layer-2 platform for the development and deployment of scalable decentralized applications. It provides a bridge between Linux and blockchains like Ethereum, allowing developers to build their dApps off-chain in a familiar Linux environment, without compromising on-chain decentralization and security. Whether you’re interested in Cartesi’s tech stack as a developer or a user, there are a few things to know about the PoS system it’s pioneered. Cartesi is doing things a little differently from other projects – and for good reason. Zero Assumptions Staking Proof-of-Stake based systems achieve consensus by incentivizing users to stake tokens as collateral on the platform in exchange for the rights to perform particular tasks and earn rewards. However, they work under the assumption that no malicious user holds more than 50% of tokens available. It is therefore crucial that tokens are well distributed, and projects carefully plan rewards systems for the algorithms to…
