The Evolution of Proof of Stake – From Peercoin and Nxt to Algorand
Bitcoinist article describes how Proof of Stake evolved into the favored consensus mechanism by new crypto networks, as a more energy-efficient and secure solution compared to Proof of Work. In 2011 the concept of PoS emerged from Peercoin, but only partially implemented. It was only in 2013 with the launch of Nxt that PoS was fully tested and executed. Developed by the Jelurida team, Nxt was the first Proof of Stake blockchain. This did not prevent Algorand from making unfounded claims about creating the world's "First Pure PoS blockchain". Judge for yourself.
