Ardor - the green PoS chain contender
Lior has been recently interviewed by Inside Bitcoins crypto media. He discussed which implications could have the Bitcoin’s miners going offline, its intensive energy footprint, and the green impulse in the crypto space to move from Proof of Work to Proof of Stake. Regarding ETH 2.0, Lior considers the blockchain switch to PoS very risky, therefore not happening anytime soon and still keeping some PoW elements. On the contrary, Ardor blockchain, based on Nxt technology with PoS protocol, already solves the problems that Ethereum is still trying to tackle with its ETH 2.0 upgrade: energy-green protocol to maintain the security of the network, lightweight smart contracts, scalability and interoperability, and out-of-the-box privacy features.
