I just talked to a friend need info
« on: August 22, 2014, 11:57:04 AM »

How is proof of stake better than mining in securing a unique transaction ID?

He is skeptical of BitSharesX (I just told him, hes a stock market trader by trade).

What is the goal of corrupting a delegate? I mean what good would it do. Worst case turn there server off........We have 9 pages of people willing to replace them

Proof of Work is democracy via hash power.  Bitcoin uses Delegated Proof of Work via the Mining Pools.   Economics will result in only 2 or 3 large mining operations that can perform profitably.

Hes not convinced.  He liked in nautiliuscoin or something.

He probably wont be so skeptical when BTSX is 2nd or 1st.

Bitcoin isn't just numbers from God. Those numbers come from miners who can be corrupted. Bitcoin has already suffered a 51% attack and there is no way to know how much hashing power anyone has stashed away in secret.

There is also an audio track of Bytemaster on LetsTalkBitcoin where he discusses the security aspects of DPOS. Adam, the host, asked many of the same questions. Anyone have the link?

If market-pegs work as intended, your friend could theoretically buy, sell, and short bitNautiliuscoin (or something) on BitsharesX with more scalability, faster processing, anonymity, etc.  The opposite is not true.
