Delegated Proof of Stake


Delegated Proof of Stake can be thought of as representative democracy. Token holders vote on a representative who then validates the network for them. DPoS chains have fewer validators what increases efficacy at the cost of increased centralization.

DPoS can be compared to the representative democracy – participants vote on a trusted representative, called a delegate, to secure the network on their behalf. Users can theoretically replace “bad delegates” if they act against the majority consensus.
