In this episode, Felix walks through the history of Proof-of-Stake and explains how PoS compares to economic arrangements like surety bonds. The episode covers early examples of surety bonds, the parties in such an agreement, the analogy between Proof-of-Stake and surety bonds, as well as important dates in the history of Proof-of-Stake starting with the inception of Peercoin in 2012 over the Tendermint whitepaper in 2014 and Casper research in 2017 to the emergence of the Proof-of-Stake validation ecosystem and the many PoS innovations we are currently witnessing.
