Vitalik Buterin: all cryptocurrencies should switch to PoS

Vitalik Buterin: all cryptocurrencies should switch to PoS Vitalik Buterin - co-founder of Ethereum

The Benefits of Proof-of-Stake Algorithm for Cryptocurrencies

Ethereum's co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, recently spoke at the Mainnet 2022 conference about the benefits of the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) algorithm for cryptocurrencies. According to Buterin, transitioning from Proof-of-Work (PoW) to PoS can be useful for any cryptocurrency. In this article, we'll dive deeper into his thoughts on the matter and discuss why PoS is becoming a more mature technology.

I would say that all cryptocurrencies should switch to PoS. This technology is becoming more mature, and the transition is becoming more justified. I hope that Zcash and Dogecoin will switch to PoS soon enough..

Buterin said

Why Ethereum Was Built on PoW

Buterin shared that he was inspired by the concept of Bitcoin, which led him to the cryptocurrency industry. He fell in love with this technology and built Ethereum on the PoW algorithm. However, the developers of the second cryptocurrency, Ethereum Classic, later realized the benefits of switching to PoS.

The Benefits of PoS

Buterin believes that all cryptocurrencies should switch to PoS, as this technology is becoming more mature, and the transition is becoming more justified. Zcash and Dogecoin are two cryptocurrencies that he hopes will switch to PoS soon enough.

One of the main benefits of PoS is that it's much more energy-efficient than PoW. In a PoW system, miners need to solve complex mathematical problems to validate transactions and earn rewards. This requires a lot of computational power and consumes a vast amount of energy. PoS, on the other hand, allows validators to participate in the consensus process by staking their cryptocurrency. The amount of cryptocurrency a validator can stake is proportional to their chances of being chosen to validate the next block of transactions. This process consumes significantly less energy than PoW.

Anonymity in Cryptocurrencies

Buterin also noted that the second cryptocurrency has no opportunities to anonymize transactions, and they are unlikely to appear in the next five years. One of the leading developers of Ethereum, Tim Beiko, said that if the project had such opportunities, it would make the second cryptocurrency even stronger. Beiko hopes that he will see such solutions, while, according to him, it is necessary to anonymize transactions at the first level of the blockchain.

The Scalability of Ethereum

Buterin is confident that over the next 18 months, Ethereum will become much more scalable, which will significantly reduce transaction fees. He previously stated that third-level solutions make sense only if they provide functions other than those provided by second-level protocols.


The PoS algorithm is becoming more popular among cryptocurrencies due to its energy efficiency and scalability. Ethereum's co-founder, Vitalik Buterin, encourages all cryptocurrencies to switch to PoS, as it can bring significant benefits. Additionally, anonymity in transactions remains an important factor to consider for developers. It's clear that the cryptocurrency industry is continuously evolving, and as it does, we can expect to see more developments and advancements in the technology.
